    I don't think it will, developer said said there will only be 8 characters. I don't think these characters will be able to change class or builds. The combat might have depth though.

    There are more than 8 characters, 22 classes in total. Also firemblemish singleplayer campaign, push/throw, dynamic terrain, a map, character and skill editor that allows for online coop campaigns, online 2-6 player battles. I have been stalking Craig for a while and the game is shaping up quite nice.

    The only thing that may put people off is that the game is fully deterministic. 0 RNGesus.

    EDIT: Apparently a bit of RNGesus has been added for a couple of characters with Dodge, but it's a perk and very character-specific.

    Here, have a buttload of videos: https://www.youtube.com/user/SinisterDesigner/videos?shelf_id=3&sort=dd&view=0

    Greetings, Codex-dwellers! I've been encouraged to update this thread, so here is a shit-ton of info on what I've done in the game since May:

    June update
    July update

    August update

    As you've probably deduced, I post these updates once a month--you can always find the latest ones here: http://sinisterdesign.net/category/gameupdates/

    Also, to answer that months-old question: the game is built on a deterministic core, but certain characters have a chance to dodge (which can always be defeated by mental attacks, shoving them into liquid, or hitting them with slowed or blinded status). Additionally, certain characters have the option of using non-deterministic attacks. (These attacks are always optional--they offer the player the option of taking a chance of missing in exchange for the possibility of a more powerful effect if it hits.)

    This looks really cool. March 2015 looks to be quite promising. I love tactical games, and will certainly give this one a try.

    Chicagoland's Craig Stern himself! Best fortunes with the upcoming release, it's looking fantastic. I hope your streets aren't as snow-destroyed as ours these days.

    Looking forward to the title since the KS pitch – even though, I'm more in the non-deterministic camp.

    I'm kind of glad he went with determinism. Attacks don't have to be random in every game.

    Looks like another developer I'll be visiting at PAX East. This year is turning into a much better year to be at PAX than last year. I'll be slaving away at my keyboard again to bring you... um, fine distinguished men and trans ladies more cRPG news. :salute:

    If my writing and comedy skills were anything short of abysmal I'd take one and write for the Codex. I'll just have to wait.
