Black Sigil: Blade of the Exiled for Nintendo DS (CT Style RPG)

Recommended Posts

Wow, it looks really good... looks a lot like CT / SD2 feel.

I wonder if they can really produce it with so few staffs though.

Easily. Given enough time and assuming he people involved work well together, a game can be put together with as little as 3 people (assuming no one has overlapping skill sets): an artist, a musician/sound person, and a programmer. I've coded the better part of a 2D RPG engine on my own in about a year, and that was as a beginning programmer; I could do it faster now (or at least, produce better, more reusable code that would fit better with whatever tools the level designer needed).

As a one-person project, RPGs are tough to do, but for that kind of project, they have more than enough staff.

I'm really looking forward to it. I'm not one to buy software without seeing a review first unless it's pretty much guaranteed to be awesome, such as Phantom Hourglass, but I will be waiting for it to come out and will likely be buying it soon after its release.

Well Aren't I glad and surprised to see the company is actually from My nick of the world. I'll sure as hell buy it then! Gotta support local game producers.

Bump!

Looks like this game got delayed until Q2, which is almost here, but still. They also gave it a new name: Black Sigil: Blade of the Exiled.

Am I the only one who thinks it should be "Blade of the Exile" (not "Exiled")?

There's nothing grammatically incorrect about "Blade of the Exiled."

The whole Chrono Trigger DS thing reminded me of this. Their site says it's in beta testing now, but I have to wonder how the real Chrono Trigger's re-release will effect sales of this game, since most of its buzz was always about how it was like Chrono Trigger.

"Effect" as in "Chrono Trigger will 'directly cause' sales of BotE"?

or "Affect" as in "Chrono Trigger will 'indirectly increase/decrease' sales of BotE (due to stylistic similarities)"?

How much looooooooooonger? I really want to get this game, but hearing nothing for so long makes me think either it's dead or already been released somewhere in a limited quanitity and I'll never, ever get it.

Owned. I usually am pretty good about effecting the correct form of that verb, too. :(

Screw nostalgia. CT and SD3 were awesome games and it a travesty that there weren't more games like them. It seems like every RPG today just wants to beat off to FF7.
