Bard’s Tale IV AND Star Control: Origins both releasing next week?


#1354

In today’s dev journal, Brad talks about the game’s critters and how they’ve evolved over time. :)


#1355

when I was a kid, the response was always “yes, get out.”


#1356

Brad wrote a pre-mortem dev diary for Star Control: Origins. :)


#1357

So I played the first chapter, and it was fun! Can’t wait for the full game!


#1358

Combat holds up?


#1359

I’ve only had access to the earth ship, which I’ve never been a fan of, and this game captures why I’m not a fan of it, so…it does a good job so far?


#1360

Cool! Only two more days!!!


#1361

I think you can try out Fleet Battles in that build. I think. ? So you can see the other ships.


#1362

Ohhh, I’ve not tried that yet, I just did the story stuff so far. Good call!


#1363

fwiw, there are some really fun ships imho (and yes, the Earthling cruiser is the most boring, imho)


#1364

@Brad_Wardell what is the install size likely to be?


#1365

I’m not Brad, but the store page says 26GB.


#1366

Let’s hope it’s highly compressed and the download is a lot smaller than that! I just abandoned the idea of playing Bards Tale 4 because Steam tells me it’s going to take 40 hours to download the effing thing (23 Gb). My internet is just getting ridiculous these days.


#1367

It is roughly 26 gigs, at least the version I was able to download.
