Kingdom Come: Deliverance


#81

They almost look like they are…Czechs! :)


#82

Oh and here is a talk Dan Vavra had at Reboot Develop, this one about writing/quest design, showing their screenwriting tool and stuff like that. At the end there is some brutal honesty about how hard this thing is to make :)

Btw Patrice Desilets showed interest in Skald, apparently.


#83

Have they talked about the combat system? How does that star icon work?


#84

My intuition was that the star was showing some sort of vulnerability. I also noticed that it didn’t show up all the time, so I wonder if it’s based on some sort of combat proficiency - that would make sense.

So the skills level up with use. Does that mean we’ll all be bunny-hopping around to level up our jump skills (ala Morrowind)? Or will we be able to pay a trainer and jump rope for 10 minutes to level it up? Can’t wait to find out!


#85

This is a video showcasing and discussing the combat system in good detail:

The star works as selector where you want to strike/defend, you can feint attacks with it as well.


#86

Quite a while since latest update, here is a new one about the status of the project going in a lot of detail:


#87

This game is still coming this year, right?
Haven’t followed the development though it looked interesting when I saw the kickstarter. Had almost forgotten about it though, so just wondering what the current status is. Based on the december video I guess “polish, polish, polish”? Have they announced a release date yet?


#88

They are still working hard on it, they will be at E3, I guess release date might be announced there.
Latest updates were about cutscenes/actors/characters



#89

Okay, if they’ve got Brian Blessed, then I’m definitely in.


#90

Thanks for the update!


#91

I thought that was the lead designer (who also has a sizable beard) after years of accumulated stress.


#92

Something being teased

Probably a release date.


#93

I always enjoy announcement announcements.


#94

They don’t often come in form of such nice teasers with in engine footage though.


#95

Snark aside, it did actually look very good. This is one of the few upcoming games I’m really looking forward to.


#96

Hopefully the gameplay matches the graphics. Such a beautiful looking game. I want to immerse myself in that world.


#97

Is this a mount and blade style of game?


#98

No, more a conventional RPG but in a realistic setting.


#99

Feb 2018.

This makes it look a little like a cheaper Witcher.


#100

I don’t know if that is an insult (cheap…) or a praise (Witcher 3 is, after all, the best game ever made), but it is actually most likely an accurate assesment - it will be storydriven open world RPG done on much smaller budget than Witcher 3 (around 10 million, compared to Witcher 3’s 40).

(actually I suspect I do know .p)
