In Topic: Feral's upcoming project?

Many many hours into TW: Warhammer 2 I'm still just scratching the surface. Then Shadow of the Tomb Raider went on sale this week, the first time since I upgraded to Catalina so I picked that up. Now Bioshock 2:Remastered is out... And I had other Feral games in my backlog already,

I just learned that their XCOM 2 iOS port won't run on my iPad. Just as well!

I'd never buy an Early Access game. That's just a fancy name for prolonged, extended (sometimes never finished) beta version.
I am in the "almost never" camp. If it's the team's first early access game than the risk is very high.

If you don't count kickstarters which included a beta perk, I've only backed two early access games. One tanked quickly (they had developed a Myth-like for years as a side project, but when they made the jump to early access they collapsed.) The other one is the Subnautica sequel, which I am not worried about because the original was also early access. (Also, I got the original for free and they deserved some money from me.)

One thing I don't like about early access: even if you only buy the finished game, there can be lots of outdated information on the internet if you need to google something.

I'm not going to write it off yet. I'll have a look once its actually done.

The complaints about it not being true to Forgotten Realms, or making the characters "too unique" (I'm paraphrasing, not quoting) are slightly concerning, but are not deal-breakers to me. I'm not a purist, nor am I an expert on that universe.

I do want it to "feel like D&D" (don't ask me to define what that means) and I'd like it to progress naturally, feel fair, and not feel like a slog to level up characters just to get them ready for the next chapter.

Or are you an understood genius?

It says you can type but there's nowhere to type?

I picked a random spot in the video to get a sampling, and there happened to be a nasty white supremacist message scrolling by. Just bad luck I'm sure, but I'm too pissed off to bother figuring out what's supposed to be going on.

The period-appropriate music is great though.
