History

Action RPG that comes out soon (the 25th). Apparently it's supposed to be humorous. Might be fun.

Thanks for posting about this little gem. Tried the demo but there are a lot of bugs with the game right now. Apparently the devs are very communicative, though. And they have already released a fairly large patch and apparently will be patching things almost daily until the bugs are fixed.

The demo crashes on start for me, but I read some fixes this morning that I'll give a try later. For those that are able to play the game multiplayer without crashes, they apparently love it.

Paradox Interactive is known for releasing their games in a rushed and substandard state. It'll probably take months and at least one expansion before the game gets to a point where most developers would normally have considered releasing it. Just look at HoI3 which still has significant bugs and problems over a year after it was released and the players are left hoping that the second expansion which was recently announced will bring the game to a solidly enjoyable state.
