Return to Skara Brae in The Bard’s Tale IV

If you havn’t seen the hype yet, inXile Entertainment are returning to the city of Skara Brae in The Bard’s Tale IV, currently on Kickstarter.

Although we’ve previously touched on the fact that the game was being developed, I thought it was noting that as of right now the game has surpassed its original funding goal of $1,250,000, as well as its first two stretch goals. These are especially important to Ultima players, because they add an enhanced Companion NPC system and an enhanced Crafting system to the game. With 10 days remaining, it is likely that additional stretch goals will be reached, unlocking new dungeons to explore.

If you have a fond place in your heart for The Bard’s Tale, the city of Skara Brae, or even just the Gaelic music that will adorn the world, you should check out The Bard’s Tale IV on Kickstarter before it ends next Friday, July 10. In the mean time, check out this video of the in-game engine.
