Live And Let Zwei: Cyber-Wing 

Browsing through the recently released demos, Cyber-Wing caught my eye, mainly because it claims inspiration from the generally-credited-with-father-of-RTS game Herzog Zwei. To modern PC-eyes, it's more like the games like Hostile Waters and (the relatively modern) Battlezone than what we think of as an RTS, based around building units, then controlling them as you go out to kick ass. I haven't had a chance to play it yet, but in terms of influences, that's quite the caliber. The demo can be found here, and there's a whole more info on their site. I especially like the nervous disclaimer of "Cyber-Wing is not a sequel to Herzog Zwei nor is affiliated with TechnoSoft or Sega. It is no more similar to that game as Call of Duty is to Counterstrike." Its price? Five dollars. Crikey. Anyway - video follows.

Anyone played? Thoughts? And five dollars?
