Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
For those that don't know, Mount&Blade is some sort of RTS and Third-person game wrapped around a sexy RPG. Like Oblivion, but with horse combat and small armies, minus the elves, bloom, and OMG awesome graphics. So graphics have their issues, but it still rocks. Think of X2 in space, but without the slow travel times and annoying hardware issues (despite this being a prerelease version).
Also, developed by some indie group.
For those that bought full versions of previous versions, you can email them for updated license stuff if you have problem.
