    Aleo, what a cool diagram. May we use this for something in the future?
    You did miss one button: There is an arrow at the top of the HUD to hide the whole thing.

    • a humanoid head (or a labor tool, e.g. plow, shovel) --> peasants
    • a humanoid head with a helm (or a weapon, e.g. axe, sword) --> fighters
    • a horned humanoid head (or just horns!) --> varl
    I feared there was too much info in too tight an area to handle it with art. The icons would have either had to be really, really small or I'd have to make more room for the info. We've planned for the game to be on some pretty small devices...

    Hey guys! Sorry been quiet on the forums lately! The music in this trailer IS from the final score, including the solo violin. That violin is the one and only string in the score, recorded separately from Dallas Wind Symphony (aka the huge orchestra of winds, brass and percussion). I will be revealing very soon WHO the violinist is

    There are also quite a few vocals in the score, none of which have been revealed yet

    -Austin

    I stand corrected

    The violin being the only string in the score should make the scene(s) where it plays quite memorable.

    I'm sure you'll come up with something prettier. But, the "ninth button" would break the eight-star pattern

    So, space is the essence I believe that the HUD could be of even larger width, since the top of the screen is usually open sky or tree-tops, from what we've seen so far. Besides, you always have the arrow to hide the whole thing to fully take in the visual splendor! Oh, I'm sure you've tried all variations and picked the best.

    From what I've seen of the banner saga interface, there's no reason why it couldn't be ported at a tablet or even a smartphone. King of Dragon Pass works well on iPad and iPhone.

    Indeed. The only thing that's kinda troublesome is the battle UI, with the little buttons, tile clicking etc. But, then again, I believe it's the limited timer that stresses things in Factions. For the Saga, where you'll have all the time in the world to decide, it shouldn't be a problem.

    That's most certainly the hope

    Yeah, no pressure, but I'm kinda waiting on pins and needles for it myself
