@Dragomier, most currencies in the world convert fairly easily, especially if Cloverbit are using paypal, so it doesn't matter whether you pay in Euroes, dollars, pounds, Yen, australian dollars or whatever, I've been buying things in Euroes and Dollars with British pounds for years and never had problems .
@Cloverbit, I've had a look at the page with nvda and google chrome and it works fine (I also signed up to the news letter), definitely intrigued by the mention of minigames. I also wonder if we might hear a demo of some combat to get an idea of how the situation works. What I am wondering currently is how things progress with respect to the echoe location system mentioned in the features list. The features list also seemed to indicate that the game, while not turn based would have different interfaces for combat and navigation like an rpg, which sounds since one of the major problems we've had in the design of a lot of audiogames is that they tend to default to a "hear and react" model where the player hears something and needs to react fast, rather than make judgement calls about a number of factors going on at once.
I also find the mentions of the story intresting, albeit it sounds like yet it sounds like one of those "oooh no my peasant village!" type of situations .
Really if I were the mayor of an isolated peasant village somewhere and we happened upon a mysterious amnesiac child or orphaned baby lost in the woods, or a pregnant woman came to the village just in time to have her baby and die, while dramatically leaving a mysterious locket/weapon/book/note to be given to said child when he/she (but usually he), were old enough, I think I'd have the child packed straight off to the nearest evil empire in the area with a polite letter explaining that yes, we had found the chosen one and here he was, so no need to send beastial hoard or try out that magnificent new weapon on us, thank you very much .
Oh, and if the child had sparkling eyes or a runic mark on it's forhead or a dramatic scar, i'd probably just pack up and leave town immediately .
Our souls with high music ringing; O men! It must ever be
That we dwell in our dreaming and singing, A little apart from ye. (Arthur O'Shaughnessy 1873.)
