Title: Bards Tale IV
Post by: Themadcow on July 08, 2015, 05:43:01 AM
Wow, it's been a long time since I posted here but I thought I'd pop on to raise awareness that the Bards Tale 4 kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inxile/the-bards-tale-iv) is almost finished, fully funded and slated for 2017 release.

Even though this is primarily a JRPG forum I thought I'd flag it up as BT, along with Wizardry, gave many people their first taste of dungeon crawling / blobbering and the likes of SMT and Etrian Odyssey may never have happened without the influence of the series. The original Bards Tale games (not the poor 'reboot' from 10 years ago) were very similar to Etrian Odyssey in both design and philosophy.

People who back the game will also get a bunch of other things thrown in for free so it's worth getting in now if you're interested.

Oh hey, it did it and got the only stretch goal I cared about. That's nice to know. Honestly, I didn't even hear about the Kickstarter until just now. Is Bard's Tale 1-3 on GoG?

EDIT: They are, but I have to get the cruddy reboot in order to play them...

EDIT 2: Wait, I have the cruddy reboot already! O_o
