The Bard’s Tale In-Engine Video

Posted by Rampant Coyote on June 4, 2015

The InXile folks released the in-engine video today for The Bard’s Tale IV. Okay. It’s only an in-engine demo. Not actual gameplay. More of a stake in the ground for what they want the experience to be like. I keep telling myself that.

Dang. To have a budget and a bunch of brilliant artists able to realize something like this. This is what I’ve always envisioned a dungeon crawl to look like, even when staring at 320 x 200 x 16 color display with only the outlines of walls. Or when sitting around at the kitchen table slinging dice.

You can check out their Kickstarter page here, if you are interested. Or simply put it your list of games to watch out for in the not-too-distant future. It’s clear they are going to make their goal. And, as an important note, they’ve also made it clear they are matching the first 1.25 million with their own investment (meaning: The crowd-funded money will NOT represent their entire budget).

I hope they pull it off.
