There are gamers who wish the 1990s never ended. 3D, high-def, online multiplayer? Bah. All of this is trumped by the greatness of the 16-bit era and most markedly, the SNES. Black Sigil: Blade of the Exiled is a game made entirely for these gamers, and despite some stumbles, it largely succeeds at tapping into that sense of nostalgia for games gone by.
Creating role-playing games can be a labor of love (not that it can’t be a labor of money either): creating a storyline, a world, and the people, creatures and items that exist and interact in that world is no mean feat. And when it comes to the upcoming RPG for the DS, Black Sigil: Blade of the Exiled, you can tell that a lot of love went into crafting this one.
