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.

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (22 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (23 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (1 Day ago)
