    I checked this demo out a couple of days ago, it's really rather good.

    Yeah I backed Solasta early on after trying the demo. It's already showing a lot of promise; if they were saying the game was coming out next month, based on the demo I could believe it was ready.

    I am not very familiar with 5e and based on what I have been reading I think I like 3.5e a better but still very excited for this game as I am for Realms Beyond.

    After the Pathfinder game's ridiculous load times, I'm far more skeptical of these things now...

    The load time to start the game was pretty lengthy, at least on my PC, but between different game maps it wasn't too bad at all. Certainly not anywhere near as bad as Kingmaker's load times.

    Hmm, I experienced pretty quick load times with the demo but I have a SSD as my main drive so that may have helped.

    Good data, if not enough to convince me to buy...

    Well funding is well past the goal and 2 days left to reach stretch goals. Ranger class is now unlocked. Since the final 2 days are usually the biggest I'm hoping a few more can be reached, like maybe one more class. It's looking like there will be half-elves in the game.

    Holy crap, my account still works!

    Hope everyone is doing well.

    Just wanted to chime in that I also backed Solasta during the Kickstarter phase and Early Access through Steam starts October 20th.

    They unfortunately can only use the SRD rather than a full D&D license, so there's a bunch of homebrew subclasses and the like to replace things not in the SRD, but so far I'm really excited for this one. In a lot of ways it feels like a spiritual successor to our beloved ToEE (turn-based, build your own party, faithful adherence to the current ruleset (in this case 5E.)

    The EA will have all the planned classes (Cleric, Fighter, Paladin, Ranger, Rogue, Wizard) and races (Dwarf, Elf, Half-Elf, Halfling, Human) that will be available in the full release and will take you to level 6 (out of 10.) Sorcerer will also be available as a free DLC sometime after the full release.

    They're a small studio (only 17 people) so it's not going to be a AAA release like BG3, but it also seems like it's going to be way more faithful to the D&D rules than BG3 is.
