I posted this on the Grim Dawn forums, but I figured some of you might be interested in a game like this too...

So another European game...but this one looks really nice:

Looks like old school Diablo mixed with a bit of Baldur's Gate...and it's nice and dark/gritty. Looks like it uses sprites but the art work is really nice and gives the game an interesting style.

Main site is here and it looks like it's actually active (last update was květen 2010 and google translate says that is May 2010 lol) and getting updates.

And here:

http://games.cinemax.cz/inquisitor

Says the game can be pre-ordered for $30 (regular price will be $49) and you can play it 2 weeks before release...but it does say release (for US I assume) is Q1 which I think is long gone...so not sure if this is ever coming to the US or what the deal is.

Sucks another EU game not sure what the deal is with it lol...seems like all the RPG's I am interested in lately I can't play :p

Anyways, here is the description/features from the site:



The Inquisitor is a dark role-playing game of the highest quality. Prepare for a medieval drama with maximum style and great emphasis on details.

It brings you, a medieval inquisitor, to a gloomy world full of heresy, betrayal and devilish plots. You will hunt after perpetrators of the most atrocious crimes and you will meet a lot of cunning enemies. You will find yourself in the midst of a powerful conspiracy striving to destroy even the foundations of the thousand-year old Empire. As one of the three main characters you will explore all the mysteries of this depressing world and gain reputation of a fearless inquisitor and a witch hunter. Carry out dozens of secondary quests and develop your potential in order to face the more powerful and dangerous enemies and challenges. And remember – all you do depend just on your own choice!

The main pillars of the Inquisitor game are primarily its fast action and a catching storyline supplemented by an original game system and unique skills and abilities of the main heroes. The authors have inspired themselves with the high standards of the RPG genre and added inexhaustible amount of their own ideas and inventions. The result is an attractive and easy to control game with an intriguing potential. And it’s only up to the player which of these possibilities he will discover and utilize.

The storyline is based mainly on the investigation of various crimes, so the core components of the game are to expose malefactors, gain evidence against them and to prove them guilty in court, using both the canon law and the secular law of the Empire. One of the most important laws is the Inquisitional codex which lays down the rules and principles of the inquisitional process. And it’s the codex that governs your methods and action while hunting for heretics and witches who threaten the whole Empire with their obscure plots.

A very important part of the inquisitional process is torture. It allows you to use up to four torture instruments when interrogating the worst criminals (a rack, a strappado, a whipping post and an iron maiden).

Stands a pretty good chance, seems like something destined to pop up on Gamersgate. They just need to stay on top of patching fixes/balancing/content so as to not wind up as something like Etrom.

Lots good stuff steadily coming from Europe and the like these days, here's hoping they keep it up!

Does anyone know if this game was released yet. Or if I can play it as a demo, it looks sick.
My luck it wont work on my computer if it is out though, and it's new.

I preordered the game that was set to be out on January 1st this year a month in advance. Its been 3 months and nothing has changed. Biggest waste of $30.00 ever. Im not even going to ask for money back because these guys obviously are a fly by night operation.

This is why I don't do pre-orders before we have something that is publicly playable.

It does suck, but it was a gift from my dad last christmas. I actually see it as a good thing to be honest. I'd rather support soldak as the community is more alive. The more alive a community is, the better and more range of people you can get in. Inquisitor obviously had a good product but they forget the ability to reach out. If they were going to do it right, they should have at least made a notice that it would take more time.

I preordered Inquisitor (English version) too, but am still waiting for the game. It is available in Polish though, but I can't even download the Polish version (since I bought the English version). All I can do is wait. Two or three years for an English translation is long, don't you think ?
