voice acting?
Will this game have a cast of actors or will it be text-based?

No voice acting. Just text-based. I'm sorry but we are Indie developers and RPG scripts are longer than in other genres. In some cases (prices vary wildly depending on amount of text and actor price and studio price), a dollar a word is a fair fee. Put that on your 10,000 word script and pray you never have to change a line of dialogue.

I was actually hoping for text based, usually in indie games the devs use friends and family and it more than often not ends up worse, anyway, thanks for clearing this up!

It's also better this way in that it gives the freedom to write as much you want.
I agree with Maskedviper. Poor voice acting can kill good dialogue. The game looks interesting, I hope the dev team finds success.
