by Dhruin, 23:28

This is the second newsbit for D.W. Bradley's The Orb and the Oracle - the first says "official site launched" and this one reads "on hold".  From the Dreamcatcher forums:

DreamCatcher: Unfortunately I don’t have any news on The Orb and the Oracle. The project is currently on hold. We appreciate your dedication to this game and I hope to have more news for you shortly!

The Orb and the Oracle - Official Site Launched

by Dhruin, 00:27

Heuristic Park and Dreamcatcher have launched the official site for their Dungeon Lords followup, The Orb and the Oracle.  Not a lot there at the moment but there is a new screen or two and a single wallpaper.  Here's the feature list:

  • A massive fantasy world filled with non-stop action and meticulously detailed indoor and outdoor environments. Explore shrines, campsites and country cottages throughout the vast rolling countryside, mountains, woodlands, swamplands and more.
  • An advanced and robust combat system couples with devastating magic spells for a variety of ways to vanquish your foes in real-time.
  • 25+ different classes to choose from and 3 class tiers. Create your character using a combination of 5 classes from the different tiers, opening different skills for each.
  • An epic, non-linear single-player campaign coupled with a multiplayer co-op campaign.
  • Hundreds of weapons, spells, items and rare artifacts to equip and use.
  • A variety of personal quests and missions, featuring a world filled with NPC characters to interact and bargain with.
  • Build your character earning experience, gold and other valuable items as you complete challenging quests. Unlock advanced class types for new depths of gameplay.
  • Designed, written and developed by award-winning computer game author D.W. Bradley.
