The game looks very interesting to me.  So long as it doesn't turn into a total spreadsheet mash-up, I will almost certainly check it out once it makes it out of Early Build mode.

Pardon my grognardy-grumpiness. Pretty soundly rejected by the group, for the most part.

...and that's OK! I like a hexes and chits (TRIM THEM, DAMMIT) with a small silhouette and LOTS of itty bitty numbers as much as anyone.

I loved me my 5-5-11 Churchill tanks in Panzer Blitz, and a MG along a straight road in ASL still brings a smile to my face. GO AHEAD, TRY TO CROSS THE STREET!

This is a good game, but not for everyone.

Nah, you weren't rejected.  I think it's part of the forum rules somewhere that every thread has to be derailed to some extent in order for it to be considered valid.

Is that what Origins is like?

My guess is Origins is waaay more disturbing.

Getting back to the OP, this game has released a Demo on Steam.  I played it for an hour or two last night and am quite impressed with the game mechanics and reach.

I've only scratched the surface, but I can't really tell how much "flavor" the game has.  I'm not crazy about the art work, but after playing for a few minutes, it's not really a distraction.  I LOVE the notion of having a city production mechanic that involves more than just "Population and Production", even if they only introduce one or two more "resources".

The biggest question I have is around replayability.  It feels like they have a little bit of work to do to customize different factions, etc.  At least in the demo, everything feels awfully generic.  And the map, while it might steer you in certain directions, doesn't seem to have an overriding influence that I can see (yet). 

Those who have played the game more than I might be able to comment more fully on it.  For still being in Alpha, the game looks very good.  For those interested in just spinning the tires on the Demo, I thought it worth a bump on this forum.

I wish I could have found a game like this when my son was 8 years old. Maybe I could have steered him towards strategy type games a little more. A great combination of great game mechanics and graphics that a young audience would like.

Just spent 3 hours with the demo. Seems pretty solid so far.
The interface needs some work in places but the gameplay is good. The tutorial leaves a bit to guesswork as far as what things do, some translation issues or simply a lack of written instruction in places but I sussed it all eventually. Only quirk I found there was after winning the tutorial it gave me the option to continue, which I did and eventually cleared the board of all enemies but the last requirement was occupy all enemy castles... As far as I could see I WAS occupying all the castles but it wouldn't give me that last check mark.

Reminded me of Wesnoth to an extent. Was fun enough for it to somehow be 4am.  ::)
