I actually rather enjoyed this title the first time around. Reminded me of like a better feeling fable title. To hear it's getting an expansion (or rather the remaster is) is ... interesting.

Ooh an expansion as well? Was already excited by the remaster! :o

Wondering what they'd do with the IP when they bought it. Maybe if this does well, it will get some money for a decent mid tier game. I remember playing the demo but didn't buy it as was playing other things.

I remember buying this game on day one. Inwas very disappointed with it. I hardly played more than 2 hours and knew I was done.
