I downloaded the DEMO today. I heard it's a good game from many sources and had to see for myself. Aside from the water and the light effects in fights, you won't notice that this game was made with unreal engine.
Anyway, so I tried out 2 different characters. The first one was a happy, undecisive trader, who witnessed how some pirates robbed an old man in the local port town. So she goes ahead and gets that stuff back. After that I wasn't really impressed tbh. But that came from getting the wrong skill (instead of a multihit or summon ability I got a "rest" ability, which was overwhelmingly aweful.)
Anyway I started all over, this time with a dancer. Her story is a lot darker. Her father was killed when she was young and she made it her task to get revenge on the cult who did it. She ends up in slavery, is picked on all day long by the other slaves and the only other dancer slave who is kind to her gets killed half an hour into the game.
I have to mention though that each character has a specific ability to use on NPC's. For example, the trader can simply trade with any NPC and get specific items from them only. The dancer however has the ability to seduce someone else. So, as a female dancer I went ahead and seduced an old lady
. She kept following me even to the places out of town where monsters are waiting. Then I got into my first fight, and suddenly saw the option to summon the person that follows me into my fight. This is when I chuckled the first time. But it got even better. The enemy tried attacking me, but instead of hittin me that old lady jumped in front of me and got hit. That old lesbian protected me well! xD
Then I continued to the first mini boss and I thought I was doomed. All of a sudden it was 1vs3 whereas before I only ever fought 1vs1 (with that old hag 2vs1 but still..) So I summoned that old lady again in high hopes she deems herself useful. Indeed she did. All of a sudden she throws some AoE multihitting ability and causes like 200 damage to every enemy (my usual attacks: ~40 damage) and I was like: What the fuck? What kind of old bull dyke did I seduce? And I chuckled aagin. Gotta buy this game. Fun stuff will happen.
