Wot I Think – Din’s Curse: Demon War | Rock, Paper, Shotgun
"So, you’re a hero. A tall combine harvester of a man, with a unique knack for rolling forward and crushing and scything everything in your path, and you’re on a quest to rescue a lady, kill some monstrous boss monster and save a town. This tireless plot has been the set-up for a thousand fantasy videogames. Now, imagine if you could fail at all this. Imagine if the lady could die, the monstrous boss monster could beat a retreat, and the town relying on you could, ultimately, be laid to waste. Imagine if everything mattered. That’s Din’s Curse." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
I played the demo. Neat ideas in this game. - Amit Patel
Damn you! I stayed up way too late last night playing this. - Joe Beda from iPhone
I played the demo for a while but then my town got invaded and my NPCs died, and I didn't know how to recover. That's when I quit. Then I played Mount & Blade: Warband (demo), and within minutes of starting I was taken prisoner, I lost all my stuff, I lost my horse, and I failed the initial quest. I didn't know how to recover. That's when I quit. I then played Hinterland the rest of the day. My town got invaded and several of my NPCs died, but I the game helped me recover, so I kept playing until bedtime. - Amit Patel
I really like the open world games but when things go wrong and I don't know how to recover, I tend to give up. It happened to me in Dwarf Fortress as well … I had built a magnificent fortress, with irrigation, underground farms, etc., and then an army invaded and my dwarfs went mad, and I didn't know how to recover. I should try that game again. - Amit Patel
With Din's Curse it seems the NPCs will come back slowly as you complete quests. There is an option to disable town invasions at an xp penalty too. I do like that you can finish a town and move your character on to the next. - Joe Beda from iPhone
