There isn’t much news from Piranha Bytes this week, Dragons and Dragonettes. Their latest title, Risen 2: Dark Waters, continues to receive reviews that can best be described as “middling“, and even the typically generous Alec Meer at Rock, Paper, Shotgun didn’t feel he should recommend it to others. This despite the fact that he did enjoy several aspects of it.
I gather that a patch was released recently to correct some of the more glaring issues with the game (e.g. combat mechanics), but…well…evidently Risen 2 is still a bit of a dud. Pity.
For those of you who are still curious about the game, a new Developer’s Diary has been released, concerning decision-making in the game (apparently).
