Without looking into this game yet, is this related to the Kult: Heretic Kingdoms APRG from 10 years ago or so? That was a gem and I'd like to see a modern take on those ideas.

That was what I wondered, Flix. There was talk back in the day of a sequel, but that was some 10 years ago now, and only Diablo games take that long to gestate :)

Hey everybody,

 

this is indeed the sequel to Kult.
It also plays in the Heretic Kingdoms but it spans over a much larger area than Kult did. Kult played in Corwenth, which is merely a province of Shadows. The destruction of the Godslayer Sword, the events of Kult, caused the Dreamworld to errupt. The darkness of Shattered Heaven poured into the Dreamworld and turned it into the Shadow Realm.

 

If you have any questions or would like to hear more, I will gladly spill all the beans that I have ;)
Until then, feel free to check out the official website or the Facebook page of Shadows.

Have a great day!

Thanks for the info. It's very cool we'll get to return to the realms of Corwenth and beyond. I'm glad to see the Dreamworld returning as part of the gameplay. I really liked the Attunement system of leveling up in Kult so I'm sorry to see it go. But so long as something similarly inventive is used I suppose it won't be so bad. I just hope it's not just replaced with the bog-standard skill/stat points though. Despite being an ARPG with not the best combat in the world, the original had enough quirks and unique ideas to set it apart. Probably the best one was the interesting story with its varied dialogue choices, things usually sacrificed in ARPG's.

Steam has it listed as available Sept 29th.

Any ideas on how much of a mp player game this would be Augmint? I'm not sure I'm so into a huge sprawling Diablo 3 experience anymore...but something smaller arpg type with cool new story and quests is interesting.

:)
