I am one of those people who genuinely believe that graphics are one of if not the least important parts of a game. But this, this looks bad. I mean really bad. This looks like the kind of game that Jim Sterling would use for his ironically titled “Best of Steam Greenlight Trailers” series. That’s not just becuase of the PS2 looking visuals either. Conan is such a cultural icon that using it as the bases for what looks to be just another boring survival game shows a near total lack of creativity. That plus the “Pre Early Access” visuals make it hard no to think this is just jumping on the Early Access bandwagon for the same reason most developers do: to ring as much money as they can out of an unfinished project then jump ship before releasing the full game.
That kind of sucks to see as the developer hasn’t pulled a stunt like that before (in so far as i am aware). Hell, a few one or two of their games even had my attention until i learned they were MMOs, which i just don’t care for. Maybe that means i’m worrying too much here, but i’ll stick to the line of thought the precedent has set until proven wrong.
