    Avonaeon from Logic Artists, developers of Codex Kickstarter favorite Expeditions: Conquistador, writes to inform us that their game is set to be released on February 28th, on GOG, GamersGate, Desura and Green Man Gaming. There a bunch of awesome new screenshots of the game available here. Softpedia also did a quick preview, which includes 20 minutes of gameplay footage.


    Their conclusion?

    The only big problem with the game so far is that it’s a little too difficult for me, especially when it comes to the tactical battles, where I cannot manage to win without losing precious men.

    Awww hell yeah. Don't forget to vote for Expeditions: Conquistador on Steam Greenlight.

    Already? Wow! Cool... I guess.

    Can the Codex watch the video and sum it up wrapping up all the useful information and adding some picturesque insanities? Thanks in advance, Codex.

    Running around the map clicking on resources, then getting into fights that are more about bigger numbers than actual tactics. I've already played that before.

    Finally some good news after years of almost absolute decline.

    :incline:

    Won't morgoth it though. I want to check on how stable the release version is first, and proper reviews.

    Cautiously optimistic about this release; although, I suppose the quality of the game will hinge on the writing and world building as the base game looks kinda stale. I can imagine this garnering a similar reception to Omerta.

    The first of the KS games, then? (At least, ones I care about) I'm pretty sure I'll get this on launch if it's not too expensive, since I missed the fund deadline before.

    The screenshots look like they've made some positive improvements to UI and polish since the preview copy.

    FTL was the first, so I guess this is the 2nd of the interesting projects. Unless someone knows of another one that was funded for a decent amount (50k+?) that's been released.

    The combat is definitely more about actual tactics than bigger numbers. Each unit you bring to a fight is a person with a background, personality traits, etc. Treating them as meaty punching bags is a sure-fire way to lose a battle. And the exploration is more about managing your resources rather than just collecting them. You'll need to keep yourself stocked on food and medicine to keep everyone alive and healthy,, and content, as morale plays a big role in how the game plays out.

    Still there is a point here. I like how attacks of opportunity are in and critical hits seems rare, but still I did not see the "raising barricades" skill in action AGAIN. Are there more things you (and more importantly the enemies) do when battles are joined? That is really where I feel the depth of the gameplay is. Also, how do ranged weapons work? Do they have minimum range and penalties to fire point blank, etc?

    I'm not sure what you mean by when battles are joined? And the raising barricades skill, do you mean placing barricades in the preparation phase?
    Ranged weapons are more accurate the closer the target is, and it tapers toward the useless around 18-20 hexes away, but you can still take potshots. There's no minimum range, but firing point blank will trigger an attack of opportunity, so it's best to keep your distance with your ranged fellows.
