I have had this game in my backlog and just put it in yesterday. I couldn't stop playing it. Most fun I've had with an RPG in a long time. It feels like sort of a cross between Skyrim and Dark Souls - a lot of questing and leveling up and putting points towards "perks" but also an emphasis on fighting and learning moves. I am playing on Hard level and it hasn't been all that challenging yet. I actually hope it gets a little tougher. Took me about an hour of playing to level up one level, so I think it goes at a pretty good pace.
The only drawback, and it's really not even a drawback, is that I can't focus long enough to complete a quest. I'll set out and then run into someone else who has a quest which sounds interesting and so I'll switch to that quest and then while on the new one, I'll stumble across another and so on. I've pretty much neglected the main storyline.
Shame about the developer...I would have loved to see a sequel.
