This one looks interesting to me. I remember you guys posting about it before. Does anyone know if combat is turn based or real time with pause to issue commands or what? I didn't see mention of it on their website.

Danke, if you know.

Big words for such a small game. Don't expect much from it, because these kind of games generally end with disapointment.

Capt. Huggy Face:
You can watch this video to see the combat system. It seems like a real time action combat system, but I'm not so sure. It can also be a turnbased system.

Nifty, wasn't expecting this to arrive this year at all. I'll stalk it out a bit and see how the initial impressions go---here's hoping!

Thanks for the video link, Goky. Looks pretty good. Looks like Starfleet Command, which is cool by me, as long as I can pause….and issue commands while paused. :p
