Legends of Dawn - Action & Adventure RPG (kickstarter)

Time for another Kickstarter and it's also a Dawn game. This one is called Legends of Dawn, a very high quality Action and Adventure RPG, from the developers Dreamatrix Game Studios.

Legends of Dawn invites players to the brutal northerly reaches of Narr. You will either live or die and that depends on you, your magic and your sword. What sets Legends of Dawn apart, is the freedom of play. The depth of the game will give you the choice of who you will play in the game as stated on the kickstarter page "the choice to be whatever your heart desires, in Legends of Dawn"

Although the game gives you the choice of how you play, this does not prevent you from doing something else later or at the same time. Unlike most games whereby you are stuck with a Mage and a staff. In this game you can combine the two of a Warrior type with sword in hand, and a Mage type with the power of spells at your finger tips.  Class, race and differences exist within the game but after choosing your own race and gender, all else can be altered without restarting the game.

Legends of Dawn has a lot of freedom, think of it as a Skyrim way of life, you don't have to follow the main story, you are free to wander where ever you feel like going in the game world. The only condition is, you must stay alive. They have been careful to ensure that the quests only suggest, rather than impose direction of movement. Your journey is in your hands alone.

Another great playability in this title, is the fact they have no loading screens. The only game I can think of that does this in a modern title, was Dungeon Siege, whereby going under ground means it's seamless between above ground and below. They've created their very own engine that discreetly streams content in the background, in real time. For example not just Dungeons but you are free to enter houses, caves, temples, new regions and so much more, without those pesky loading screens interrupting your playing pleasure.

The world in which you play according to the developers will be big! The world is going to be called Narr and the developers have mentioned that the world of Narr, spans across continents through stunning picturesque landscapes that stimulates the mind. Which is always a good thing, as I couldn't do with another Dragon Age 2 style game of bland backgrounds and boring textures.
There are also magical regions where the mountains and hills defy gravity, where's my anti grav boots?

As for the darkest depths of your mind they've created countless dungeons, as well as camps, impressive docks and grim fortresses that bear silent witness to battles, perhaps we will see ghosts! But that's not all, how about Mausoleums and cemeteries or Flying Islands and Creepy Mystical Swamps. Just reading this I can already picture myself playing an incredible RPG, but can they live up to the hype?

These are just some of the key features that will come into the game and what's more the developers are telling us that the game is pretty much complete, so unlike other kickstarters this isn't just a thought of project, it's going to be a reality. But that's down to YOU the pledger to get it finished.
