Wow, already, and they said that the game had only a bit of bugs that weren't game breaking anyway. Someone *cough*nival*cough* could learn from this.
Infiltrator out.

Wait a minute we aren't being negative enough...how could they release this buggy unfinished piece of *** that needs immediate patching...why didn't they finish it? They are cheating diehard fans out of money because they know they will buy it...so they can finance other projects...

Add-on is also going to introduce a powerful map editor. From what I read, the game is extremely moddable.



RPG games usually have much more texts than Heroes games have.

Here's what is said on 1C forum about release date: "The only website, where you can find the real info on release dates is the Official Website and Forum of 1C Company.

And the official publisher of the game in North America - Atari."



People, you are misunderstanding what Katauri is. It is a *small* company! Their resources are quite limited. And they don't have any other projects running at the moment. As for quality, there may be lack of testing, but we can expect really good quality. That's because they don't use bad programmers to do simple tasks as some big companies do. It's oppposite - less programmers, but better programming level.
My patches: MM6 MM7 MM8. MMExtension. Tools. Also, I love Knytt Stories and Knytt Underground. I'm also known as sergroj.

Wow, you just got 10 on "being an ignorant idiot" scale. You called a game you even didnt play "buggy unfinished piece of ***", because devs released a patch so soon ? Thats just dumb..

Any complex game has bugs / not ideal balance or other issues. After devs give master disk to publisher, 3 or more weeks would pass before game would be actualy released. Why should not they spend this time searching for any issues that would be found anyway sooner or later ?

I've been playing this game for 5 days already - its amazing. And there were NO major bugs even untill I patched it.

ps: Blizzard were releasing patches for Starcraft for 10 years. Does this mean that game at 1.0 was "buggy unfinished piece of ***" ?

Yeah, but with the way gamers whine about everything, one could've taken it seriously.

I thought this part shows the sarcasm.

How is the real-time part? The original was turn based all the way through.

I was worried about this change, but it worked out ok. Its probably even more fun to distract or fool guards in real time. Also it alowed to give these wandering guards different speed. For example Archmages party has almost no chances to catch you, but Beholder party is almost as quick as you are, so you better not to walk close to them unless you're ready for fight.

Also you can pause game with space button at any time.

@GrayFace. No relation to GrayFiend, from the UFO:ET community?



Btw: isn't it funny how almost always people who leap to call others "ignorant dumb retards etc" are usually the ones who can't muster enough brainpower to detect simple sarcasm?

What's the point of taking a shot at Mistweaver? I thought the issue was over, he just missed something.

I'm grateful he provided info.

So do you think the game could work as multiplayer?
