SKALD: Against the Black Priory retro-style CRPG with one-man dev team Al of Scape-IT. What is SKALD? How is Al developing a true old school style game in a modern engine like Unity? Tabletop RPG gaming influence on the CRPG dev process. Not every game has to be 100 hours long. Shane’s favorite RPG fumble result ever. Yes, Norway is in Europe. Rest easy, rats are confirmed in the game!
