So, I'm liking this game...a lot. The user interface in and out of combat is looking good and easily navigable. The dice UI mechanics FEELS good; like, there is a feedback of stats that I can see in each roll that just wasn't there in Baldurs Gate 3. Customzation for the ENTIRE party is..oh man...THAT alone is terrific. I am LOVING how the backgrounds and the alignment/social flags are feeling in dialogue, and that the WHOLE PARTY seems to chime in during scenes. I'm picking who says what, but that just makes it FEEL like I'm DMing and Playing at the same time, for a cohesive cinematic/story telling experience. Even the bold text is nice during dialogue.
Sure, the graphics are rough and a bit dated as far as character animations and textures go (it's early access, I'm fine with it), but even THAT makes it feel ... wholesome? Like, it takes me back to playing old PS2 couch co-op games, and that's such a weird, unexpected little bit of euphoria.
All in all, I'm super digging it. Well worth the price of Early Access so far. I'm stoked.
