My remarks are based on the non-Steam version of this game.
As a long time fan of the old school rpgs, I am very happy to see games from this developer arriving here at Steam. These are among the very best of this style, and this particular offering is no exception. It is outstanding and exceptional.
The story in these games is fundamentally important, and this one is masterfully done. It is intriguing and very captivating with very good humor as well. It takes only a little time to find yourself absorbed in this nicely detailed fable. Characters have good depth, and the plot development is well done.
Scenes in the game have a great deal of nice color, and there are tons of places ready for exploration. There is a handy and nicely done tutorial for those who might need it. This one will take a little time ---- with all there is to explore, secrets to discover, and quests to complete. And, now, with this next playthrough for me, 50 Steam Achievements! ---- it will be a virtually brand new experience for me.
So, if you are a fan of this type of game and have somehow missed out on the offerings from Aldorlea, do yourself a favor and try this one (or, really, any of the Aldorlea games now at Steam). You will not be disappointed.
