This poll is now closed.
Being hinted at on social networks (as UNSACRED) and getting a website shortly after
where an ominous counter ran out back on April 1, it seemed like a joke fitting the date.
Due to the similarity to the predecessor publisher Deep Silver didn't hesitate to force a renaming.
Hence the project was reborn as UNBENDED (http://www.unbended.zone/en/).

Despite that additional trouble, some more details were shared and the first donation campaign was launched:
The usual 'Keep it up!' contribution aside, early supporters were promised to get gravestones (as can be seen in Sacred 1+2),
uniquely named NPCs or even be mayors of their own small villages.

Some old fans already found their way into the forums and started various discussions.
Although the developers describe the work on concept and content to be progressing well, say also say
please, donít expect anything before the end of 2015.

So it's a game where we bend things? Are we playing as a bending robot?

I am not economically viable.

I didn't love Sacred 2, but it did have a lot of potential, so this could be a great game if the same level of detail is put in, but with better combat. As such, I choose the third option.

The name is a reference to the developers not backing down despite the hardships (like Deep Silver denying the use of "Unsacred")
and pursuing their idea of an ideal Sacred successor.

3 characters have been revealed, 3 are yet to come. Maybe there's a robot among them?
Sacred 2 had the Temple Guardian as a pc, so it wouldn't be too far off...

Sacred 1 and 2 were both among my favorite "diablo clone/ARPG"s. pretty stoked. good old German engineering in these titles!

How about, that developer makes crappy games so I don't care about anything they plan to make in the future?

Well if the old Ascaron team is making this instead of whatever braindead monkeys they got to make Sacred 3, then this may just have a chance.

Though I doubt it will dethrone Sacred 2 Gold.

Should i have mentioned that the devs of recently released Sacred 3 got nothing to do with UNBENDED?
Thought that the hint at Deep Silver denying the name would be enough.

Anyway, it's some the folks of Sacred 1 who got back together to bring us a good old A-RPG in ISO perspective.
