I had a couple dollars left in my steam wallet it was on sale for $2.50 so I figured I would give Avencast a shot and if I didn't like it no big loss but so far I like it a lot ! I actually like it better than torchlight (not better than torchlight 2).
To get it to run on win 8.1 in Avencast options you have to keep the resolution set to default, it will crash on HD res.
also I had to uncheck the video box at the bottom. the game seems to like it set to all the settings with the asterisk.
Im really enjoying the game so far. the controls take a little getting used to but it has a good story and great level design and creepy atmosphere in some places with some puzzles as well. Also its not point and click like most games like this. you control using a-s-w-d which I prefer, simple attacks are L / R mouse buttons major magic attacks are set up with hot keys, you can customize all the settings. The graphics are a bit dated but its a solid game. I would say its worth the $10 price tag but even better on sale.
