Thanks for the review Mischief Maker. It's interesting to see the game compared with an indie contemporary, albeit a freeware one. I've not played Iffermoon myself but it does have some great visuals.

www.gametunnel.com awarded TSE2 for being the best RPG game of the year. I'm in the middle of writing an indie 2008 chronicle for the Swedish gaming site www.gamingeye.com and TSE will be mentioned.. with praise ofcourse Wink

That is awesome. Very Happy I'm still thrilled that Gametunnel think so highly of the game.

It's not strictly press, but one of my favourite threads that I have hunted down with AWStats is at somethingawful.com

http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3039536

Gyoru, the original poster, has done a lovely job of summarising the game and giving some pointers to new players. I am very grateful for his efforts.
This being Something Awful, albeit the forums, I expected some sort of withering savagery, but the responses have been fairly positive.
It is becoming apparent that the tutorial areas of the game need some improvement. There's a lot of confusion around the battle system that I would like to alleviate.

Also, TSE-2 somehow got Gametunnel's #2 overall indie game for 2008, second place to World of Goo. Crikey. Surprised

I totally saw that coming Smile.

Spirit Engine 2 is just plain awesome. I must admit it gave me more fun than World of Goo, and that's a quite incredible game. Congratulations, Mark. You really deserved it.

Ah, that's great! Very Happy I used to listen to their podcasts while I was cooking. It's quite a nice site.

There was a review in the largest gaming magazine in Finland (Pelit-lehti), and it got 89-points as well as a "Definately recommended" stamp.

I had never heard of the game before that, and I'm glad I read the review. I just finished it and I consider it one of the best games I have ever played, mostly because of the story and the character interaction, which are more or less the best I've ever seen(better even than in BG2).

Had Kaltos, PyanPau and Denever as my party. The ending was very touching. Manly tears flowed.

Thank you very much for making the game. It has renewed my hope in this dark time for the future of PC gaming.

Thanks for letting us know Tiaval! Very Happy It is exciting to hear about a magazine review, especially in a non-English language publication.

I'm honoured that you enjoyed the game so much. The future of PC gaming does seem very uncertain at the moment. I'm planning to replay BG2 myself soon. It and Planescape: Torment are two very special games and it is sad to think that we will probably never see more like them.

Thanks again!
