    what are achievements good for?
    do they translate in monetary value on steam to buy a game from time to time if you are hardcore enough?

    So we know that the aliens will mutate when they are not effective but how is it determined that they are effective? If they manage to hurt the soldiers? By the player failing a mission? By killing Phoenix Point Soldiers (that one is unlikely as there are few of them as far as I hear)?

    Also the only thing I am actually worried about is the budget.

    Is it possible that the underwater battles (from the stretch goals) may later be added as an DLC/add-on?

    Really hope that their will be ways (ingame or by config editing) to be able to turn off shadows, also I hope for DX9 support ;)

    I want to get this sooooo much. But I have to practice self-constraint. :negative:I have too many games as it is.

    Before this game comes out you can play and finish many of those games.

    I swear, it's like these reporters don't even listen to what he actually says. Yes, he did mention RTS games being overshadowed by MOBAs. No, Firaxis did not resurrect that particular genre, RTS games were mentioned as being the reason for the decline of TBS, with MOBAs now doing the same to the RTS genre.

    I was similarly surprised by the PCGamesN article thinking the sea levels would keep rising during the game. Or, for that matter, thinking that Gollop's previous cancelled attempt was for some reason called "Dreamland Chronicles: Phoenix Point".:hahano:

    In all fairness, these interviews were conducted in a noisy environment and then later transcribed to be written up by a third-party. (Source: I was there).

    I haven't been this excited for a game to release in years. I sincerely hope Julian and his team manage to pull it all of, the potential this game has could very well cement it among the greats of the TB tactics genre.
    I think this'll be the first ever KickStarter Fig campaign I pledge to. Incline awaits!

    Barely. It's still linking them together in a very weird way, implying a connection that simply isn't there. If they'd also include the bit with RTS games doing the same to TBS before, that would count as really fixing it.
