Hi Guys, huge fan of Brany Skeldalu here, even supported the crowd-fund for Android port
When I learned there is a successor (not counting BS2) couldn't be happier.
I can't say 7M doesn't have an atmosphere, it certainly does for me. The locations are well thought out. It's an interesting idea to add musical instruments which I take it were also meant not only as a gameplay mechanic but also to provide background music, but it doesn't work as consistently since you have to switch songs from time to time... (they could at least leave the Caredbar town music in, although I bet most of us can hum the tune by heart till this day
What I feel is a little bit of a step-backwards is the inventory and character screen UI, but it might be cause by original design for touchscreen -who knows...
On the other hand I feel that the little-bit cumbersome inventory management adds to the User-Game interaction a bit more physical aspect, it's really part of playing the game. (not sure if that makes any sense)
Either way I really enjoy the game so far, even though it might be just pure sentiment
