From what I understand it's five people making the game. I'm not going to expect much at this point. I thought the team was much larger like they had on Darksiders.

My brother is a hardcore Joe Mad and Battle Chasers fan. He is salivating over this game. Gotta say it's looking damn good.

That trailer makes it look like a cross between Bastion + FF + Blizzardtype graphics.

Yes please.



Edit - $850k on a $500k goal via kickstarter last Sept, very nice.

Pretty fun game so far. I did the first dungeon on hard and it seems well balanced too. Only thing I'm not too keen on is the save system (Diablo-style "save and exit" rather than traditional RPG save slots); I unlocked the ability spec each character one of two ways with perks, and since you can't make hard saves I've put off making a decision. If you can respec easily it's no big deal, but I don't know if that's possible yet or not.

You can remove and reassign the perk points at will.

As someone who always hoarded MP and items in RPGs growing up (For that hard battle that rarely came)...this overcharge feature is genius.

I steamrolled everything and doing the medium difficulty and hard difficulty for dungeons until I get my group to level 13 headed into the dig. Now I am stuck not being able to survive normal...

I know I must be doing something wrong, but not quite sure what

Levels mean a fucking ton in this game, could be that. If you're even -1 level on the enemies you're fighting it'll feel nearly impossible. -2 levels might actually be impossible. And that's just raw character level, not even accounting for potential gear slots that are many, many levels out of date due to the rng nature of loot.

Game is pretty cool, but I can't get it to actually function properly right now. DX10 mode makes it crash 100% of the time about 10 minutes in, regardless of where I am or what I'm doing in game. DX9 mode doesn't crash, but every exploration map/dungeon is blurry/out of focus, like the camera is zoomed is focused on some random part of the map and everything else is just a complete haze. Can't even really tell what objects on the ground are.

Can't figure out what the issue is either. No combination of compatibility mode settings change anything, and I'm already on latest video drivers. I can't find a single random internet nerd complaining about this problem either, so so far it seems to be just me?

Playing it on PS4. Think I’m 7-8 hours in, really having fun with it. Overcharge feature is great cause it actually allows you to use your abilities without chugging mana potions like most RPGs. I like all the buffs, debuffs, and synergy/interactions. Just unlocked Red. She’s awesome.

I’ve been horsing the +1 AP to all characters items until I unlock the final devil guy, don’t want to waste them. Does anyone know if he still gets the point if he’s not in the party yet?

I actually rolled my video driver back a version and it seems way more stable so far, here's to hoping.

My only gripe I have currently is the party members you aren't using don't get any kind of passive leveling, and difficulty scaling is so harsh that if they fall even a few levels behind you almost can't use them. Not really sure of a good way to catch people up currently, so kind of thinking you just need to pick your 3 and run them forever?
