Just fine going to an isometric design. More content is preferable to most of us here, I would say. And not taking 5+ more years is a good bonus. ;-)

I was def looking forward to seeing your vision as a 3d game but can understand the issues for sure. Either way its gonna be a great game i am sure.

I am excited at the idea of converting TRC over to an isometric engine.
Hooray! This is fantastic news! I love 2D isometric games - they usually look so much better than 3D ones; neat, tidy and detailed. Personally, I would have preferred TRC to be done as 2D-Iso regardless of the practical/technical considerations. In a world where 99% of games are 3D it's great that small studios like Basilisk Games dare to be different! Eschalon Books I-III are among the best looking games I've ever played, very atmospheric and immersive - though IMO the price for finest 2D-Iso RGP has to go to Divine Divinity:

I'd love to see a screenshot of that high-def isometric with Eschalon's textures, just so I have some eye candy to drool over. :)

Unfortunately I don't have that running anymore (guess I should have grabbed a screenshot). But do you guys want to see what the game used to look like when it was in 3D? Here's a shot from a small area I was working on. Sadly, this version of TRC will never see the light of day, but hopefully the isometric version will be just as cool.

Nice!!!

I love isometric, though, so I think it will still look cool.

You could still use the 3D version to generate images, which you could use as still or video backgrounds for title screens, menus, cut scene dialogues, etc., as well as promotional graphics.

That is a damn sweet screenshot of what TRC might have been.

But I do prefer isometric, so I'm cool with not ever getting to play this version.

I am intrigued by some of the images in that shot. The windmill, etc. Tantalizing.
