There is an embryo of a good game here, and one day this game might actually turn out to be a worthwhile title, but as of right now (15th Jan 2014), it’s nowhere near a game worth anyone’s time.
There are several issues with this title, but the main one is its horrible optimization. Even with all the graphics settings set to low, and shadows turned off, I hardly ever get more than 5 fps. When there are NPCs on screen, the frame rate drops even further. Reports on the forum seem to indicate that this is not just a problem that people with weaker computers have, nor is it a few isolated incidents, the game just does not run properly, even on high end machines.
Then there are the bugs. During my short time in the game I managed to get stuck in a wall, I had a dialogue box open without anything in it and my character suddenly disappeared. Also, the voice acting is less than stellar, and the voice overs don’t always match the text on screen. It would have been better if they would have just gone with text and no voice overs.
Pathfinding is also problematic. The character will just run straight towards where the game has decided that you’ve clicked (which is not always where you actually clicked), and get stuck on anything that comes in his or her way. This gets rather frustrating, and it would have been nice if the character would at least have been able to navigate around smaller objects
Apart from that, there is not much I can say about this title, as just could not play it properly. Avoid it, at least until it has been fixed.
