I was a Nintendo kid growing up, and I’ll routinely include the Wind Waker in a list of my favorite games ever. So when a game invokes the legend of that cartoonified Zelda, it will have my immediate attention.
One of the more ambitious Kickstarter-funded games, Cornerstone: The Song of Tyrim will finally be released on April 26th on major digital distributors including GOG.com, Humble Store and others. The game is "a sweeping fantasy tale in which combat, crafting, and physics-based puzzle-solving collide."
Swedish developer Ascension Games has just released a pre-Alpha demo for their charming open-world 'Wind Waker meets Dark Souls' action adventure, Cornerstone: The Song of Tyrim. It has 11 days left.
Physics and player choice are big focuses for the project. Ascension is asking for $30k and so far has just over $17k from almost 900 backers. Hopefully this demo will help.
