Bard's Tale remasters update from Olde Sküül

For all discussion on all the previous Bard's Tale games: the classic 1980s games (Bard's Tale, II: Destiny Knight, & III: Thief of Fate) & the humorous Bard's Tale (2004) spin off.

The only reason I backed this game was for The Bard's Tale remastered games but hopefully Bards Tale IV will be ok.
Note to inXile: In the past couple of years that I've been on this forum, I've seen numerous posts like the one above. Might be worth considering that much of the crowd-funding you received may not be a mandate for the game you're making, but for the one you already made as Interplay back in the 80's. This could be taken as a hint to make BT4 more like the originals, modern sensibilities be damned. (For whatever modern means.)
Very much this. It was the remasters that got me to back the game.

Great news on the remaster. BTW could we get the maps for the original games as a pdf?
Why? The Remasters have auto mapping.

And they're easily available at many locations on the web... part of the fun of the game is the discovery though. Use the automap, or make your own maps. If you get stuck or confused, refer to someone else's map :)

Unrelated question, but have you considered adding in some form of tooltips so we can see what an item or spell does ingame?
Matthias did nothing wrong!

No, I hadn't thought of that. I'll put it on the wish list. No promises, you hear!
