I loved the 1st game, the turn based magic elements gameplay was so awesome, the graphic while not technically impressive as Dragon Age Inquisition, they were colorful, vibrant and expressive. I didn't connect to the story and the characters in the first game and the game was horribly unbalanced, it had so many great ideas, from the crafting to Pet Pal.
The one thing the second game got me pumped about is skill combining, that grease rain on the lamps was hilarious xD, also the companions seem to be much deeper, almost to Bioware levels. Also hope that they properly balance source magic.
It looks so ambitious, hope it won't be his downfall (Dragon Age Inquisition I'm looking at you).
