Ya know, the combat seems to be working already pretty nicely. Add a few special effects, and just release a party-on-party combat demo.
I am halfway convinced you'll see your kickstarter soar.
NathanH - I think along with not quite faded out bows we have other things to fix :) This is not a finished game, and we will improve and polish everything. Just a reminder, what we have is an alpha version, and still quite a lot to do until beta.
Special effects are in the plan of course, it's not a simple thing to do. We see them as already finishing touches and we plan to work on them later, there are many more things we need to work right now including interface, buildings functionality etc.

Hello, everyone, if you are interested, there will be an IAmA reddit session today with me (Alexander) at http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/ it's in the list of the upcoming IAmAs on the right, it is at 2PM ET.
11 days and 5000$ to go.
I will hate you all forever and ever if this fails. Please do not make me hate you.
No worries, we will make it and more! :) We sent out yesterday updated press releases to many sites including RPS, sooner or later someone will get interested. Where else would anyone get devs in medieval armor? :) We included those pictures from shooting the video in our press pack.
Seriously what's wrong with RPS? They jabber on about every kickstarter except this one. Did one of you guys make a move on their girlfriends/moms or what?
For what it's worth there's a mention of you in my next update. My contribution may well be worth more than the mention though :D
I swear we don't know their girlfriends or moms :) I don't know, maybe they just don't like any RPGs or medieval settings (hard to imagine but such people might exist! :)) jnx, thank you for both mentioning us and your support!
This deserves RPS coverage, seriously. Hexes, turn-based ... come on!
Well, maybe once we reach our target, then they write about us - small company from Belarus reached their funding goal with no coverage from major gaming sites :) I don't get the republique thing either.

Well, this is getting a bit silly now. Republique received yet another news article. I don't want to say RPS got bribed because that's a nasty thing to say but... yeah. Kinda reminds me of Gemini Rue which got neglected for months.

i don't think i'd mind if the whole charade wasn't a clear moneygrab, taking advantage of pc users to fund their ipadlet endeavor.
Good news, everyone, we got funded!!!
Thank you! Good thing it's still 9 days to go :)
Yay, good news. :) Now I don't care so much anymore about RPS posting about it, although it still would be nice to see this get some broader exposure. I assume this is a relief for you guys.
Thank you! :) yes, it is a relief and the good thing, there is still quite a bit of time left. But yes, broader exposure would be nice :)
Glad you guys have got the funding you needed, hopefully you'll get a good bit more as well to help improve the game further. Nice to have another game to add to the list of Kickstarter success stories.
