Drakensang: The Dark Eye Interview

GameGuru Mania has conducted an interview with Radon Labs' Bernd Beyreuther, quizzing the project director about their upcoming fantasy RPG, Drakensang: The Dark Eye.
Q: Could you compare Drakensang with good old Baldur's Gate?

A: It's a very apt comparison. One big difference: Drakensang is based in the world of The Dark Eye, Germany's most popular role-playing system. What the games have in common is the design as a classic party-based RPG, without irritating button mashing, but with tactical, pausable combat, including a skill-based dynamic dialogue system, unique characters and an epic story as a primary element. The setting is a classic low fantasy world with elves, dwarfs, orcs - definitely no spaceships and time travel here - that has an almost historical and very deep medieval feel.
