I second this... I'm on the beta, and it is working for me in my system configuration. I haven't heard of serious bugs that aren't affecting the other platforms as well.

Hi, just dl'ed this game and really like it a lot. I love the visual style all the way around. Everything is beautiful and there is none of that "[squinting] what is that anyways?" syndrome that plagues a lot of rpg's. I also love the fact that everything you equip is reflected in the visual appearance of your character when you are playing and not just in the inventory screen. Equipping and comparing items is also very easy and visual and there is never any confusion about what I have equipped or what I am looking at. I don't normally play games that require real money to play. BUT, it looks like this is more of a "pay if you want to" system, which I don't mind at all. I am only level 4 so we will see if that changes.
I noticed that this is on Steam Early Access as well. So, my question this: Is there any difference? I realize that the cost on Steam gives you special items from the get go. But, is the game itself the same?

Finally, 2 small suggestions.
1) Being able to rotate the camera would be nice, even though I understand that you might not want to do that for processing reasons.
2) Your character only travels in a straight line to where you click, so if there is something in the way it just hangs. This is a minor issues, but it does make it hard to break free of surrounding enemies to go after one in particular (of course, if were easy it wouldn't be fun would it? ;) ). It also made it more difficult to move around in some areas. However, once I learned to run the cursor just a little in front of my character all the time, it made movement more seamless and eventually I didn't even think about it.

I will play more of this for sure.

The game itself is the same, yes. Just some bonus equipment there for paying.

Dull and uninteresting, this is just an uninspired Diablo-like slog that gives the player no incentive to play. The Feudal Japan aesthetic feels tacked-on. I played 45 minutes, decided it was boring, then uninstalled it. I've played several Diablo style games in the past, this was by far the worst one. As far as the plot, it was just "go take jobs to kill monsters over and over," with no indication that this would change since the town was pretty much just a game hub full of vendors. Also, having…
