Major Price Reduction on Eschalon Games

Posted by Rampant Coyote on February 24, 2012

If you were looking for an excuse to get the Eschalon games, this is it. Both games have been reduced in price by $10 … now at $9.95 and $14.95 for Eschalon: Book 1 and Eschalon: Book 2 respectively.

Get Eschalon: Book 1

Get Eschalon: Book 2

I haven’t changed the prices on the web pages yet to reflect the new prices yet, but if you click the “buy now” button, you’ll see the new price on the order form.

This is a great chance to get caught up on the series on the cheap in preparation for the upcoming release of Eschalon: Book 3.

The web pages explain things well enough, but here’s the nutshell: The Eschalon series are old-school style isometric-perspective RPGs. Turned-based everything, text window, rolling up a character, stats, non-linear storyline,  ‘n all that good stuff.  You do not need to have completed the first game to enjoy the second, but it’s a good place to start.  And since you can buy both games for the price of the former price of the second, now, why not grab both?

    I enjoyed the first one a lot. I hadn’t got around to Book 2 yet – my backlog has got so huge, Book 5 will be out by the time I catch up. Skyrim has been a huge timesink, and I still have a lot from the holiday sales I haven’t touched yet such as Deus Ex HR, Dead Island, Avadon, Dungeons of Dredmor, and also some little title called Frayed Knights I haven’t completed yet either ;)I guess a feast is better than a famine though.

    I am a sucker for a bargain priced game, and my tax refund is supposed to be deposited Monday, so I will probably go ahead and make the plunge, even if it is months before I get around to playing it. Thanks for the heads up on the price drop.

    Will the prices on Steam for the games also be dropping to $10/15 respectively?
    (Yes I’m one of those that are foolishly fond of having almost all their games collected in one client)

    The Eschalon series is amazing. The game mechanics are quite unbalanced, but in terms of atmosphere, pacing, story and music, it’s really hard to find any RPGs in recent times to match up to its caliber.

    It can also be quite an unforgiving game, which makes it even easier to love it <3

    And I’m still waiting for Thomas to release the collector’s ed for Book 1 🙁

    What will be the difference to the regular one?
    (I’m still waiting for the full trilogy anyway)
