My only concern is whether there may be too much going on at once on such a small screen, but I'm willing to give it a try to find out.
I guess, yeah, there's a distinct JRPG feel to things. Heh, my artist tend to err on that side as much as I keep telling them to avoid it. If you're referring to the gameplay trailer, I think that's mostly because Brian cut it that way. It's really not too bad each round.

Could you guys try making a DLC-type buyouts for this game, so that I can download the full game and move it to my MacOS in my Macintosh laptop? Every indle company did it, even Frictional Games(The creators of Amnesia: The Dark Descend and Penumbra trilogy).

Speaking of your question if noticing the J-RPG feel, that's because the way how you created the sprites and the way how you drew your characters are most likely of the J-RPG feel. The W-RPG goes only for HD and 3D games, such as The Witcher, Baldur's Gate: Shadows of Amn, etc.
I'm not certain of what you mean, to be honest. Steam runs on Macs right now so I'm not sure why you need to transfer it over..

Strange as it may sound.. the design direction I gave for the sprites were with Baldur's Gate in mind, along with Masters of Magic - the idea of having an army in one box. Ah, I miss Baldur's Gate.. it had so much character. I've always been one for 2D rather than 3D.

I don't understand the attraction to that series.

However. the actual ingame art made me think of MoM. God I miss that game and that's reason I'll be picking up this game whenever you release it.

BTW, if you want to multi-quote just "quote" the people you want in another window and cut & paste.
To be honest… I really don't like the whole franchise, save Tactics. Found most of it ridiculous. I only enjoyed Tactics for its gameplay and DIFFERENCE from the usual FF stuff.

Heh. Masters of Magic. Awesome.

Cheers for the tip!
