Seeing how it's Christmas I thought I would give you guys a present in the form of a heads up on a really good old school type game.  I have been playing it for a few days now and can't put it down.  It's cheap atm, give it a go, I think you will like it.

Followed it during it's greenlight days. Dunno what it was that made me ignore it until now.

Definetly seems good though.

I almost backed this game on kickstarter, but I was unsure if they could pull it off. Based on the steam reviews, it seems like it is a decent and lengthy RPG. However, people have reported that the game is a bit repetitive and also that the combat system boils down to who has the highest speed stat (similar to the initiative problem in Fallen Enchantress, I guess). 

It seems like its worth checking out, but it may not be as engaging as some of the other choices such as Divinity: Original Sin.

 I bought it during the sale. Mixed feelings so far. Lack of proper manual hurts the enjoyment of the game.

I picked it up over the weekend and have been enjoying it.  There are some progression/balance issues, much like the speed stat already mentioned, an herbs issue (it is better to not pull herbs until you skill is L30), and some class progression/balance issues.    The story is fairly straightforward and basic thus far, and the voice acting is passable, but even still I find myself pushing forward.  If you enjoyed combat in the early CRPGs, like the Wizardry series, then you'll probably enjoy this.

If you are playing, don't underestimate the power of Blessings.  They can make a difference in a difficult fight.

I also bought a couple of other games, and I havent tried this game more than 5 minutes yet. Rebuild 3 got my attention. Though still in early access, it got me totally hooked last night. Highly recommended.

Quoting joasoze,

That's exactly what happen'd to me.  I got hooked.  What ever I might say for, or against the game, there is no doubt it has the ability to hook you and not let go.
