I'd never heard of it but for $4.99 what the hell?

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.   Thomas Jefferson

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.   George Orwell

If you ever find yourself in need of a safe space then you’re probably going to have to stop calling yourself a social justice warrior. You cannot be a warrior and a pansy at the same time.   Mike Adams

First impressions is that it is looks a lot like Fighting Steel. The map view has some issues with text being obscured by other text. I like that is it real time vs. turn based ala Atlantic Fleet.

Looks like it's built for easily adding mods.

Early days yet. Stay tuned.

That price nearly tempted me to buy it, then I realised I already had it in my Steam library  :idiot2:
