Eon beat me to it :)

After two years of hard work we're finally ready to show a video about what we have been working on...

Please consider wishlisting the game on Steam and spreading the word :)

https://store.steampowered.com/app/9546 ... ir_Forest/

The game will have a level editor with WYSIWYG level editing and Lua scripting support as a post launch update. Can't wait to see what kind of crazy stuff you guys can accomplish with the editor!

Q about to the short 1st person scene at 0:24 to 0:26: is this a "possess creature" feature, similar to original Dungeon Keeper?

I don't like Steam, but I've added Druidstone to my wishlist :)
Can I see how many other people have wishlisted it?

I'm glad that Druidstone will have puzzles, like LoG2.
I stopped playing "Pillars of Eternity" because it was only combat.

Sorry if this has been asked before:
Will there be a non-Steam version?
Will there be a Linux version?

Who is composer for Druidstone?
Music reminded my on Bloodborne and Dark souls scores which were masterpieces.

Not quite. We highlight some important events on the battlefield with close-up camera shots. This brings a nice variety to the otherwise static top-down view.
Will there be a non-Steam version?
Very probably. Several people have asked for GOG and we don't see why not. Just haven't talked with the guys at GOG yet.
Will there be a Linux version?
We'll look into other platform after launch but I wouldn't hold my breath with Linux version. It would be ideal if we would make and maintain the Linux version ourselves, but it's a lot of extra work for a small team.
Who is composer for Druidstone?
All the music is composed by Scoring Helsinki, the same guys who made the amazing Grimrock 2 soundtrack.

Thanks to all for wishlisting! It seems wishlisting can have a big impact on the success of games. Strange days!

@Komag: thanks! :)

@eon: Thanks for the reference! Our top priority is to make the game as fun as possible to play. That said, graphical effects like in your example can make the game feel much more polished. Once we get past beta we can start concentrating on the graphics effect.
