Yesterday I noted how cool the game FTL looked. Today I am enthralled with this trailer for The Banner Saga, a turn-based strategy RPG from Stoic. This will be Stoic’s first game, but it’s composed of three, you guessed it, ex-Bioware veterans of The Old Republic. There needs to be a drinking game for every time an ex-Bioware employee starts up a new indy project. And since this is three ex-Bioware employees, that means three shots. I love these guys already.
Furthering my budding alcoholism aside, you’ve got my attention when you describe your game like this:
Short answer: role-playing meets turn-based strategy, wrapped into an adventure mini-series about vikings.
Travel through stunning landscapes straight out of an animated film as your party escapes what could be the end of everything. Battle painstakingly hand-animated foes in strategic, turn-based combat. Make decisions with real consequences in conversations with people you’ll actually care about.
The Banner Saga is a mature game aimed at gamers who appreciate art, story and strategy. Hope you’ll join the caravan.
Hey! I appreciate art, story, and strategy! This must be for me! And it’s for you too. You wouldn’t be at No High Scores if it weren’t, so do yourself a solid and keep an eye on this one.Enjoy this? Share it so others can too!
