It feels strange to reccomend a game that isn't even finished yet, but from what i've seen so far this game is definately worth the cost.
Set in a dark, sci-fi setting this isometric RPG heralds back to the times of the original Fallout
and X-Com UFO
games. It has a detailed and lovingly thought out game environment, crafting and combat system and most of all a great story backed up by memorable characters.
You have quite a bit of freedom in this game too - the introduction of the "oddity" leveling system is unique and tries (quite successfully) to allow the player to choose a "non-combat" approach to the game.
However, from playing through the available content thus far I have to say that the oddities are normally guarded by some enemy or even on their bodies. This kind of defeats the object of attempting to bypass combat as a means to level as you will normally have to fight to get the oddities in the first place. But the great thing about this game is that it gives you the choice whether to use that system or a more traditional, XP based system.
When creating a character, the developer has made it possible and plausible to pick certain playstyles, adding to the replayability and allowing you to play the game in a number of interesting and challenging ways. The game is difficult but then I think this kind of game should be challenging.
Freedom definately is the plus of this game, you can pretty much do whatever you want, even if that means doing something suicidal - the point is the game lets you. I think this is a very important feature for any RPG. Also there is no "morality" system - the game niether rewards, nor punishes your actions, although some people may not take kindly to your actions - this is all fine and believeable.
As it stands - i reccomend this game. Try to think of this as a positive preview rather than a review. I may very well write a separate or updated version once the game is actually finished (whenever that might be).
