Thanks for the communication. I look forward to what you can do!

Something I believe it's important to comment: Most of the knowledge gathered making this simpler game will be applicable to DT, because event it's not an rpg, it's isometric view too, so it means all the collisions handling, raycasting, player and npc movement, obstacles, UI inventory, triggers... will be perfectly portable to DT. So making this game serves to honing my skills to make DT and at the same time i hope it will reduce its development time. While making this prototype i'm constantly envisioning how it can be applied to DT in the future.

Thanks for your support guys, it means a lot to me. As I already told, the team was disassembled due to lack of funds and i'm the only one who still dreams to make DT a reality. Many hardships await on this long, rough path and i'll probably need to make other smaller games first to earn enough funds, as Larian Studios did for example. Just for you to know i'm making a game in Unity, it's not an rpg but a more simple retro adventure arcade. It can take a year to finish, but i need first to develop good programming skills and 3D knowledge before tackling DT, that's so much more complex. I'm still prototyping, things are going well but it's too early to show you something, but you'll be the first ones to know. I pray God this humble game goes financially well so I can focus only on making DT with the funds earned. I'm overly optimistic here, I know, but I need to be. I believe dreams can be achieved and I'm going to fight for it whatever it takes. Thanks again for your support - Abel B.

So...what happened with this game? I want it.

Continue fighting to keep this dream alive and make a reality. We believe in you.
King Of Sorrow Jul 26 @ 6:30pm 
Astonishing. I wish you well in the completion of this game.
mm.324 Jun 23 @ 5:28pm 
I wish you the best of luck. And just want to let you know whether it takes 1 year or 5 years I'll be looking forward to playing TDT.

If you can make this game a reality, people will buy it. I know I would. And I'm still subscribed to this thread somehow

You are clearly passionate about it, so don't give up. We can wait for it, don't worry. Remember:

[continues from previous post] I also want to thank everyone interesed in the game and all of you that with your kind words are keeping the flame alive and are contributing to give me the strength to make another serious attempt on bringing TDT back to life. I won't publish too many posts here, nor we'll open any forums for the time being until I'm sure that we have something substantial to show you. It could take 1 year, maybe more, I don't know. The only goal is to help TDT to see the light of the day and make it a good CRPG even the scarce resources available. I'll try to do my best. Yours, Abel Bascunana

[continues from previous post] We have a lot of assets from the former Dark Triad, lots of lore, quests, dialogues, definitions for combat... We won't run another KS campaign... my goal is to continue the development on my own as far as I can go, and only when I have something minimally playable, no matter if it's with placeholders, then look for funding. I don't see any other way out of the situation. From now until the end of the year i'm laying out the necessary conditions so I can spend a whole year of my life dedicated solely to take TDT out of its eternal sleep and quit my current job at King (the candy crush one yes, I can feel what you may think... shame on me). Within a year, I plan to implement only 4 things: 1) a rough turn-based combat, 2) a proper character customization system (changing clothes and armours in real time), 3) the items system and 4) All dialogues and quests for the first chapter.

Sorry for the late reply, @mm324 . The project was halted and the team dissolved. but, as I said on an earlier post, i'll fight to make this game no matter what it takes. Making a decent CRPG needs 2 things: passionate people with proper knowledge and money. For the former, I've been working in the games industry since 2005 so I know many passionate colleagues with a bunch of experience, but for the latter, getting money is not that easy. We launched a KS campaign and it was a failure, partly because we didn't have much to show and partly because we didn't invest money in promoting the game. Also we used XNA to make the game and that was a big mistake. Nowadays, Unity is the way to go, you have Blackguards and Pillars of Eternity as perfect examples of what can be achieved. Anyways, even with Unity, making a good CRPG could take 2,5 years... there are a couple of good things:

I hope you guys are still working on the game, when you have time. Have you tried Kickstarter? The fact that it got greenlit means that there are plenty of people who want to buy it when it''s done.
namianwu Nov 5, 2014 @ 9:33am 
Fully agree with Nyrreah's comment below. This looks like a good game and it's a real pity things turned out the way they have. That knowledge is made even worse when inane rubbish such as Goat Simulator or Mount Your Friends have sold so well. Anyways, I would like to wish the devs the best of luck for the future, and I hope eventually you guys will be able to continue and complete the vision you had for this game.
Nyrreah Aug 16, 2014 @ 11:39pm 
It's annoying how good games like this one here going to trash, crushing dreams of people while shit as goat simulator got millions...
raine173 Jul 27, 2014 @ 2:56am 
The fact you refunded people and didn't just keep the money and claim to still be working on it, is amazing and I wish you guys all the support in the world. If I had extra funds to help you out, I would. Your honesty and goodwill will carry you through. Good luck and best wishes on this project and future ones.
AutolootGames  [author] May 13, 2014 @ 3:29pm 
Hi guys,
I know some of you asked what going on with the game. Unluckily we didn't find enough funds to continue its development so it's been halted. It doesn't mean there are no plans to continue working on it, but the situation at the moment is not only not the best, but is impossible for us to quit our jobs just to make this game unless we have a reasonable amount of money to keep developing the game for 1,5 years. We can't live of air and we must pay the bills, that's just why all the team members have had to get regular jobs. As I told many times, me and my partner spend all our personal savings, about $40K, to make a playable working demo, but things didn't turn out well for many reason. It's been a very, very tough, but good learning experience. I can only promise one thing to you guys, you'll be able to play this game no matter how long it takes.

