Like Gothic? Love Risen!

Posted in news, pc rpg games  on October 21st, 2009 by: ian

Well, Risen is finally out, and, according to the reviews, is looking like the next Gothic (but with a different world and without those annoying copyright issues!) As CrispyGamer says, ‘Risen is a solid game that religiously follows the design of the Gothic series. It would even be fair to say that the game is a wholesale rip-off of JoWooD’s RPG under another name. But who cares?’

Who cares indeed?  Like Gothic, combat is a killer and good luck surviving to the mid-game, but this is what a lot of people, including myself, want in a game – challenge!  Also have a look at the College News site for another great review, or look at the official blog itself, which also includes a link to the demo.

If you want, you get get Risen from Amazon Like Gothic? Love Risen!.  Finally, here is the trailer.  Enjoy!!!

More Risen goodies!

Posted in news, pc rpg games  on September 30th, 2009 by: ian

The first Risen previews are starting to roll in now. The first of these is at RockPaperShotgun and describes a brief play-through of an early version and Alec describes his thoughts of the game and also includes some YouTube making of clips.  The second is at PCGZine and describes a more in-depth play-through.

Overall it sounds quite promising – in a this is an early version of the game and still needs to be polished kind of way, so it’s definitely one that I’ll be keeping an eye on.  As a final goody you can find the manual for Risen here
