As you might have read, the game is 100% turn-based, combat & movement. There was a thought to make it real time but i never understood the combination of grid movement & real time combat i.e. EOB or Grimrock.
The game is trying to be a mix of Eye of the Beholder and Might and Magic 3-5. However, the combat can be very fast to resolve or slow, depending on players. Not faster than MM3-5 battle, but fast enough.
I don't like phase systems (Grimoire i believe?) where one has to prepare many actions before the action, as i find it slow. It could be possible to cache actions, but are not implemented yet.
