Here's why replays will be so good
Every now and then a combination of 80% luck and 20% skill enables me to really look like I know what I'm doing in this game. People watching the replay won't know that the mission they saw me 3-starring was one that I failed completely in the previous 17 attempts!

I'm curious about whether these will be "real" replays as opposed to "replays" in which the game simply plays out the mission again using recorded user input data and an identical AI starting routine. If it's the latter, there can be many glitches and anomalies producing a different outcome from the initial play through. However, if the devs get replays as right as I believe they are getting everything else then we need not worry.

We're working on replays just as we speak, will be the main feature of the next update.

All games use recorded user input for replays, the requirements for recording a video would be too high. Determinism is indeed a ♥♥♥♥♥, and replays may get broken once in a while, but obviously any bug in this department will be fixed before the game comes out.

And because determinism is a ♥♥♥♥♥, replays took us longer than expected, so the next update will probably miss some other features that we were planning, but we're on track now.

Excellent! As I said, if you do replays as well as you're doing everything else, I am confident you will tame the ♥♥♥♥♥.
