He really went for an even more old-school graphic style here…

Indeed. Although the main drive for the Kickstarter seems to be funding to hire an artist, so I'm guessing this might just be placeholder graphics for now. But who knows?

Vogel's giving us a blog update on the game shortly, so I'll post that when it's up. (Funding is at 85% at the time of writing btw).

Icewind Dale is the only one (well, that and Dragonspear) I need to play. I've always been a bit hesitant because it's combat-centric and combat is not why I play these games.

It's certainly more linear than the Baldur's Gate series, but it's still a great RPG imho. But yes, it is combat heavy.

In some ways I consider it a better RPG as you get to roll your own party (i.e. more is left to the imagination). The atmosphere's great too; Jeremy Soule's music is outstanding.

Lastly, one of the games is really cheap now, for how long I don't know. I think one of the Baldur's Gate Games is only two bucks maybe? Well worth looking into this right now if you like these or think you would.

I love these games and have played the hell out of them for years. As an additional tidbit, the enhanced edition of IWD has recently been updated to v2.5 and now includes the shaman class, and and a few graphical tweaks. It's a 64-bit binary also.
