    Sounds like a complete mess! Interesting ideas, but it sounds more like an alpha build that's been released by mistake.

    Ouch! Thats making full use of the score range :D

    Agreed with above, think the dev may have hit the wrong button on the CVS.

    yeah, got it the other day, on the basis of "ah think BT did an interview with that guy a while ago" but mainly on "oooh steampunk civil war" It sounded interesting.

    I've yet to complete a full match, it's just so buggy.
    I'm presuming paradox (the publisher) stepped in here and released it early, as I can't believe any developer would release a game this clearly not finished.

    Is there a workable game in there somewhere??

    It's a shame because, of the face of it, it's an interesting idea.

    Such a shame, I remember your article on the initial impressions and it sounded like a great concept.

    I also assume that the developer got screwed over by a higher power... Perhaps it was an unworkable deadline - but on the other hand, perhaps it would give him some motivation to hire additional dev members? I admire his solo effort and wishing to keep full creative control, but I think he has bitten off more than he can chew in terms of sheer workload!

    I wish Radioactive luck and hope this eventually ends up where he envisions it to be.

    knowing paradox, they have someone working on fixing this already.

    jumped to last page for score before reading (i only do this on games i'm not interested in) was like wow - a ten! then i remembered about the 'new' scoring system.

    Hopefully this doesn't knock this guy's confidence, he's been forward thinking and tried something new and it hasn't worked, but that's ok.

    maybe he will continue to update it with the extra fluff, stuff like tutorials and control schemes etc.
    looks like its been released far, far too early!

    Weaponised zeppelins do sound awesome ... but that 10% at the bottom of page two is an effective deterrent.
