    it looks like fucking garbage
    there seems to be zero tactickewl gameplay
    it looks like that survival game where you grind for plastic bags so you can hold wires and pocket lint in them...
    only this one will have idiotic writing cause, really, 'i use myself as decoy' or 'let my men deal with that' is a lightyear below even choice-of games

    I feel like this concept would be a lot cooler if you played as a deserter.

    It looks pretty awful (and retarded). Does the "main brain" even know what "tactics" stands for?

    Actually, one of the designers told me on the Steam forum that the game was mostly a tactical one(where you command a few platoons or squads?) on a hex map. The events can be triggered depending on the opponents nearby, the terrain, ...

    It is pretty hard to judge before seeing a proper let's play, but it could be a pretty interesting mix of CnC and tactical gameplay, or just a glorified COYA, depending on the core gameplay itself.

    There is a tiny chance that they manage to meme Unity of Command, so that their tiny scale maps actually play tactikewl but from whats seen in the trailer, its gonna be straight grindy infantry clicker.

    Will there be an Eastern Front DLC where I can rule through terror alone using blocking detachments and threatening soldiers about sending them to penal battalions?

    Best of luck to the developer. It's quite a challenge to make a game based off a book, and it seems to be going with the correct ideas and mentality!

    Did Avellone clone himself or something? :D Seems like he is working on every other game.

    Hmm. They sure talk about the (A)SL inspiration on several occasions. Seeing the sser's signature (late-thanks for the Phoenix Point interview :salute:), I wonder why they're not mentioning the Close Combat series though. Perhaps because that TB aspect...

    As for the German side - from the facebook comments:
    Just in case, there was also a short RPS preview some time ago (June 30th, probably nothing new):

    "Our Inspirations: Band of Brothers"

    *Puts Cpt. Winters on the cover* Yep....

    Graphics do look kinda shit(at least, not much better than 15 year old CC). Here's hoping that palette improves. Maybe that's not the point though. Everything else sounds INTERESTING.

    I just hope you'll be given more than two choices during crisis events.

    Multiple choices done right (from Spectrum Holobyte's 1991 Crisis in the Kremlin)

    The decisions themselves sound interesting, but I am not a big fan of these metagame decisions that encourages you to pick depending on how you want to advance your character instead of which outcome makes the most sense to you in a given context.

    That said, it could work if the stat adjustments are minor compared to the outcome of the decision, and if it works like PTSD (aka folly points), aka the most efficient decisions having a cost on your soldiers sanity and yours.

    The last option is to have these purely as reputations: after all, people also do minmax their reputation willingly irl (ie, make decisions only because that will make them appear under a certain light).

    Our Inspiration: Crusader Kings II:
    After hard and intense fighting, your platoon managed to capture a german village, what would you do:
    Intrigue: Report your commander above your superiors about your success and present commander as indecisive
    Wroth: Burn the village
    Gluttonous: Send your men to sweep the village and hog their rations
    Lust: Let boys have some fun! Introduce those hun wenches to the seed of Freedom!
