Anybody know anything about this new turn based empire strategy game, released on Steam yesterday?

The list of features looks interesting:

<table style="width: 720px;" class="style12" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td class="style19">A strategic world-map consisting of over 500 regions and 100 cities. Play as one of 45 nations, ranging from US to Malta on maps covering all of Europe and North Africa
</td></tr><tr> <td class="style19"> Strategic and tactical gameplay modes
Play an entire campaign including both strategic and tactical game-play modes, or fight in combat focused skirmish.
</td> </tr> <tr> <td class="style19"> 20 customizable units
Equip your units with a vast assortment of upgrades. Do you upgrade your infantry with guided anti-tank missiles? Or do you suppress the enemy with mortar fire? Perhaps even both? The choice is yours and the options are endless.
</td> </tr> <tr> <td class="style19"> Research and development - Weapons of mass destruction?
The research system letīs you develop military technology upgrades for your units but also missile technology as well as your choice of weapons of mass destruction. Attack your opponents with Biological. Chemical or Nuclear weapons.
</td> </tr> <tr> <td class="style19"> Dynamic tactical battlefields
Dynamically created battlefields where weather and day/night-cycle effects the outcome.
</td> </tr> <tr> <td class="style19"> Advanced diplomacy system
An extensive political system with multi-nation negotiations. Form alliances or start wars, sign or refuse to sign treaties against weapons of mass destruction or use them to trade
</td> </tr> <tr> <td class="style19"> Covert Operations

And the trailer makes it look like a game that RPS people would love:

I'm very interested, just waiting to hear some impressions before I purchase.

Some Steam forum people have played it: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1925079

I dunno. That's a pretty penny for an out-of-nowhere game which may be kinda decent.

I always forget Steam has its own forums. Sounds like it'll be a purchase for me... when the price goes down. Pride of Nations looks to keep me busy in this semi-genre till then.

It looks interesting, but that's a very unfortunate name (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stormfront_(website)) they chose.

It is an extremely poor choice of name. I have a copy here actually, I'll try and play it soon.

I wonder if the AI is any good
