The Banner Saga launches itself

The Banner Saga launches itself

Kickstarter has already allowed many projects to come to life in the video game industry and we should be thankful. The Banner Saga, developed by Stoic, an independent game development company founded by former Bioware employees, is now available to all and it looks very promising in many respects. Check out the launch trailer and tell us what you think of it.

Funny, I searched for some interesting indies just yesterday and stumbled upon this. It sure looks pretty but i dont know if it can really deliver gameplay wise. It really looked boring in the latter aspect. We'll see...

Very good art (vikings), too bad the genre is nothing to my liking.

It looks like Heroes of Might and Magic for better or worse.

About the game


What's up?

    Melmoth @AndreasZ94: for consoles 3d gaming (with a few exceptions) started with the 32bit era. for people playing on computers they's been a steady stream of 3d games from back to the early 80's (4 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Yea.. NPCs in single player games should send you hate mail, like real people ;) (4 Hours ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: I feel like its the enemy reactions to getting shot that's the real problem, they recover so fast and act like they never got shot (6 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: I've only played a bit of U4, but from what I did, it wasn't a big step up from 3. (6 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Ellie helping you out in melee situations was fun too. It's their only game where they made some good gameplay design elements when it came to enemies. (6 Hours ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: Are u talking about U4 because i feel like the gunplay was pretty good, same for U2 (6 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: Certainly their best game of combining both, hence why I think its their best. They got the pacing right, but it also had a extra element in horror. (6 Hours ago)
