Unique looking game. I'll probably buy it just to support some originality in a tired genre

A few questions / observations.

Is there going to be multiplayer? It seems well suited for PBEM ++ etc

Also I know that you are creating an IP from whole cloth but I think that a bit more work needs to be done fleshing out the world.


I think the concepts behind the nations are great. But the naming of the units is a bit lacklustre

Also the art assets apart from the main map feel unpolished

Don't like the unit portraits. They look like touched up photos - looks slightly amatuerish (sorry!)

Overall though, very intrigued.

As I understand it, multiplayer is not planned right now. I agree that the current abilities of the gameplay, would be interesting in pbem.

With the card artwork; is it possible for a moddder to add their own portraits/unit art?

I look forward to learning more on the game.
Regards, Russ

I have to agree with Asty on the art assets. At this point they just feel too generic to me. I think its a missed opportunity not to have unique art for each faction. Why not give each faction their own distinct visual characteristics that carry through all their unique units. Take for example the dragon knight guys, why not give them armor with a dragon motif.(scales,dragon winged helms etc). It would also be cool to incorporate a factions flag and national colors into the art(belts,tunics,heraldry on shields). I love the effort put into the various factions lore, it just needs to carry over into the art.
