Did a search and didn’t come up with any posts on Battle Lord, coming to you from the team who brought you Space Rangers 2 (under the new banner of Katauri Interactive). Real-time overland adventuring with turn-based battles. If HOMM V disappoints, this could make for a fine alternative. Too bad it’s not coming out until 2007.
I love turn based games. this looks awesome.
Im guessing using octagons as the grid allows for 6 on 1 melee combat versus the usualy 4 (with square grids).
The only problem i see so far is that the levels look really flat with little elevation, which was also a problem in gladius and gets stale after a while.
Nice. The monster mash of game design that was Space Rangers 2 has got me all excited for this game, which I would probably be looking forward too even if I had never heard of the developers. The mix of HOMM & Diablo is A.O.K with me.
Not sure I like how Justin’s location is “Viral Marketing HQ”.
What could be mor fiendish than outright telling people you are an evil marketeer and hiding behind the truth?
Okay, back to game. I am not sure what a real-time overland map means. I assume it will have a pause so you can look at your quest journal, notes, etc. So it’s basically like SR2 without automatic pauses, and without an END TURN button.
Pausable real-time just means I hit SPACE BAR a whole lot.
