Blocky Movement - Feels like tetris
I really wanted to like this game. But movement feels more like playing tetris where you slide into place and not actually walk around and explore. I honestly can't get used to the feeling of movement in this game. I quit playing after 5 minutes.

The problem you have is stopping after 5 mins. Play it for a bit and try to get used to it.

Or you can pretend you're trapped in a board game :)

LOL I was born in 1975. So probably old enough to be your father. But I was just saying I presnoally didn't like the movement.

It helps if you get immersed. Like the 2nd poster suggested, try playing for a bit longer than 5 minutes. Also, try Old School mode. You'll be busy enough drawing out the map, you won't notice the movement that much, as you'll start-and-stop almost constantly. Some argue it seriously breaks the flow of gameplay, though I really like, well, how old school it is. Plus, combat gives you some extra excitement as the gameplay completely shifts to real-time action.

Ok cool. I'll try it again. Thanks

Thanks again guys. I just gave it another shot, changed it to old school mode and changed some control settings. I'm actually enjoying it now.

It's a beautiful remake of blob games like Eye of the Beholder and Dungeon Hack and games of it's ilk and emulating what at the time was an early first person perspective in cRPGs. Kinda sad that your attention span only lasts 5 minutes.. perhaps you can go back to playing Skyrim?

That's a bold statement for someone who seemingly didn't read until post #7...

I was kind of worried that I wouldn't be able to get into the whole control scheme of the game, but once you get used to it then it's very natural.

Once I realized it wasn't the standard walk and turn style of most FPS I got used to it. Changed my control to mouse and keyboard and set to old school mode.

Why would you change to old school mode mate? If you are new to this kind of games go standard mode with the in game map. Old school (no map in game) is good if you are doing a second pass or are a veteran of dungeon crawlers...

Oh, someone suggested Old School Mode. Thanks for the info

I just bought the game on sale and found out that you can play "old school" (without auto-mapping)! I am so excited. This will bring me back a quarter of a century when I would sit down with my pad of graph paper and plot my course.

For the younger folks, movement isn't "smooth" because you are moving on a grid and you have to draw the maze one square at a time. Of course, you need a lot of patience, but I think that it adds a lot to "immersion".
