Looks like we got another Post-Apoc - but it has diplomacy, politics, and tactical combat.

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

I had to go look if that line was in the Advertisement, but after looking at the trailer i can see you came up with that on your own ;D. Not a big fan of trailers without any game play shown.

I've seen some
interesting screenshots, one of which really got me intrigued being based on real world maps... Sorry it's an attachment, but I haven't figured out how to insert images... any advice gratefully received! O0

Left-click the button that looks like a little mona lisa under the B(OLD) button. It spawns a {img}{/img} code in your text (except square instead of fancy brackets of course). Your .jpg link goes into in between the codes {img}like this{/img}.

That only works for a link, though, like to Photobucket or Imageshack, where the image is stored. If the image is stored on your computer, you're doing the right thing already: uploading it to your post as an attachment.  O:-)

Watched about 10 mins of presentation.  They are not really seeing it if you ask me.  Sounds like the have a trick they are trying to build a game around vs having a game idea to begin with.  Happy to be wrong

Good point. Yeah that was what I felt as well.
I also hope that turns out to be a wrong assessment.
