REALLY good to hear! Now it gives me another look on the game. Thought this was the full act 1 (way to short). I'm just a little bit scared for the play-duration of . I hope it's not too short because of worktime...

Greetings!

Ok played the demo (finished in 1/2 hour )

Some things:
1. Way to short!!
2. Nice atmosfeer
3. Nice quests (there are 3 in demo).
4. Voice could be better at certain points.

Thats about it for now

Actually in this game I saved almost every 5 minuts, every time I opened a door I saved.

Just go hostile on rats, and watch when your characters attack; they will kick part of the time. For the rats in the cell east of Edmond's, either the hero or DK have to enter and go at least half way into the cell.

As I said
game == beyond great. But theire are a couple of faults that I have discoverd. I hope these are helpfull in making the final game better.

1. select all keyboard button & priority button.
I realy hate that every time I need to select all my chars I have to move my mouse aaaaaaaallllllll the way to the other side of the screen to press that button. A keyboard button would be helpfull here.

2. Voice acting => needs work (sorry guys but just MHO) Is theire even a way to silence the voices. I can't stand that DK.

3. pathfinding isn't always on target. I wanted to lift a lever and he walks out the room behind the wall to to lever and can't touch it, while I clearly had the mouse pointer on the lever.

4. not so much an issue in the demo but when theire are more chars a formation would be nice. You know first the warriors, then the mages, than the survivors.

5. this just an observation but when I read the interview theire was talk about comlicates AI tactics. Since this is the beginning of the game I saw very little of it. I always play with mage/warrior and furgus has no chance agianst my mage. All braun and no brain sort of speak.

6. Is theire a way to move the minimap? i am used of having it in my lower left corner.

7. battles. Ok now that we're with 2 the pause button is being used a lot more. But the actual battle seems a bit slow. Is this because the speed skillpoints are a bit low or something else but a tiny bit faster wouldn't hurt. The pause buttons allow it.

8. little hint: more pictures with skill system please.


But don't be mistaken the demo is great and ooooooooow sooooooo gooooooooood

i feel sorry for the actor who did the DK's voice, everyone says hes bad and all. I personally like it, or at least dont hate it.

what do you mean by slow battles???


and cant you click and drag the minimap??/
hmm.

yes, i like it not so in the middle of the screen, but i dont really need it. NOW. but probably in the real game i will

The voice is great but it just doesn't fit the DK. Its more of a robotic sound.

As for the speed of battles. I use the pause buttons so much that most of the tme i pause and switch attacks when the prevous attack is still going on. With furgus for instance I had som problem with the DK. I tried switching weapons most of the time but I was to fast for my own good. Strange thing is that for tha mage it is just perfect (maybe because he uses ranged attacks.)

how do you use mage???


i never had any spells in the begiining? or do you wait to level up??


and are the warrior spells always worrking? the ones that do more damage? or do i have to use em?

passive, thats it! are they passive?



yes, its a great voice. maybe use it for another character? i dont think i voice like that should be wasted, it just doesn't fit the context. but its okay. i dont mind it, just if you can do anything 'bout it.
or is to late???

You can adjust the voice volume, though this effects all voices.

Click on the edge of the mini-map to move it, on the artwork. Clicking on the mini-map itself, you can order your characters somewhere (areas you have covered) with much less clicking.
