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.

    MikeManiac61 Wow... I know some people don't care about Linkin Park. But the lead singers death caught me by surprise. (1 Hour ago)

    MikeManiac61 @alimokrane: I would say that the Soul series is "challenging" than hard. Like Grift said, difficulty modes can be poorly designed and give unfair advantages to the AI IMO. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX A lot of them do.. but sometimes difficulty modes are poorly designed too. But that's nothing new. People have been phoning in hard and easy modes for decades. (6 Hours ago)

    alimokrane Why can't the AAA games have hard modes like those games, that's what's annoying... (6 Hours ago)
