Will This Be A Cornerstone Of PC Gaming?


Ascension Games send word of their forthcoming first title, a third-person action RPG with cartoony visuals called Cornerstone: The Song Of Tyrim - a fine pair of videos of which you can see below. I particularly like its cell-shaded isles, jutting up out of a bright blue sea. Lovely. The developers describe the combat in Cornerstone as a blend of DarkSouls and Wind Waker, and says that games in both series informed their approach to Cornerstone, with non-linear progression, worlds that reward exploration, and all items in the world being manipulable physics objects.

Impressive claims. There's no date on it yet, but it's been confirmed for Windows, Linux and OSX. Presumably another Unity game, then, eh?

The game is heading towards Kickstarter in a couple of weeks, and I think it could do rather well.
