    Most of the guys behind Grimrock have been working on a new game called Druidstone under a new company. Looks like an isometric, party based, tactical RPG. Pretty cool looking. Been in development since last fall but went full development mode this past spring.

    Looks good not a fan of those Grids though because Divinity Original Sin doesn't have them.

    Very interesting. LoG 1/2 were beyond awesome so I think I might have to keep an eye on this

    I don't think it's going to be real time combat like you can do in DoS/BG/PoE, etc. Thus the grid.

    There was a really cool looking hex-grid based D&D game several years ago called Chaos Chronicles that was coming out. Got canned but maybe this will make up for that in some way (Druidstone is not D&D though).

    I came in here almost expecting a complaint about Hearthstone and the state of the meta.... guess I'm in the wrong spot!

    It's turn-based combat. The movement speed could be instantaneous (a setting I've seen before) and it wouldn't effect gameplay at all.

    No real reviews just short clips of people doing the start of the game I wonder how large the characters would look on my 24" gaming monitor.

    Update: bought the game it's 749 meg download

    I refunded game is too kiddy like it doesn't have that serious tone that even Divinity has.
    Also had problems with menus in different rezes....
