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

    Tiz @asdfg: That's fair. I did see a Pirate game called Black something that looked a lot like SoT, so that understandable if the game looks like a been there done that kind of endeavour. (38 minutes ago)

    Tiz Especially where PVE is concerned. But I think when they lift the lid on impressions we'll be able to have a more informed discussion about it. (40 minutes ago)

    Tiz @GriftGFX: Multiplayer can give legs to games that really have no business having legs. So the answer to that is I really don't know. (42 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: Then I guess I'd like to see how deep the sandbox goes. I think the game looks good and has mostly favourable impressions from those who have played it and I'd like to confirm this myself. (44 minutes ago)
  • asdfg
    asdfg I think one other reason because I'm so negative against SoT is because we have droves of those kinda games on PC. Open world, coop, survival, exploring. Most of them in early access. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I mean... consider this: Do you think multiplayer would really make NMS that much more interesting? I don't. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Sorta like... NMS :) (2 Hours ago)
