  1. I expect most Gollop fans are of the old school variety and the push for this kind of system has been pretty strong. I'd say the thing to watch for is what kind of interface improvements they come up with to improve transparency.
  2. Geoscape & Ballistic Update: https://phoenixpoint.info/blog/2017/8/29/geoscape-ballistics-and-more Interactivity with the geoscape should feel a lot more rewarding thanks to all the different point of interest but this is the best part. That's how you do it, that's the Jagged Alliance way.
  3. I've seen quite a few lets plays of the demo and I don't remember Chris ever complaining or saying anything on the matter so I think I can give you an unofficial "go ahead". It's always appreciated if you take time to explain that these builds are little more than tech demos, like really, really early.
  4. It even has a secret "third party" trying to destabilize the world by pitting world powers against each other. There's some inspiration to be had here for sure if you happen to be working on a strategic planetary defense simulator with covert themes set during the Cold War: http://www.goodshepherd.games/games/phantom-doctrine It's by the Hard West devs, the trailer's pretty crazy.
  5. Chris already made an appearance long ago talking about X1. He's done a really good job staying under 90 since then.
  6. Definitely support the idea plot holes and all. It'd be a real shame not to make use of the Cold War setting in some way in a second game.
  7. It's over with a total of $765,948 of which roughly 320k are investments. Hopefully it's enough to produce something that might be called finished and hopefully sales are good enough to round up them aquatic stretch goals. One advantage is that dev expenses of working in Bulgaria will be much lower compared to Western Europe and beyond. Slacker backer is also a thing so it's not too late to get in on it: https://www.fig.co/campaigns/phoenix-point
  8. There will be ballistics and hit chance in the final game, it's just not implemented yet. Units won't be 100% accurate. I really wish Gollop had clarified that in the vid.
  9. There's a video demonstrating the movement/action system in more detail: As a Jagged Alliance fan I do wish PP had less Firaxis in it. We ended up with level based skills, smaller squads (even though there's no hard cap), minimalistic inventory (from what I see) and no true granular ap system, but that's the world we live in I guess.
  10. The gameplay video is out: There's 2 more days left in the campaign so this will hopefully draw some pledges. I'm skeptical about reaching the 2nd stretch goal but it's certainly possible. The second "rush hour" at the end of a campaign isn't as given as it once was though many people still assume it'll happen. Many game campaigns just fizzle out these days. It's a nice demo, Gollop's less than great at PR and presentation as usual but the Crab Queen is really impressive.
  11. Fig is well known to rpg fans since it's a joint project by people from inXile, Obsidian and others. Pillars of Eternity 2 got 4.4 million on it last time. Main difference is that, aside from traditional pledging, you can also invest money and with a bit of luck get it back with a small profit after the game launches.
  12. Sadly the funding's nowhere near I was hoping it'd be at by now but it was to be expected I suppose without the X-COM name and Gollop not being as well known to the general gaming public. Hopefully there can be an "aquatic expansion" down the way. I'd really hate for that whole aspect of the game to just fall by the wayside, it's a big part of the setting.
  13. If you hadn't you'd have to shoot yourself for insubordination, there'd be maple syrup all over the walls.
  14. At least you'll have an excuse to get drunk again.
  15. It has begun: https://www.fig.co/campaigns/phoenix-point?media_id=207#about One thing that caught my eye are these missions with specific objectives that also require special equipment to complete.
