Recipe for disaster for a smaller developer... That and a good chance of random procedural crap.

I'd give it a shot at release but I'm not 'investing' in something so risky.

I'll never really understand the need to go "super mega open free form sandbox do absolutely whatever you want to do". Going open is nice and fine, going so unfocused is just a recipe for boredom, or disaster, DV8 is actually right.

You're telling me you want all this and all you need is 500k? Thats going to be either a procedurally generated game (terrible) or a really small one with that budget.

Its definitely a game I'd play since its not turn based but I wouldn't fund it. I find it funny that they say a few times that "Its a lot to ask". Maybe any amount is, but really, I've seen smaller scale 2D games need 2 times that. But what do I really know?

lmao here comes jake-sf where if it isnt made in the early 90s it sucks. i have yet to see a positive post from this guy unless it relates to doom.

Very excited for this. Its a collaborative effort by the people who have made some of the best skyrim mods to make their own more fantasy based rpg in that vein. Can't wait!

Thats a funny statement since I never said in any way that this would suck or that I wouldn't like it, I actually expect I would, this has nothing to do with me liking it or not.

They have nothing worth while to show in those videos. I have little faith in a small developer having such scale and pulling it off. Bethesda makes those sort of games and fails in many of those aspects. They have hundreds if not thousands of people working on the games for years.

Doesn't really scream 'experience' in the industry to me. Going from mods to full fledged development is a bit of a stretch.

I'm not saying this WILL fail, just that the odds are stacked against them horribly. Too many people try to build their grand opus as their first title and fail miserably. I would have preferred a much smaller scale rpg for their first endeavor.

Baldur's Gate,Fable,and Kingdoms Of Amalur:reckoning say hi(for first comment) and the creators of 90% of Valve's games(for second comment) say hi.

It's hard for me to get behind something like this where it's such an ambitious idea by such a small no name dev. Good luck to him, but I won't be investing any money into it until I see player reviews.
