The review sounded very disattached, like you hadn't really gotten into the game.Squee wrote:I enjoyed it well enough, then reviewed it down the middle of the road.

tungprc wrote:Still, you have a handful of people here who think this game should be given a 10 just because it's an indie. Sorry, there are no free passes.
This is true, of course. What I had in my mind was another post of you somewhere where you said that you reloaded when you didn't like the content of a chest. Then reloading in hardcore wouldn't help.tungprc wrote:Challenges are still silly in my book. Say I kill an NPC on hardcore and fail the priest challenge; reload and I'm still good to go. Same with bashing a chest, or failing a trap. All are fixed with the reload mechanic.

Soon Actually, today is the day on which I will finally submit my PhD ... I took a break from applying the finishing touches to check this forum
The review is already partially written and I have lots of screens ready. I have to check a few things with my mage character, though.
OK, back to work Thanks for the kind words regarding my review of Book I.

I'm not allowed to show you the rest of the text but here's the first draft page that was sent to me today. Basilisk should prepare for a boost in sales next month.
