This game is fun , a little hard at some times but fun. This game is like if Demon Souls and Gothic had a baby and they get this. Best part is the custom crafting.

We're not at the stage where a demo is feasible right now, but we're expanding a rather large multiplayer beta test every day, so come by and snatch a key next time we open up for more testers!
