When the game first came out? I take it you haven't been checking out the forums lately. People are still tricking themselves into thinking that it's a Banner Saga clone, bare in mind that it's only people who have never played the game. It probably started as a cncept of a clone, then sprouted as something far different. This is nothing new in the games industry.
Let's be fair, they're not tricking themselves that much. The game looks like The Banner Saga, sounds like The Banner Saga and it certainly plays like The Banner Saga. The combat is more fun and gaining experience isn't as annoying.
Of course it tells a different story in a different way and branches about much more than TBS. That seperates it obviously, but you still could move any assets between the two games without anyone batting an eyelash.
I enjoyed Ash from Gods, don't misunderstand me, but they're like non-identical twins. Seperate yet very similar.
