    Concept sounds interesting, but I cannot help but notice it doesn't actually exist and therefore remains vaporware. They really ought to work out the entire nonexistence issue first.

    I think I saw some folks on the official forums who claimed they'd already been playing it (not in the pirate but in the official early tester sense).

    That said, a Slitherine/Matrix games slated for release on Steam, XBoxOne and PS4. What has the world come to?

    Finally someone attempting to make good use of the setting/IP. Not as good as they could have* but this has potential. Especially that they are using the colonial bickering as a gameplay element. Worried about the mention of consoles, that never ends good.

    *Ideally for a strategy game you could do a 4X/Grand Strategy set a hundred or more years before Cylons. A game of military and economical conquest, proxy warfare, subterfuge and alliances. The old imperial powers of Virgon and Leonis holding to their old glory, Caprica's rise to power, the growing importance of secondary colonial powers such as Picon, Tauron, Canceron or Scorpia.

    That's because it's vaporware. Nothing but fake news.

    Was their previous game Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy any good?

    Have you played this? I wonder if that wouldn't be better than they would make.

    Game doesn't look too shabby, but I thought it would be more about starfighters not capital ships.

    in general matrix/slitherine don't make announcements like this if they are not already far along into the development process. They don't generally announce vapor ware on their front page-- so this game exists imo, and is likely already playable... the only real question will be about if it is actually a good game or not.

    I like that it is wego, and so far it appears promising, so I will follow along and hope for the best.

    I wonder how long that tutorial is and if Tylium is used as a resource for jumping (it should be). That would create some interesting choices between jumping, production or rushing production.

    The system map looks a bit poor, but maybe the models are placeholders.

    Death toll 50k is rather low for orbital bombardment, but I guess the Cylons are kind of short on plutonium for their nukes at this point and just bombed the target of strategic value on Picon.

    Turnbased in a game that's focused on fights with Battlestars? Combat can only be impressive in realtime with fighters flying everywhere with dogfights, attacks and counterattacks. Imho needs realtime to make optimal use of the franchise. The setting alone is way to barebones for turn based combat.

    Will it start off promising then end up utterly shit, like the series?

    Interesting. I do like the fact it is using the older Galactica setting. Loved seeing those old Cylon base ships. Neat!

    Is there no Z-axis usage? I couldn't find it. Always a bit baffling when space games don't use it, but it happens quite often.

    the other games in this engine have 7 z levels
    so you stack ships on top of each other to max frontal dps
    it doesnt matter otherwise though, you drive with slowest speed towards the biggest enemy dps dealer and kill him

    while the engines shtick is limited degree of rotation and fire arc like in sails
    it will not being used to any meaningful gameplay consequence

    the warhammer game had multiplayer so someoen who played it might now more
    but my guess is that its even worse there, all kinds of special abilities etc nullifying arcs of mov and shooty
