I'm not sure I understand why this is considered an RPG.

It was described as so in the email from the developer. I don't have time to check out every new game submitted to me.

Edit: I'm also changing the RPG TO SRPG to save myself from replying to future posts about this.

Looks kinda cool. Maybe I'll try the demo later. Can't get more than 10kb/s from his server right now. Thanks for the heads up.

Edit: Got a decent DL speed. Played a battle. Got my arse handed to me, as I couldn't figure out how to shoot at first. Doesn't seem bad, though. I'm a sucker for tactical squad-based stuff, turn based or WeGo. Didn't feel very steampunky, though. Felt more like WWI, which isn't a bad thing as far as I'm concerned. Not sure if other stuff is in the main game, as the demo just appeared to be a single battle, but I'd sure like to get one of those airships into a fight. I'm also a sucker for dirigibles. Like the title.

Please stop assuming the worst possible interpretation of my questions. I just wanted to understand why it's considered a RPG.
