    Yes, of course. But look at the current state of the game in BB4: I estimate more than 50% of promised/planned features are not implemented/explained yet. At best they need another full year (I think more) of development, or step back with a lot of things. I not longer trust them at all, especially after the "Epic affair".

    In fact, we've seen most of these in the January blog post on Phoenix Project bases.

    Does it really matter when there will be 1 year long beta courtesy of Epic store?

    I mean really... is this a surprise for anybody around here by now?

    I know that a lot of people (myself included) will probably not like the level of micro management we've added to the game. [...] but there will probably be a lot of micromanagement in the final game.

    Solomon's first version of revamped x-com had micromanagement until testers decided this type of game is not fun for their representative market taste.
    Why Pheonix Point would not share the same fate?
    Because Gollop is in charge instead? hmmm

    But fret not. We will still have riders with horned helmets on hellish war-dogs if the game is steadily dumbed down along the line.
    And even if Gollop is right-minded, he will be forced to cut out complex game mechanics if development drags too long.

    I like to think that he took Epic Store money offer because he did not want to abandon his vision of a complex game with micromanagement (take this term with a pinch of salt because nowadays generation thinks even wiping the shit around the ass-hole is micromanagement, thus not swell.)

    Well, I guess hope will only die at around 30 hours of game played after official release. :)
    Scrap that... the bugs at release for this game will be glorious. Only masochists and daredevils should play it at release :)
    Or the game will be so dumbed down by then that bugs that derive from complex game mechanics would be nowhere to be found.

    Phoenix Point development in a nutshell: "few ideas, but confused".

    Perhaps the Epic "affair" was the only way to fund that additional year of work?

    Before "Epic" they never talked about financial problems. On the contrary they seemed very satisfied in this regard, in many interviews and statements.

    I think that at this point, we can safely and unironically call this sort of thing "Epic fail"

    Frankly I don't give a crap to this "guess the mutation" 4 yrs old silly game, but I'd like to see implemented the background interface (original concept) instead of the atrocious current UI, as for pretty much everything else.

    this monster is called "admin privilege" and the shit in tail section is the ban hammer mutation.
    this monster will appear in the game after you logged into the game at least once and after you have something critical to say about it on the internets.

    when encountering the monster in the tactical mission, if it hits just once any player assets, the game automatically uninstalls and you have to wait to play it again when it releases on Steam.
    so killing it without any damage and in one turn is paramount.

    I haven't followed the development of PP to closely in the last couple of months, but I am pretty sure that this has not been posted here before:

    So underwater missions will come, thinking about you Alienman (or more precise your avatar)

    The underwater missions stretch goal was never met. The floating base was funded through post-campaign sales outside Fig and confirmed as a free post-launch DLC at that point.

    But why would you ever take one to occupy limited flyer space when you could take another rifleman instead?
