A Return To The Open-World RPG Well That Has Run Dry

The developers are already working hard to patch Wave of Darkness and fix the issues reported by players. There's still a long way to go, however, and some problems run pretty deep into the game's core gameplay. As long as you realize that there are going to be annoyances that are out of your control, you can still have a blast with the game. The character progression system is very intriguing and rewarding, since there are many options at your disposal, especially in the spell department. Still, the developers have a monumental task ahead. Most players will most likely get frustrated on the tutorial island, and things don't get much easier to deal with after that either. Hence, you are advised to wait for more patches and improvements from the developer

Despite the performance and balance issues, the game had frequent updates after the November release. You can't expect an indie game to be perfect. Heck, even AAA games also have their own issues in fair view. I understand Dreamatrix' Game Dev's are aware of this as they frequently listen to the Steam Community. Perhaps soon they might add more features and at the same balance the character NPC stats. And lastly, fully optimizing the game would be the last one I'd like the devs to add. So for now, as long as you can tolerate the issues, this game can be playable and enjoyable. I enjoyed it and intend to play for as long as I can.
