Back to the topic - anyone played the beta? How rough/polished is it? Is there anything worthy of attention in the game?
I've put 45 hours into it already, been fun. Sure it needs some work, but then you can build castles on your private server at a level of depth that i've never experienced before in a game.
I saw this on steam the other day, I'm following it's progress but I make a habit of not buying unfinished games unless I know the developer is very reliable.
I agree with you 90% of the time. For me, this is that 10% that is both worth it and not a hype gimmick. They are using funds to make their MMO world that will be 7x the size. They have the ground work on the game implemented and are releasing each aspect of the game as it gets released. The design itself seems to have actual innovative brain(s) behind it, not caught up in industry "norms".
The game as it stands, assuming that all the skills will be implemented, when put into mmo form, even now, would be worth the 40 bucks, in my opinion.
But then, if you want to wait, i'll be having fun without you.
