《旗帜的传说The Banner Saga》在Kickstarter上募集到了不少的资金（近100万美元），在独立游戏中排成分也算得上是个小地主了。游戏给人的第一印象非常不错，就连最麻木的双眼也能感受到它的震撼。清丽逼人的画面仿佛扑面而来的清风，让人想起早年的迪士尼经典动画大片。但《旗帜的传说》哀怆的音乐提醒着我们，在这片白雪皑皑、斯堪的纳维亚式的世界里，空气中流淌着的不是鸟语花香，而是末世将至的悲情与冰冷如刀的残忍，王子与公主的甜腻故事根本无处存身。
Another nice game release for MacOSX !
Nice graphics, a fabulous soundtrack and many awesome features : The Banner Saga is, sure, a real success.

Carefully choose those who will help fight a new threat that jeopardizes an entire civilization. Every decision you make in travel, conversation and combat has a meaningful effect on the outcome as your story unfolds. Not everyone will survive, but they will be remembered.
