For someone who isnt really at all familiar with the original, sell me on this game! Is it deep? Lots of gameplay? Lot of replayability? Loot? Unlockables? What is this game all about? What genre?

Also I have to say, I am usually a guy who does care about graphics, I dont LIKE that I care, I just usually dont like pixely games, however I can overlook graphics to some degree based on good gameplay. Having said that, that isnt even an issue with me this time, I really like the art style of this game (at least based on the screenshots). REALLY like. =)

Congratulations on seeing that prokect through! It must have been at LEAST a decade ago I stumbled upon the project, probably longer, and, for as long as I had the bookmark in my webrowser, I would check on it from time to time. I thought it might be one of those projects forever in beta/late alpha status. I even remember signing up for your yahoo group dedicated to the project.


Well, guess I'll pick this up then .
Thanks ok. In truth, the midnight engine pretty much did die. I spent too long on it, not really focusing because of too many other commitments and Jure got bored. It was only the release of the iPhone that it got going again.

Skipped Karateka and Penny Arcade and buy this. No time to play it for now.

AFAIK, Bill Harris of Dubious Quality recommends this also.

Statement: Star Wars has 2 characters with strange use of grammar: Yoda and HK-47. I pick HK-47 for it is meaner.

Me too. Being not of the ZX generation, what is this? An adventure game? A war game? Choose your own adventure?
