It's nice to see a dark fantasy RPG that isn't so ... dark. I'm really digging the sunny screenshots for Risen 2, and it's also great to see that the twisted monster design from the first game is still intact.
The first Risen had a lot of promise, in spite of a few questionable issues. I'm hoping the sequel is a drastic improvement, because there's potential for a great series here. I'll definitely be checking it out, in any case.
