Eschalon: Book II Announced

Basilisk Games announces Eschalon: Book II, a sequel to their cross-platform RPG planned for release in the middle of next year:

INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana June 10, 2008 Basilisk Games, an independent computer game developer specializing in role-playing games, today announced that Eschalon: Book II has entered full production and is expected to be released Q2 2009 for Windows, Macintosh and Linux-based computers.

The sequel to the 2007 acclaimed role-playing game Eschalon: Book I, Book II will continue the storyline from where it ended in the previous game and feature more than 60 gameplay enhancements.

"Basilisk Games is very excited to announce that we will be releasing Book II early next year. Classic, old-school computer role-playing is very much a viable market and we have been happy with the consumer response to Book I." commented Thomas Riegsecker, Lead Developer of the Eschalon series. "Book II will be an exciting step forward for the series."

No previous experience with Book I will be needed to enjoy Book II as the in-game narrative will guide unfamiliar players into the realm of Eschalon- a medieval fantasy world on the brink of war. The game will take players across multiple regions as they seek to further uncover the mystery surrounding their character's past. With an updated graphic engine, interface enhancements and gameplay improvements taken directly from fan suggestions, Book II will be an adventure no RPG enthusiast will want to miss!

The first edition was a bit overpriced. I'll wait for the pack.

Plus, I still have to play through Ultima and a couple other old school RPGs so I know why this is exciting. But they're on the backlog.

This would be so much better if it were a console port.

William Shakespeare's "Star Wars" Act I, Scene 4: CHORUS: And now, dear viewers, shall our play go to \ A Planet stark and drear for our next scene. \ Imagine sand and rocks within thy view. \ Prepare thy souls - we fly to Tatooine!

Awesome! It can't come fast enough. Book 1 was the best RPG in years.

Yay! The first one was a little bit of old school CRPG heaven, I can't wait for the next one.
