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.

    MrWhite Just 2 camera angles, which is a bummer, but still fun. Two behind the goals, and one up in the stands overlooking the whole pitch. (7 Hours ago)

    MrWhite Every game in stereoscopic 3d. It's not 360 degrees like you're in the stands, more like you're in a directors box viewing out. (7 Hours ago)
