Let's hope it doesn't take them an extra year (and then some) to get an English language version on shelves.

And yes... The Dark Eye is due out in the next couple days according to EB Games.

Edit: Has anyone got a copy of The Dark Eye? I just noticed that EB Games/GameStop have it listed as 'Backordered'. Anyone heard wtf is going on with the release or if there has been an official release?

Wow, this one is under-the-radar, isn't it? Could they not get a Steam release?

Yeah, the demo was decent. And the game is something of a bargain, so I'll be picking it up too. EBgames has it listed as being in stores tomorrow.

@Creston:

I played the demo and loved it. Actually loved it enough to go through it twice. The graphics weren't anything to get excited about (Somewhere in between NWN1 and NWN2, graphically) but the combat was almost exactly like Baldur's Gate. It had the same feel that the early Bioware games did.

Lots of skills, stats, abilities and such. Looks very addicting and I can't wait for my official full retail copy to come in the mail this Thrusday.

Dang, that looks pretty nice. I'm a big fan of RPGs but I too have never heard of this. More information welcome.

That screenshot for the prequel is pretty damn tasty.

The original has review scores generally around %80, but I haven't heard of it until now

Did anyone play the first one? Since the Gothic series has gone to hell, it'd be nice if something came along to replace it.
