    Looks pretty good. Is this a native port for Mac and Linux or a wrapper ?

    100% native. It was developed with cross-platform support in mind from the beginning using Unity.

    You can follow their development on Kickstarter. They regularly send out major updates.

    Me too!

    Looks great, like a modern version of Baldur's Gate, my favourite RPG, really looking forward to this

    Is it locked into isometric view? My preference is a free camera.

    I wanted to update this thread….

    PoE is now available for pre-order! Huzzah! Pre-order from Steam, or from GOG if you prefer the (DRM-free) non-Steaming version. Mac and PC both available for pre-order, so it looks likely to be a simultaneous release. :D

    And yes, it does look very much like a modernized Baldur's Gate. My only question would be, what kind of RPG mechanics are they using? Baldurs was based on the mechanics of D&D 3.5.

    Baldur's Gate wasn't using the AD&D 3.5 rule set, think of the isometric titles released, only Icewind Dale 2 was. Baldur's Gate was based on the AD&D 2nd Edition rule set: http://www.gamefaqs.com/pc/75251-baldurs-gate/faqs/8566

    PoE is not a licensed AD&D title, but has it's own rule set
