That camera seems annoying, I would have preferred classic isometric. Looks like a indie, modernatization of Darkstone, could be fun.
The camera is annoying for the first few minutes then you get used to it. I've player most of the Alpha builds , good game with excellent mod support.
Hey, this has a pretty good sense of humour. Nice.
"Progress on the new content in the final alpha version:

Dialogue writing: 98%
Level design: 60%
Sound design: 60%
Final polish: 20%
Whole game: 98%!

That means we've completed at least two thirds of the NEW content (or about 98% of the whole game)"

Almost ready for release now.
On Indievania the game is listed as requiring online activation. Is that correct?

They send you a one-time license key. AFAIK there are no limitations or restrictions.

The game has a launcher which calls home to check for updates, but if you are offline it just don't perform the check, and lets you start the game as normal.

And once I've got the key, would I be able to use it for re-installing the game on another computer without having to connect to the internet? If so, I wouldn't consider it online activation, if not, that would be a restriction.

Ah, I have not tried that, so not sure. I swapped computers without any problems, but they both where online.

Hm, from reading their forums I gather it is indeed online activation:
No worries! Our servers won't drop out, and if we (theoretically) ever go out of business, we'll make sure you'll get an activation-free copy.
That's too bad. I mean promises are all well and good, but not really relevant in the business world, so unless that online activation-free copy is not for sale yet, I'll just save my money. I voted for Driftmoon on the wishlist though; if one day it should become DRM-free and available on GOG, I'd happily pay for it. Anyway, thanks for your replies, amok!
Just played the most recent update on driftmoon, Im very impressed by the development of this game,

I think Driftmoon would be an excellent addition to GOG's catalogue I know that Instant Kingdoms and the GOG staff have spoken to each other and the the developers would like to release on GOG but I think we need to poke prod and pester the GOG staff to seal the deal.

also if you have not already please vote for it: http://www.gog.com/en/wishlist/games/driftmoon
Bumping to pester blues and maybe get some interest in the game from tyhose who have not heard about it

Just wanted to chime in that there is in fact a DRM free version of Driftmoon available through Desura, and when Driftmoon lands on GOG, it will be similar. :)
