Yeah, I'm curious about that aspect, too. How powerful is the editor? Does it allow to write your own dialogues? To create your own scripted events? Change the stats of the NPCs and creatures? Create new items etc.? What is possible, what are the limits? Is this comparable with e.g. Neverwinter Nights to a certain degree? For example, would it theoretically be possible to (re-)build Driftmoon's official campaign with this editor, or is it more restricted and doesn't have all the options that you and Anne had at your disposal?
The answer to all of your questions (and many more), is a resounding YES!
You can do almost anything you can imagine with the editor. You could build a game exactly like Driftmoon, or maybe even better. :P
In fact, making the game engine and the editor were a big reason it took us all those years to make Driftmoon. But I think it was worth it, because now that they're done, they are just really cool, and provide such a huge array of possibilities. :)
So yes, small additions and changes to the main game are just as possible as total conversions (even games of another game genre, so you don't necessarily even have to make an RPG). If you're interested in reading more about the editor, some of its features are covered in our modding wiki: http://driftmoonmodding.wikia.com/wiki/Driftmoon_Modding_Wiki
Ps. We've been getting some nice press coverage recently: Yesterday Destructoid, today Rock Paper Shotgun, yay! http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2013/02/25/its-finnished-driftmoon-out-tomorrow
These things mean a lot to a tiny company like ours, with a zero budget for marketing. :)
Hey there Driftmoon dev, I had a question or two.
First, would you be willing to supply some wallpapers for us in this thread? I noticed there aren't any as free bonuses when you buy the game. Plus I think it would be great for the guys that do unofficial DVD covers for GOG games to have something to work with for the front cover if they do one for Driftmoon.
Second, I plan on buying the game eventually but I was wondering where could I purchase the soundtrack?
I forgot another question I had but maybe it'll come back to me later. :(
Anyway glad to know this game got a release here, look forward to playing it eventually.
