The Banner Saga at PAX2013
Hi again backers!
It has been a nutso month! We've been crunching (no surprise there), to get a playable build for PAX, which starts on Friday. We released some press kits in preparation and Kotaku already posted a news story on it, with new screenshots! Crazy!
Check out the other screenshots here.
We wanted to share the PAX demo with all of our backers, so what we'll be doing is giving you a playthrough of the game and showing off the same thing that PAX attendants will be playing.
The bit I'm most excited about is that as we've always said, the game has a lot of choices to make. Real ones! So what I'm going to do is stop at major decisions and let everyone vote on what to do next. Even at the very beginning of the game you'll be making decisions that impact the entire story. I'll also be doing commentary as I play, showing off the new classes, abilities and enemies and giving more insight into gameplay.
Spoiler warning: this will be a playthrough of the first 30-50 minutes of the game (depending on what choices you make). It's worth noting that even if you participate your own playthrough may turn out very different.
We'll start this Saturday and keep doing videos every couple days until we've made our way through the story! Hope to see you there!
