Independent developer Stoic has launched a new trailer and website for their free-to-play role-playing game The Banner Saga. The game is the product of a successful Kickstarter campaign which completed last year and raised over $700,000. The development team consists of a team of three who previously worked on Star Wars: The Old Republic.
The Banner Saga is unique in that it is entirely hand-painted and boasts a style of game you would imagine if you had merged an old-school adventure game with a turn-based RPG. It is slated for release on January 14, 2014 for PC and Mac.
Sean started playing video games in infancy. He was not given a choice as much as a directive from his parents to be the best gamer on Earth. Sean was subjected to 10-12 hours of rigorous daily gaming throughout his youth, mastering the most complex video games and dominating online competitions. Sean's symbiotic relationship with video games led to writing about them for various gaming websites, and he is currently involved in sales strategy and analytics at one of the largest video game publishers in the world. Sean's mission is simple: Turn 100% of the human population into gamers, willingly or otherwise.
