The Banner Saga

YouTube Video

Developed by the recently formed Stoic, which is composed of BioWare veterans. The game is stated to have BioWarean influence, such as in the dialogue system and the emphasis on storytelling.

What we know of gameplay is that it will be tactical combat. A free multiplayer gameplay component will be released first, followed by the singleplayer. I think that's what they used to call demos back in the day.

Forum Veteran Helpful! 
I'm interested to see how this turns out. The brief glimpse at combat suggests something more akin to a browser based game than a traditional TB-RPG, but I guess we'll know more in a few months. At any rate it certainly looks very pretty, with the traditional animation style.

The Codex has done an interview with Stoic - http://www.rpgcodex.net/content.php?id=8040

It seems that they also have a Kickstarter now, asking for 100K - http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...he-banner-saga

Reading the Codex comments page, where the dev in question jumped in to answer some questions, Shining Force is trotted out a lot as a source of inspiration. Sounds good to me, as the SF series is one of my faves.
