Minor TBS Update

Hello All

Apologies on the delay with this info but we recently had a small update for Banner Saga.

  • Fixed recurring issue that sometimes caused the 'Continue' button to be unresponsive after a battle
  • Added new heraldry crests
  • Fixed some minor memory leaks

Nothing too crazy, but we found some memory things in TBS2 that we could easily bring back to TBS1 so we thought we should.

Recensies

“Game of Thrones Meets Vikings Meets Disney. The Banner Saga is blindingly lovely and arguably just as intriguing to play. Built atop a world that all but demands the attention of travel documentaries, it's epic in the literal sense of the word.”
100% – US Gamer

“With a refreshingly unique aesthetic, well-written story, and challenging gameplay, The Banner Saga is an excellent adventure well worth your time.”
90% – Games Radar

“The Banner Saga deserves commendation for the strength of its art and music experience alone, which shatters conventions.”
86% – IGN

Coming to SteamOS/Linux

The Banner Saga will be available on SteamOS and Linux in March 2015.

Luxe digitale editie

The Deluxe Edition – Combines The Banner Saga with the official soundtrack which includes 29 tracks by Grammy nominated, and two time BAFTA Award winning, composer Austin Wintory, performed by the Dallas Winds orchestra plus a powerhouse trio of acclaimed YouTube sensations: vocalists Peter Hollens and Malukah and violinist Taylor Davis.

Over dit spel

Live through an epic role-playing Viking saga where your strategic choices directly affect your personal journey. Make allies as you travel with your caravan across this stunning yet harsh landscape. Carefully choose those who will help fight a new threat that jeopardizes an entire civilization. Every decision you make in travel, conversation and combat has a meaningful effect on the outcome as your story unfolds. Not everyone will survive, but they will be remembered.

Key Features

  • Player choice that drives your own narrative – every decision you make in travel, conversation and combat has a meaningful effect on the outcome as your story unfolds.
  • Over 25 playable characters from 2 different races, human and varl, the horned giants – embark on your epic journey with a variety of characters from 7 different classes, each with unique abilities and upgrade options to fit your play style.
  • Strategic combat with consequences - victory or defeat and even the permanent loss of a character depends on which characters you choose to take into battle and what decisions you make afterwards.
  • The journey is as important as battle – your role in building and managing your caravan as you travel the vast frozen landscape is critical to not only your own survival but the survival of an entire civilization.
  • An epic Viking saga brought to life in 2D glory – beautifully hand drawn combat sequences and animations, accompanied by an evocative score from Grammy-nominated composer Austin Wintory, will immerse you into a fantasy realm inspired by Norse mythology.
  • Multiplayer Combat Enhanced – sharpen your combat skills in the free multiplayer game “Factions”. Compete against other players with many of the character classes you see in The Banner Saga.

Dit is echt een super leuk spel. Vooarl de vele keuzes die je onderweg moet maken zijn echt leuk en je merkt dat je soms hard moet zijn om te overleven. De graphics zijn echt mooi. Verhaal is goed, alleen jammer dat niet alle teksten gesproken zijn.

Kort maar krachtig. Vikings, gehoornde reuzen en stenen mannen.
Turnbased vechten en simpel rpg level-up systeem. Vooral leuk
door het verhaal en gebeurtenissen waarop je kan reageren. Je
moet het er dan wel voor over hebben om dat verhaal te lezen, want
er wordt weinig gebruik gemaakt van gesproken tekst. Geweldige art
style en minimalistisch gebruik van geluid. Een must buy voor iedereen
die van verhaal en sfeer houden en die voor een leuke ervaring gaan.

I did somewhat liked the game, but it is not worth your 23 euro's.
First of all, it is quite random, in my opinion, if a character survives or not. When a character dies that I just invested a lot of resources in, without the feeling that I could have prevented it, that is quite frustrating. Yes, character die outside of battle in events where your choices can save or kill someone.

Second, the gameplay/ battles. The banner saga uses a battle system like in final fantasy tactics advance, or fire emblem. Except that in the banner saga, it just doesn't work because it lacks an RPG element. For example, in most games characters have weaknesses and strenghts. A mage has a low defense and attack but can easily damage enemy's with a high defense because those have in general a weakness against magic. A thief will have a higher chance to dodge attacks and so on. The Banner Saga does not have this variety of characters.

Also, when a character gets hit, it loses attack power. Health and attack is the same stat. It isn't possible to heal in battle. Your own characters can block an ally from moving around the field an there are more of these minor things that in my opinion don't make this a very satisfying game to play.

It is not all bad though. The graphics are great and the story is also good. But when people say this is an RPG, I would call them liars. Unless you consider chess an RPG.

Acaravan of men and giants crosses the land. These colorfully clothed warriors cut a striking silhouette against the bleak, frozen landscape. Snowflakes waft by and craggy mountains stretch across the horizon. These travelers seem so small, so insignificant, when viewed against the chilled backdrop. The caravan encounters a troop of thieves and must reach a decision: invite the thieves to join the roving party in the hopes they might bolster the defenses, or send them away out of fear, assuming they will steal precious supplies. In The Banner Saga, you face these kinds of decisions all through the game's 10-hour campaign, making choices, and then clenching your jaw and hoping your trust was properly placed. Sometimes it is, and sometimes it isn't. Sometimes, you feel in control of your destiny, and sometimes you feel like your destiny is at the whim of the elements.

Making decisions with unclear consequences is The Banner Saga's main thrust. You spend most of your time watching several expeditions of men and giants cross the frigid Scandinavian landscape and rest in the villages and encampments they encounter. The automated journey is interrupted frequently with events that require your input. A woman has been murdered, and her mother blames another traveler. Do you support the accuser, do you support the accused, or do you dig deeper into the conflict? An obnoxious general questions your leadership and threatens to run off into the wilderness with his own men. Do you argue for him to stay? Do you send him away, thinking that perhaps he might return and grovel for mercy later? You can't presume anything. Kindness can lead to disaster. Harshness can lead to triumph. All you can do is follow your instincts, apply some logical reasoning, and hope for the best
