    X-Com like combat with HOMM-like exploration.
    Shit looks quite interesting, hopefully it will get funded

    Now on kickstarter:

    These guys just funded a kickstarter for another game (The Way) like a month ago and now they are doing another?

    Not fishy at all. No sir.

    Well actually they are pretty different entity than PlayWay, they are just using their help, since company registered in most of Europe cannot start a kickstarter. :)

    Post this on the GRPG forum (even if not an RPG) to get it more exposure. I like the look of it - may back it when some funds roll in.

    Thank you very much for interest, posting and backing!!

    PlayWay is allowing us to use their KS, that's all (as Dagobert explained - otherwise it's very problematic for europeans except for UK).


    Should you guys have any questions, inquiries, whatever - let me know, I'll be glad to let you know directly.

    Best regards

    Looks pretty cool.
    Though if they're going to hit their goal, they gotta generate some buzz pronto.

    Damn, that's a setting I'm really looking forward to!

    It's Steam only? Any chance to get a drm-free copy from the kickstarter?

    Does anybody know what's up with this CAD abbreviation after the price tag?

    Silly me, should have known that's a currency abbreviation. I guess since it's kickstarter I still had in my mind that's USD only...

    One thing I like about Kickstarter is how almost every Kickstarter project gives into backer demands for a DRM free version.

    Ouch, only slightly more than 2K dorras after the first day. This game is going to need a real publicity push if it's going to get funded. Right now the oulook for success is so low it will turn away potential backers.

    Do you have melee weapons or is it all about the guns?

    Looks different enough to interest me. Not to mention that I'm geniunly intrigued by the whole Wierd West and Deadlands vibe they've got going on. Pledged.

    Hey, Infinitron even though I'm guilty of being potato, I'm completely unrelated to CFG or PlayWay, however I agree with You that it would be better the way You posted it.
    Shit, I wonder how it is possible that they only got 2500 $ so far, Kacper Szymczak , maybe try contacting Brian Fargo, Chris Avellone and other famous people from kickstarter, to say some good words about your game.

    Give the rpg elements way more exposure. Trying to sell it as a tb tactical game will limit its appeal to the mass. TB tactical games are already somekind oversaturated and a smaller target audience than rpgs anyway.

    Well I did my part but this seriously needs a lot more publicity if there's any chance of it being funded. Shame since the concept is pretty great

    Skirmish, not tactical. Also, oversaturated? Do you live in some alternative reality?

    No harm intended, but nobody I'm refering to will care about your narrow definition. There is only strategy, tactical, turnbased, realtime and realtime with pause.

    As for Saturation: SR, Blackguards, that X-Com clone, Expedition Conquistador, Ghost Control Inc, the nth iteration of Kings' Bounty, another JA clone and probably some others I missed, didn't care or went completely under someones radar because they are too grognard to have some exposure.

    Generate some buzz - highlight RPG elements. It looks amazing, but it needs some exposure. I don't know how that's done, however.
