Thanks for the info, Marian, but sadly, much as I like Baldur's Gate, this one is not for me.
Rather over the top with the special effects
Indeed. The trailer makes it seem more like a horror game than a Baldur's Gate game.
I guess the question is whether this trailer is really representative of the entire game or more like an introductory video that can be skipped. Does the rest of the game have graphics more like the old Baldur's Gate games (without the upchucky gore), or is the whole game this Lovecraftian version of the world of Baldur's Gate.
Of course some people like the upchucky gore, and going by the YouTube comments I'm sure Larian and GOG will do just fine with this game, with or without my help.
