With no mention of blue hair, a slow pace, etc...I will probably love it.

My review is available on Strategy Gamer if anyone's inclined to go read it.

It's got some great ideas and from my own experience what's there is incredibly polished - like I'd be surprised if you found any technical issues or bugs that can commonly plague indie/small dev team games. The biggest problem is simply there's not much there to begin with.

I love the early game, kick-starting your barter economy and trying to make an efficient web of jobs with your clans + migration and dealing with hostile roaming bandits... but the mid/end game lacks engagement. Diplomacy, AI etc... are virtually non-existent.

^I would hope the game will be relatively bug free after a 7 year development cycle.

No diplomacy? You really can tell he designed Civ5.  ::)

Very interesting video...I am liking a lot of what was covered in the first 15 minutes.  Haven't watched the rest yet.  It's a very different take on the Civ/4X formula.
