OK, ok...who is going to take one for the team and try this? Looks like the group that developed Arsenal of Democracy had some role in this game.

That looks interesting, like the old Balance of Power game. If didn't just buy Mutant Year Zero I would have tried this.

Does look interesting.....but not $30 interesting with little feedback on it.  With all the other sales going on, this one will need to wait for me.

i agree that the price is a bit too steep. $19.99 would seem like the sweet spot.

Just read that intentionally no save game option available in the game.....and the developer is only "warming" to the idea of adding it to the wish list.  Sounds like it is a short game, but no way I buy a game without a save feature.

My decision now made easier:)
