Is there a trial somewhere? I love RPG's but paying money without knowing anything about the actual game or developer firsthand..

It seems on the video you are having slight difficulty moving through the doors, isnt that a 360-degree movement stick?

Looks decent, but i'll get it if MFi controls get added. Seems like a fun game to play with the madcatz.
