Thanks, yes it is. Kinda like a spiritual successor for the fans, but just combat for now, done way better (more strategical and fun).

I see it has no animations. Are you planing to make animation?

The projects seems huge tho.

Yes, but everything at the right time.

The gameplay is currently broken (until next version, hopefully released in one month from now) and there's no online multiplayer, which is more important than animations, hopefully that feature will be added later this year as well.

Here's a sample walking animation of Swampler creature http://ancientbeast.com/viewer

The project is kinda big, but very modular. A lot of money bounties will be placed on various github issues soon, I've updated initial post with more info.

OK that's kinda amazing. I will not play it tho because I played HOMIII too much back then :) And HOMII also :) I loved them both.

Thanks. That's the opposite reason for not eventually play it xD Haven't played HoMM2 much, but looked into it quite a bit via youtube mostly.
