A preview of the previous discussed Hinterland (http://www.tiltedmill.com/hinterland/) can be found Here. (http://www.gamesradar.com/pc/hinterland/preview/hinterland/a-20080829135345244089/g-20080829133822288013)

Also, it was expected to release Monday the 22th, but apparently it was delayed 1-2 weeks for additional content. I had NO idea it was due to release this soon. It's from Tilted Mills who've made Children of the Nile and Caesar IV, and they've been inspired by games like Majesty and Dwarf Fortress to build this game. I can't wait for it, presonally.

About the delay:


Hinterland was on target to be released this Monday, the 22nd of September. However, we have decided to delay its release a week or two, so that we may implement some additional features and content to the game, many of which came from the excellent suggestions we've received from the community. We want to thank you all for your support and patience. We know this delay may be disappointing to some, but we're confident it will ultimately provide a better play experience for all.

Thank you,
Tilted Mill Team

So do I, but there isn't much available. If you joined the thread early, I might not have been able to fix the "Hinterland" link in time. If that's the case check the link again to access the correct homepage, and not the forums which were posted before.

Tis' true, it's a good idea. But it doesn't take a genius to come up with ideas like that. Long have I wanted a game like this.

This is Single Player RPG, and it's most like Pay for the game.

Also, if you'd like to search for more crispy information, look at Gamespy's Preview Here (http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/hinterland/897378p1.html) and an interview with a co-founder Here (http://news.bigdownload.com/2008/08/06/big-download-interview-tilted-mills-chris-beatrice-on-hinterla/)

If there was some form of multiplayer this would be an awsome game.

Why would there be co-op in a SP game? Do tell.

I've been looking for an alternative to Dwarf Fortress, seeing as it's unplayable with it's shitty interface and 1970s graphics.

I take it you have played it with the gfx tilesets?

I cant play it in ASCII mode myself.
Interface is a bit hard at first, but its pretty smooth when you get used to it imo.

you found any gfx tile sets that work well... one i used tend to fuck up the txt alot.

DF with zelda gfx would be pure win, surely it can't be that hard to add in.

Must've been because this thread was right under the deathcamps thread.

I was thinking "WTF? Some game company sure has some balls."

Paradox is supposed to be making a third sequel now, in fact

If it's inspired by Majesty it better make damn sure it'll have multiplayer, a lot of fun times with that game.

Sounds familiar... Made by the DFO Team? :lmao:

Bad joke, I know.
If it's F2P I'll give it a shot actually, looks like a fun thing to do while waiting for DF to come out :)

Although I can see the humour in it...it's a bit sick actually :eek:

Thought you guys might find this interesting as well, found this on the forum and it's a tale from a Beta Tester:


I had a wonderful heroic encounter last night that I wanted to share.

About 2/3 of the way through an Easy / Long mission - playing a dwarf warrior, and I hadn't found fresh water yet. My potion count, while decent (think I had 10) had no way of replenishing it.

Finally as a blind stab (I was playing All resources On, but not visible), I found the well guarded by skeletons. Far too many skull and crossbones for my level, and the little red bar on the map site was all the way up. My party was myself (level 9 - sword and board defender), an Acolyte (still level 1) and a level 7 hunter with a bow.

I knew I was in trouble when I needed to get within range of one of the monsters to actually identify what the site was, and the level 11 zombie was none to happy to see me...

I pull them out one at a time, taking a long time to kill them, but surviving and healing up between pulls... until the last two that seemed to be standing on top of each other and not moving...so I knew they would both be coming together. A level 11 skeleton and a level 13 Fallen Hero ! Deciding that I need some more firepower - I head back to town and grab the highest level towns-person I could find.. a level 4 rancher. Drafted him into service as a caster with a wand, the second best shield I could find, plate armor, and a + attack misc item and set off back to my doom.

My goal was to gun down the level 11 as quickly as possible while enduring the punishment from the Fallen hero - but of course it didn't turn out like that. My caster was happy to assist me with the Skeleton, while the archer decided he could take the Fallen Hero by himself... needless to say he got out of there by the skin of his teeth (fled) - while I kept pounding away on the Skeleton... the Hero took off after the fleeing archer, which gave me and my Rancher time to finish off the skeleton and await the return of the Fallen Hero. My Acolyte's arms must have been falling off from casting so much.... Incoming Hero....

....Who Immediately runs over and 1 shots the rancher... (:P) he dropped like a ton of bricks, and nothing in my power could have stopped it. An EPIC battle ensues - my healer doing his best, and me supplementing his regeneration with Health pots for a 4 minute (!) slugfest which I barely won. Little more than a sliver of life left, and 1 health potion left in the bag.

Reward:
a 10 attack (very fast) 1h sword, a set of 8 AC magical plate armor, A crystal Ball, 45 gold, and A CHEST full of all sorts of other goodies.... Almost doubling my attack power while simultaneously more than doubling my defense, and giving 2 of my followers weapon upgrades as well.

Oh - and access to the well to boot.

found it very interesting myself.
