    Question King of Dragon pass spiritual successor?

    Hello everyone,

    First of, let me thank Gamespot.com for actually giving information about a game that might hold promise to be both fun and challenging to play.

    Now, to the topic at hand - a long, long time ago I played a game named King of Dragon pass that was also quite influenced by Norse mythology. It had various deities, which had temples and shrines you could erect in your small village. It had a council of elders which you could appoint yourself among a pool of available people. The most important aspect was that it was heavily story-driven and yet at the same time - quite non-linear in how you play it.

    Do you plan some kind of that level of interaction with your town/village in the game? Not to mention with the gods and doing rituals and quests that might or might not appease them?


    That game was just too good to pass on and you actually had to think in advance to draw your strategy for the next couple of turns. Naturally, it did not have any tactical gamescape because of the heavy focus on story.

    Great questions, thanks. We've mentioned a few times that The Banner Saga will be a bit like a traveling version of the King of Dragon Pass. Picture a moving town, i.e. a caravan, moving through a landscape while you're making decisions about your clan. You don't control everyone in your caravan, they each have their own agendas, hopes and fears and it's up to you to take them through this dark time with wise council and, when needed, bold action.

    Concerning such things as rituals to gods, remember that during the time period the game takes place the gods are dead. Everyone knows this. A version of "Ragnarok" has already taken place and your grandfathers were there to see it. They saw the gods die. Now mankind is on its own and a great shift is taking place once again on the earth...is this mans time to be destroyed? How will you respond when the fate of an entire clan is on your shoulders with death nipping at your heels?

    Hmm. I've had King of Dragon Pass on my gog.com wishlist since they released it there. Maybe I should finally bite the bullet and just buy it? It's only six bucks I believe.

    I believe I'll do that too. Gotta play something to kill my thirst to story untill TBS single player is released!

    About TBS - yes, it has so much potential, and after you play factions you are sure those guys are extremely talented, so there's no reason to turn down hype to avoid the usual disappointment - it's just a matter of time till something amazing emerges

    Banner by StandSure - thanks a lot!
