[RPS] Isles Of Thunder: Battle Worlds – Kronos

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Quote:
KING Art Games wrote the Walker-approved adventure Book of Unwritten Tales but they believe that pointing and clicking can be used for more than puzzles and conversation. There’s another genre close to their hearts and that’s where Battle Worlds: Kronos enters:

The time wasn’t right for a resurrection of classic turn-based strategy, but now we believe the world is ready.

Having watched the Kickstarter video, I do believe I am ready and you may find that you are too.

Source

This game looks fantastic and it is pre-alpha. I love turned based games and here is a chance for us to get the game for cheaper than the retail price and have a say in the development. I think this one is going to be a real gem. thumb.gif

Because pre alpha basically means technical demo. An alpha is product in development and as you may already know development time cost bukoo bucks, hence the KickStarter.

Heh, well what I meant was that I keep seeing all these great games in pre-alpha...but then on my near daily check of released games I am like, "Meh...I think I will just go re-install an old game"

I swear...it is like the good ones get their plug pulled or have seven year development times.

Uhhhhh yyeaaaahhhh. You been under a freaking rock man!? That's exactly the point. Big publisher ruin all the good games or pull the plug. Then every once in a while people from the the old game studios that made those old games you go install, get a hold of the legal rights and make kick starter because they be homeless if they tried to make the games them selves with out crowd funding.
