Intrigued, but one of three things needs to happen for me to even consider it: a video, a lite, a price drop. Come to think of it, it could probably use all three regardless.

That it does too, but I think it's mostly the icon.

Well, according to the star system above, I've already rated this and given it five stars -- not sure how that happened. Anyway, bought this thinking that it would crap and that I would do a service to my TA folk and identify it as such.

Well, it's not crap. It's not perfect by any means, but the graphics have a nice early 2000's shareware feel to them (reminds me of Geneforge, actually, though not isometric). I've been playing as the necromancer, and her sprite is nicely animated (she even has a sway to her walk). The game world seems to be pretty big, and the one quest I've completed so far involved exploring a mansion and ended up in a giant spider boss fight.

The one big caveat so far is that the save system sucks -- it uses the old Diablo system of saving only at basecamp, which is simply a stupid idea in a portable platform.

Other than that, I'm pleasantly surprised.