Really like the art and gameplay shown so far.

Keep on going guys!

Looks awesome!
AutolootGames  [author] Mar 10, 2014 @ 8:47am 
We are very grateful to you guys for getting our game greenlit! =)
At the moment we can't make any public statement about the state of the project, but I just wanted to let you know we are still working on it, even we don't have the money to do this full-time, that's just why it's taking so long. Hope to share more news soon and thanks again for your support!

looks like baldurs gate
ColosusZerker Jan 29, 2014 @ 5:20am 
didn't ask for you life story, just a video game and this isn't one. Downvoted.
Tristis Oris Jan 25, 2014 @ 2:47am 
why all the fonts, images, and locations taken from Baldurs Gate? it looks strange. But I hope you will make plans.
Sybertank Jan 24, 2014 @ 9:29am 
Hate to waste votes on something that is not even being developed. Looks like most recent posts are almost a year old. Steam needs to clean stuff like this out of Greenlight if it is no longer being developed.
Dendromecion Jan 23, 2014 @ 7:49pm 
Is this game still in development? There were (i think) 2 failed kickstarters at the start of 2013, the FB and twitter pages are dead, and i can't find any way to contact Autoloot Games (the original devs) and a google search brings up ZERO hits for "Zuril Games". What's going on guys?

Players demands RPGs with the features that this one promises... !.

The Game looks very nice and interesting. I thing the game have potential.
Lebo Oct 19, 2013 @ 2:28pm 
Looks a lot like Baldur's Gate, and I love cRPG's. I hope this one makes the cut.
Myrk Sep 14, 2013 @ 6:30am 
I was searching for a game like this. There are too many games in real time. It was a shame that this project don't go ahead.
Lolozaur Sep 6, 2013 @ 6:08pm 
this was cancelled lol
foad1978 Sep 4, 2013 @ 8:09pm 
It's about time gamers got some decent turn-based strategy RPS's.
This looks very interesting.
RJ Berger Aug 30, 2013 @ 8:07am 
looks very promising thumbs up
Earl of Fistfuckingham Aug 9, 2013 @ 12:26am 
i saw the screenshots and voted yes, i scrolled down and saw it was yet another turn based strategy game and changed it to no. its become like the days when almost every game that came out was an fps. apart from a few sport and racing games. current day has no need for turn based when you can use spacebar to pause the game at any time and issue orders while the rest of it is a dance of death and carnage.
hezekiah-angel Aug 8, 2013 @ 3:55pm 
Keep up the work guys + I hope the game takes off. I love RPGs
Space*elF Aug 2, 2013 @ 1:17am 
looks like you have a lot of really good ideas and story for a game here. i myself am partial to arpgs in particular but i have been known to take to crpgs from time to time if they are special to me i will not mention names but there are quite a few i could list but i will make this short i had a thought what if a game was both crpg and arpg like to get to the arpg gameplay one would have to swim through the crpg story and questline and maybe figure out some puzzle or whatnot and vice versa the game could topsy turvey itself i mean why limit games to one genre idk it might not work at alll hehe just a thought

AutolootGames  [author] Jul 28, 2013 @ 3:36pm 
@FleshWound: Nothing would make us happier than restart the development because CRPGs is what we love and want to do. Any ideas, suggestion or support from you guys is welcome, let's see if we can make this take off again!
FleshWound Jul 26, 2013 @ 5:00pm 
That's a shame. I stumble upon this game which is just my kind of game and... it's the day after development halted. =(
AutolootGames  [author] Jul 25, 2013 @ 12:06pm 
Hi guys. The game has been halted due to lack of funds. On the first video you can see a tech demo we did in less than a week inUnity. We were currently developing in XNA, but it posed many issues and we wouldn't have been able to finish the game after a long time. That's why should we get enough funds to continue its development, we'll use Unity as Obsidian does. Things would go faster. Unluckily, getting funds for an unknown developer is hard, but we will keep looking for ways to restart the development of the game. Many thanks for your support guys, it means a lot to us that you keep voting us, because if we can climb up the ladder on Greenlight it would be easier for us to convinvce the right people to get some budget. Peace.

Looks awesome
Duathron Jul 23, 2013 @ 11:50am 
reminds me of the good old days of gaming. invest more time story and characters, rather than graphics. Looks like an old game too, but hey, graphics do not equal fun!
