It would be nice if we could pick up paper sheets and read on them various stuff. Maybe some quests could be introduced by such unconventional "quest givers" ? Or perhaps by inscriptions on a wall or on a tree trunk.

I think that would amplify the joy of exploring and observing the environment. Isn't a shame when developers take so much time to develop a nice environment and the player spends 95% of their time just looking (like a frog) for anything that moves so that he can whack it?

Also, love the Victorian suburb setting in the other screenie. With a lovely new punky deathlord kind of monster
Haha, I see what you're talking about, although it is just an illusion. While a wolf-head thing would be cool, it is just his gauntlets and side-view of his shield that are forming that shape.

Almost all of the spell effects are from enemies. I'm basically just getting totally pummeled there. It is actually rather hard to fire off a bunch of player skills and manage to hit the screenshot button fast enough to capture them in a way that looks good. For the Demolitionist and Occultist, that isn't too bad since their skills tend to have a longer duration. The soldier skills are very quick though, so it is hard to get good shots of them.

Whoa that's one heck of an explosion of colors in that last pic. I love the little details like the scattered papers on the ground in the second to last pic. Good stuff, keep it coming!

As usual, they look amazing. Love the fx and dark atmosphere in these. Also thnx for the bestiary update . I hope progress is going well...

Quick question; Do you have any 'dungeons' finished or planned? (Yes' i'm a dungeon crawler, not so much of an outdoors fan)

This make the wait even more painfull ^^.

ask nicely?

send a hundred emails to the devs asking for the pre alpha?

pray to the gods and hope they hear your prays

or pre order legendary edition and wait like the rest of us for the alpha release

An unique armor item with a wolf-head shape would be a really cool badass gear !

We still have to see some dungeon screens. I hope they'll be tough with powerful loots which cannot be found elsewhere.
Do you know now if the dungeons will be randomly generated ?
