I'm sorry for my scepticism. I'm just a bit blown away by all I see. A little bit of heaven coming my way, already in october! I will certainly buy it.

Hi Foraning!

Thanks for your feedback! You are right, it is very hard to do that project alone. I have been working for more than 3 years now on that game. Surely you cannot expect graphical effects shown in <Empire Total War> but I am sure you will be delighted about game depth and the wide range of game options. I will post another video within the next days showing current graphics status and ui functions.

The game is currently in beta phase, which means there is still a lot of work to do, a lot of bugs to fix. But even after the scheduled release in October I am planning to implement as many user feedbacks as possible, as I already did in the alpha testing phase.

Please follow the news and updates on my homepage:

My god. This game is what I've been looking for since Empire Total War turned out to be such a dissapointment. However, I'm still a bit sceptical about one person pulling all this off. I mean there is so much in your game a Total War game or EU4 is put to shame. Maybe graphics , ui or ai will turn out lackluster.

Your game looks great. I cannot wait to play it. As ever if you need a Beta tester!!
