This game kinda took me by surprise, I got it with one of Green Man Gamings 20% off codes and I found a game that actually requires you to input combos to do specific attacks and the like, it's quite fun and amusing, with a deal of variety between quests, pick it up if you like action rpgs and are wanting something different than the simple point and click or button mashing!

This is an interesting mix of tactical and action rpg in a somewhat isometric view. Playing as a mage is very funny primarly because of the multitude of skills; unfortunately you only 2 main schools of magic to chose from (Blood = Melee, Soul = Ranged) with Summoning as a small addition.
There a multiple puzzles troughout the game (and not easy ones), there is always a glimpse of sarcasm in the air mostly due to the npcs and how they talk, the ambient music is very nice and adds to the warm atmosphere.
There are some downsides too like the small inventory, combat can become repetitive or some quests can make you walk back alot (since there isnt a teleport thing)
Overall a nice rpg by an indie studio.
