    Native 1024×768? It cant be! This is AD 2010 not 2000.

    Believe it, Gal! We also run the game in eye-popping 2D.

    Hooray, been looking forward to this since I finsihed Book I last year.

    I hope that Book II will get all the praises it deserves and give you enough financial security to make Book III the final masterpiece in the series.

    And you should seriously try to get some coverage. “Rock, Paper, Shotgun” for example springs to my mind as they often cover good indie games and can broaden your audience.

    Funny thing about 2010… most of your netbooks can only swing 1024×600…. I’ll have to get a more expensive one just to run Book II! 0_o

    Bring on the sexy smooth 2D!

    where’s that demo! get it out!

    I tried the Esch1 demo on my old laptop – ran fairly poorly – I was hoping Esch2 is more optimised.

    I loved what I saw though – great interface and general gameplay – congrats

    Can’t wait for Book II on May 12th for Windows users like myself!!! Everyone else gets it on the 26th, which is fair. Plus, I will download the demo the day it comes out. When I get a steady income, I’ll buy the game too to help you guys out, this time I’ll get the cross platform version on disc. What I’ll want after that is when after Book III comes out, then the Book I/II/III Multi-Binary disc! Hee hee! 😀

    Actually, on second thought, you guys don’t sell multi-binary copies of the Eschalon games, just individual platforms. 🙁 That’s ok, maybe it could be done in the future! 😛

    Ditto to what Tal Says. I just bought/played Book I on steam 2 days ago…I can’t put it down.
    I’m DEFINITELY buying Book II as soon as it arrives on Steam.
