Please note; the game hasn't been released onto Steam yet. The release date is early next year. What you get sent to your email if you enter the giveaway is a download link for a DRM free copy of the game; which I believe is an αlpha or very early βeta release.
I've had significant issues accessing the main menu and the options menu and so far have only been able to run the game in the lowest graphic settings. After some trial and error clicking (the mouse pointer was invisible), I have managed to access the game. After a brief introduction via several pages of images the game menu appears.

The Game
I was given a copy of the game so that I could post a review before this offer went live, but I've had some issues with the main menu, and starting the game up. It looks like the game is in beta or possibly even Alpha) at the moment (it asks you to wish list the game on Steam). There is no mouse pointer on my installation, which makes it really hard to select the main menu items. When I finally managed to access the options menu, I wasn't able to save the changes, which meant the graphic was set to the default setting, which was the lowest texture setting i.e. very low and the resolution was 1920x1080.
The game starts with an introduction, with several images of ancient text that fade away quickly, leaving medieval looking silhouettes, then the main menu appears. Once you get the game to load it's in the third person view. There is a tutorial session that you can't skip that introduces you to the games key bindings and game mechanics. The movement keys are standard i.e. WASD; unfortunately I found movement really sluggish and does not flow like a regular game of this type.
If you've ever played any RPG's from about 15 years ago, for example Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, or Fable, the graphics are similar to those games; and are dated by today's standards, but are okay. Also the game play appears to be pretty standard RPG fare, with edged weapons and upgradable magical abilities but no guns. If you are not concerned about having the latest super duper graphic engine powered game, then once the access to the main menu has been updated, this looks like it will be reasonable RPG, which has been slated for an early 2021 release on Steam.
I'll update this review once I've been able to save my changes to the options menu and spent some time in game.
You can see a couple of game play videos and
Key Bindings & Options
WASD = Movement
I = inventory
J,K & L = attack modes
R = Select Weapon
T = Opens journal and flips pages

Use I/O to open and close inventory pages
Use I to swipe through all journal pages
Use arrow keys to navigate the inventory slot and then sacred item slot
Q = use activated sacred item
E = use activated crafted item

The options menu includes Resolution vSync, AA and Texture quality as well as a music slider where E tuns the music down and Q increases the volume. There's also a full screen/window toggle

Whiterabbit-uk, Hm.. I don't mind the graphics at all and it seems interesting. 40 GB though! Ouch on hard drive space. I just installed something I'm playing now too. I might have to go an uninstall binge to try this out. O_O

Thanks for the key binding, that really helps when I force to use Joy2Key as I'm not a big fan of keyboard gaming, having killed one poor device that way.

Cheers for today's review and do stay safe.

I honestly feel cheated. The title of the giveaways leads people astray

Paulo Monteiro,

Hi Paul, sorry you feel that way.

The game hasn't been released on Steam at this time, so there are no keys available. Instead you get the game as a DRM free download, (and free to boot), which is surely the better option? It comes already registered, so you are technically getting a licensed product, plus you don't require Steam to play the game. I don't understand how that can be construed as being cheated?

Still, you are entitled to your opinion, which is why I have allowed this and other comments about this so-called issue to be posted despite it not being a comment about the game play.

Stay safe and well.
