Oh my goodness, something that actually looks good! Been wanting devs to go back to 90s/early 2000s isometric graphics since other older styles like ps1 low poly are getting popular again.

This game is still alive, huh? Progress is looking good.

The unit and building designs touch my spirit deep inside.

People will no doubt watch the yuge units and buildings and think 'so cool!'

But I played too much Dawn of War not to recognise pathfinding hell when it's laid bare before me.

I'm not 100% sure about this, but the game's pathfinding seems to be grid-based (vs mesh-based as modern RTS tend to be).
At least all the units seem to line up along an invisible grid-like pattern, bringing me to that assumption.

While grid-based might not look as nice and comes with some restrictions when it comes to stuff like eg free formation rotation, it does make pathfinding and determining which "tile" is blocked or not significantly easier, thus making pathfinding maybe look a bit more clunky, but generally work better.
Or, at least it's much easier to pull that off with a grid- than with a mesh-based approach.

Personally, I prefer the Total Annihilation formula to C&C, but it's nice stuff like this still gets made.
That art truly has a bit of everything. But not necessarily in a bad way. Some of the stuff even reminds me of Final Liberation and now I need to go play it.

Actually looks pretty good, don't see many indie games accurately replication the 90's pre-rendered sprites look. Getting RTS gameplay right though is even harder to do.

Looks great and the buildings look very interesting / different. The artstyle looks distinct for something that uses such old tech. Hope development goes smoothly.

Codex 2016 - The Age of Grimoire Make the Codex Great Again! Grab the Codex by the pussy Codex Year of the Donut Shadorwun: Hong Kong Divinity: Original Sin 2 Steve gets a Kidney but I don't even get a tag.
The only negative thing I have seen so far, is that the infantry sprites look a bit goofy with their huge helmets.

Wishlisted. I love the C&C style of RTS design and love seeing the spins devs put on it. I love the retro art style, I love the almost fully destructible environments, and I love novelties like steampunk dwarfs.

Looks cool. Gives me Original War vibes for some reason, even though Command & Conquer or Total Annihilation is probably a better way to describe the gameplay. I am not a big fan of RTS games anymore, but this could be a retro title worth checking out. I hope for the game to have some nice single-player campaign to go through. Although I am probably being fabulously optimistic here...
