Anyone remember Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magic Obscura

Post by lyons75 » May 31st, 2019, 11:33 am

I noticed a lot of people here appreciate older games without explosive visuals who sport a great storyline and enticing gameplay. So, I guess the question is already in the title. Has anyone here played Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura?

I find it sad that people don't know anything about it, especially RPG lovers. I guarantee that any real fan of stuff like BG1/2 or DA: O would also love this.

Anyway, I managed to find an article that reviews it - take a look at it if you're interested in trying out the game. Looking for someone to talk about our experiences. :)

I remember it of course. Replayed it 2 years ago.
Also I like BG and fallout 1/2.
I was able to reach Icewind Dale this year (not much free time in the life) but it was not nearly close as BG2. Was playing BG2 not so long ago again.
And I still have not finished Planescape Torment but I plan to.

Also there is Fallout: Nevada based on Fallout2 engine, made almost solely by one Russian fan. It is better than Fallout 2 ( hard to believe, yes?) and one of the best games I ever played.

Glad to hear that! Have you heard about the BG2 remaster that is currently in works?

Nope. I know about Enchanced Edition series made for all games for infinity engine by Beamdog.
I also played and finished BG:Siege of Dragonspear by Beamdog which can be counted as BG 1.5 and found it quite qood.
