    Sounds great. I am confused about the 'time-based resolution' bit though. What does that mean?

    Sounds to me like it's either:

    1) Some sort of high granularity turn-based system where actions can take more than one turn (so like, while you're preparing your plasma rifle to fire, the enemy can get off two shots with his laser pistol)

    2) Not actually turn-based but something like Frozen Synapse.

    Fantastic in every respect---if the first game was them nodding at least a bit at Darklands, then this one might as well be nodding at the sum of Shadowrun games among others.

    Not super familiar with Frozen Synapse but yeah something like that. I think the closest thing is something like Grandia

    ?

    I didn't know you were into jRPG's.

    Though what you posted is simultaneous turn-based (with asynchronous turns). What they're describing sounds like something else - delayed execution of a turn order. I.e. order character to cast spell - three turns pass before spell is cast. Or what Infinitron said:

    I'm not, Joe told me that was the game that inspired the combat system when describing it to me initially. They're asleep atm so I don't think they'll mind if I jump in and answer some questions.

    It's isometric with a fixed perspective, the camera perspective is familiar to pretty much everyone. The character models are 2D though.

    Oh ok. Well it is actually a pretty nifty combat system - although quite ambitious to design compared to your usual turn-based combat system.

    You're aware of when they sleep? [​IMG]

    You're getting heavily invested again, aren't you?

    Yeah I don't know of many games that use it, so it'll be interesting to see how well it ends up playing to the strengths of the medium.

    So, 3d gameworld ( maps ) with 2d character models + fixed perspective ?

    Kinda like the opposite to shadowrun ( 2d maps + 3d character models + fixed camera ) ?
