I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Watched enough to see great models, bland gameplay. And the market seems to be starting to saturate with chibi dungeon crawlers now, so I’m a definite pass.

    I’m suprised they didn’t go with more varied dungeon tiles along the lines of those in Advanced Heroquest – would have helped to differentiate it from SDE at a glance, and provided more varied gameplay too.

    Not impressed with the game play at all. Very shallow, and overly simplistic. And there isn’t much that is unique about each hero, just the gear that they are equipped with. And there doesn’t seem to be any restriction on what each hero can equip.

    I was not impressed by that gameplay in the slightest. For those comparing this to SDE – SDE looks like the clear winner.

      And it’s not even close. This game might be fun for children and casual gamers. But for experienced gamers, especially those who have been playing SDE, this game looks like a huge step down/back.

        Well we certainly can’t have a game marketed at kids and casual gamers, can we?!

          Do you think that was CMoN’s intent? To create this chibi game (with minis showing half boob and more) and target kids as its audience? Or do you think they were trying to sell to the same people who buy/play SDE?

          And you can still have a game for casual/young gamers that isn’t as shallow as Nevada’s water reserves. See mice and mystics.
