The Council, an episodic RPG without combat


#12

Episode 2 was out this week.


#13

I did buy this, because I felt like this was worth supporting, but I’ve decided I’m going to wait until all the episodes are out to play through. I feel like it would work better that way.


#14

has anyone played this? I see it’s on sale for $18 (all episodes) on Xbox this week for Gold members. I didn’t have time to see how many episodes are currently out or what the remaining release schedule is.


#15

I bought it, but then decided to wait until all the episodes are out to start playing. If I remember correctly, I believe 2 (of 5) episodes are available now.

Edit: well, I’m just repeating what I wrote a month ago.

So what is going on with this game, Episode 3 was released in July and then the dev’s went all silent.

And apparently going my user comments on Steam, Episode 3 had a feeling of being rushed content.

Oh hey, episode 4 is out today!


#18

Well, at least one episodic game I bought is still getting released. I should probably play it.


#19

I would get this once complete. How many episodes are there supposed to be?


#20

Five, if they’re sticking to plan.


#21

Final episode is out!


#22

Well timed sale this week for Xbox Live Gold members. $20.09 instead of $30 for the complete season.

Are there reviews for the game up on any of the big sites yet?


#23

It’s 50% off or $15 in the US on Steam.


#24

Well I feel foolish, paid full price on release and still haven’t made time to play. Oh well.


#25

Again half off, anyone finish it and have opinions?


#26

I keep peeking at it, the reviews talking about how bad the last episode is have kept me from clicking it.


#27

Yep same here. :)


#28

Same. In fact, I removed it from my wish list.


#29

I already own it, just need to find time to play it. But now that it’s finished, I should make time for it soon.


#30

I’ve played it - it’s…the definition of an interesting 6-7/10 game. The dialogue RPG ideas in it are pretty great, the presentation is kinda low rent and the story takes a turn I really didn’t care for around the midpoint.

I just noticed this is on sale this week (for another 12 hours) for Xbox Live Gold members- $15 for the complete season. So I bit. I have no idea when I’ll get to it- Astroneer, Crackdown 3 later this week, etc.- but I’ve surprised myself in the past by just starting things when I don’t expect, so perhaps soon?
