General game discussion

I didn't see a thread where we could just discuss random games, so correct me if I'm wrong.

I bought Ember a while back and have been enjoying it a great deal. It's a quite an interesting CRPG. It's designed as a tablet game, and the hints often give you instructions as a tablet way of doing things, even though it was first designed as a PC game. The UI including menu are all quite big as a result, and some of the combat is a bit fiddly, but thankfully there's an option to have it paused at critical moments, like when someone needs health for example.

    Huh... "Ember was inspired by the 1992 video game Ultima VII: The Black Gate". And seems to get compared to a budget Balder's Gate or Icewind Dale and the like.

    Thanks, you just cost me 10 bucks. :)

    Haha, yeah, it does get compared a lot to classic CRPGs, I've noticed. I'd also venture Planescape Torment a bit for the story. In terms of graphics, it resembles Torchlight more, but where Torchlight is more linear, this is more free-form. It's quite a decent effort, and for $10? Hell yeah! I'd love to see what else these devs have on offer. I'm enjoying this one quite a bit.
