You probably also afraid of the boogie man or what?


It would be foolish not to learn from past experiences.

And it's not like nightlights are expensive.

I got the black screen on the demo too, and post processing fixed it, but it never crashed on me. But yeah, I wouldn't buy it yet with that kind of experience.

I finally tried the demo, very buggy overall. I also think it's another one of the made for console games that simply got shoved off to PC in hopes to make a few more bucks but without spending tons of effort.

The game actually seems intriguing though from the Demo...sort of has almost a Planescape vibe at parts.

Kind of....Can't really say anything on the plot without giving something away.

I think the enjoyment comes down to two things.

1. Do you like the combat system
2. Do you like brighlty coloured worlds over the shades of brown.

There are a lot of side quests and they don't really add anything (besides money/items xp). The exceptions are the faction quests which have interesting stories behind them and are also very well done.There are exceptions though one of which rewards you with a house quite early on whjich is nice to have. But there are other ways to get a house so it's not essential.

I'd say your looking at a 15-20 "investment" hours before everything starts to come together. That's why I highlighted those 2 key points.

I've been playing it since last friday on and off. I've gave up doing every side quest (as I had to a certain point) now I just do the ones my character likes the look of. That means I'm making more plot progress and more faction quest progress , which I think is where the real fun is.

It's really not a fault of KOA I think the same is true of all sandbox games.

If you play a mage "Meteor" will make you go Muuhaawhaa whenever you use it. It's totally over the top and makes the 70 points getting there totally worth it.
