The devs have been posting updates every month on the kickstarter page, looks like they are shooting for alpha next month, maybe.

My feedback on the new images is that they're too low resolution for me to be able to give an informed opinion on how clear the information is being presented for gaming purposes.  They look nice from a distance and they're probably fine, but I can't read the chits.  Even when I go to the kickstarter page I still have issues reading the chits.  It's kind of like going to Matrix Games and looking at bad screenshots of good games(at least that's how Matrix used to be I haven't looked recently).  Maybe zip up the images if it's a matter of bandwidth? ;)

I don't want "light" games when I sit down on my PC.

However, as a focus point when sitting somewhere with nothing but a phone around it might be awesome.

Well the backers have their keys already - and I am among the lucky ones :)
They're great guys, Cyril is working hard and he is being supported by no-one else than Philippe Thibaut in his endeavor - yes, that Philippe Thibaut of Europa Universalis & AGEOD fame.

Going to be great  :bd:

Has the same problem as many of the Slitherine games.  If you have a peripheral like a joystick or a throttle plugged in, the map scrolls by itself and you canít control it.

I'll all-in on this as soon as it's released.  This will really take the edge off while we patiently await Task Force Admiral. 

I have a feeling once that is released, you may not see much of Toonces for a while.   :P

Oh thanks for the heads up Toonces btw ^^

Regarding this one, yes it seems realistic - they're in the middle of the beta test (I am just playing though, not testing so much) and Cyril is making steady progress. It looks great guys :)

Hmm, I must have missed something or maybe getting the key early was one option of several such as additional scenarios?

You're right, I didn't get any beta access either which my pledge level indicates I should have gotten.  I just dropped them a message on kickstarter, so we'll see what they say.

FYI we're getting updates through another email address

carrierbattles  (aaaaaat) yahoo dot com

Better to send Cyril a mail directly I guess :)
