    These Paradox game clones always look like horrible shovelware, but who knows?

    You can (and should) say a lot of bad things about Paradox games but those copies are usually even worse as far as literally everything in the game goes.

    In fact most that I can remember were outright unplayable or broken.

    That having said I really look forward to something that changes my mind. Not sure if one dev can manage a game of this scope tho.

    Graphicaly it looks ok, it's yet to be seen how the game actualy plays, but reading various posts people are saying good things about this and are tired of paradox.

    I like this, beautiful graphics.
    I hope he tries to model mechanically as many dynamics as possible.

    Seems to be pretty much Civilization + Paradox, which is interesting.

    I would cautiously fap to this if I wans't doing no-nut november.

    Also, this is also for mobiles, which doesn't exactly makes me feel optimistic about it.

    As someone who loves Pdox grand strategy, I feel we really need this kind of game. Competition is good.

    What's the system reqs, tho?

    This is not a good idea, unless your systems are VERY good. Like migrations and population dynamics and the way systems of government and modes of life interact. Kinda like a Paradox game, but on maximum autism.

    As far as using XX century placenames in XV century, they do outmatch even Paradox indeed :negative:

    Trying to do that is a terrible idea, unless you are making something very abstracted like Civ games. If you want something like a Paradox game that aims for realism within certain eras trying to do "all history" is not going to work.

    Some extreme levels of fabulous optimism here, one guy making it? No way this will end well.

    And Paradox killer? No offense Makabb but your a moron.

    I find the feature breakdown very much inadequate, and also am not going to watch videos. Need more meat on those bones.

    I like the system requirements, tho; you could run it on a potato.

    Also, Pdox-style and turn-based? Seems weird to me, won't the game run into micro-hell eventually? Would make it more like Civilization, too

    It shouldn't because you have 'move points', there is only so much you can move one turn, so if you have a big empire you have to prioritise where you fight, you cannot fight on all fronts at once with all your army, player has to be smart where he wages war.
    This already makes the game much more tactical than any of the paradox games.

    Honestly this guy is bad at marketing, his marketing is pretty much "Videogame is gud, watch videos to see".

    Dude, fuck videos. Gimme a pile of detailed screenshits, dev diaries, feature descriptions, etc.

    I can't enter his Steam site right now, someone tell him that.

    I mean, how complex this game is?

    Right now its seems like Civilization but in the style of a Pdox game.
