Baked lights are fun to play with and it looks really good, You can do mostly anything with it.

The graphics aren't going to win awards; but at least they don't make me puke ala a certain other overrated game graphically.

This game looks to have most of what I'd want in a game. :wub:

What game would that be, Volo? :))

And apparently, I too, am a graphics whore.

New interview at NMA.

Ratty: Another interesting and novel skill is Disguise. How does it work, exactly?

Vince: It's a combination of looking like someone else (wearing certain clothes or displaying a certain ring) and knowing what to say (researching the background of such a person).

Let's say that you need to pass through a guarded gate. You chat with the guard and with the townsfolk, and if you have proper skills you may learn that a courier from another town is expected. Asking further and collecting gossips, you may find out more about the town the courier is from (if you haven't been there yet), about the reasons for the visit, about the faction he represents, etc. Then you make yourself look like a courier on an important business and boldly go in, weaving a web of bull**** and confusion. While you will use Persuasion and Charisma to collect the info, you will rely on Disguise to put it all together and act like someone else in a convincing manner, without sweating and giving anyone a reason to suspect you.

Sorry to gravedig, but I bear news and this seems to be the only AoD topic around here.

AoD - Choices & Consequences

I especially like the fact that there are 7 different ways to get to Antidas.

BTW. Looking through the posts here, cool to see how the game has progressed.

Back to the topic: is there anyone who disagrees with the absolute fact that this is going to be the bet RPG ever?


Yep. It will be mediocre at best. Drakensang will probably be better then it.

I never knew I was a graphics whore until I saw this:

It's not so much the graphics, this thing could use an art style. Stock models is not an art style...

You guys don't know what you're talking about, these are very old graphics, the new ones are much better, and art design is great. Go look at the website. Edit: Here's an example Attached File  For_your_eyes_only.jpg   74.9KB   49 downloads

Looks very good. And finally a game where I don't have to battle the stupid camera like in NWN2.

I hope this gets released on Steam.

Back to the topic: is there anyone who disagrees with the absolute fact that this is going to be the bet RPG ever?

Yes: me.

I question VD's ability to write, especially based on what he considers to be good writing. Reading the dialogue in the "choices and consequences" thread, what I see is uninspired quest design and puke-inducing infodump dialogues.

If it will be universally praised by the 'Codex as the new Fallout of this generation, i might give it a try.

Laugh does a body good.

Is the game ever actually coming out?

My money's on at least one complaint there that the camera's awful and there's too much bloom.

Nope still poor. Just not laugh worthy.

I think devs need to watermark screenies with dates. :x

It's a low budget indie game. The threshold should be "does the game hurt my eyes" for technical quality. And AOD no longer does.

If you want more... well, it doesn't make any sense.
