Half a million dollars, and they're just reskinning XCOM.

How else do you expect turn-based combat to work? This is how turn-based combat has worked since the dawn of... turn-based combat.


I expect it to work using SR mechanics?

I don't expect:
new abilities with an arcade flavour (seriously, wtf is with full auto?)
spell drain replaced with cool down
health monitors replaced with hitpoints

No. I will not be making any comparisons between a post apocalyptic role playing game with multiple tiers of conversation, morales and paths to a futuristic tactical strategy title.
I will however be drawing a large coincidental line from a futuristic tactical strategy shooter title, to another futuristic tactical strategy shooter title that recently did really really well on the market.

Also, at 6:14 the developer calls it Overwatch. So there's that.

Oh god... right... 2 mill.. *vomits*

People complaining about it being combat focused should be more concerned about the complete lack of depth to the gameplay outside of combat.

It's going to be a decent game, I'm sure, but frankly I'm not impressed.
There are cool elements, the graphics are sweet, and the concept of an editor is also cool. I also love the music which is all paying homage to the SNES Shadowrun (seriously, listen closely).
Great little tactical shooter. Two million dollar Shadowrun? Meh. The curse of Gitelman reigns.
