Alpha – Early Access Game
The game will become available for everyone Steam as an Early Access game soon (this month from what I’ve heard).
Overall, for an alpha this game really looks awesome. Yea, admittedly, they have a lot of work to do on the animations. The fights are somewhat slow, which allows for tactical gameplay where skills matters more than having uber equipment or levels (which is a big plus). The animations may look a little unnatural, but I am sure they will work on this throughout the next months until the game will be released later this year.
Very cool CGI trailer:
If you want to see actual gameplay – as mentioned, still early in development:
How Can I Support This Game?
Head over to skarathebladeremains.com/pledge/ to get early access to the alpha and support the development.
The Kickstarter campaign ended already, so it looks like there is no other way to get the goodies. Possible that they will print more of the books and artbooks for release, but the limited goodies were most likely reserved for early backers. Still a possibility that they will do another Kickstarter campaign due to the limited exposure the game had (many RPG fans were barely aware of it)
