Looks pretty cool. Debating getting it early access or not.

I like the premise and also the game design aesthetic. Visually it reminds me a bit of the original Diablo. Bit of an homage to Planet of the Apes (the original) there at the end.

I watched some online plays. Looks fun. Less fast paced than SC.

Hopefully if it gets popular enough they can scale up to include a coop. It would be fun to play with some guys off the forum!!

At the risk of being a "negative Nancy" I'll say that every early access game I have helped with, gets me burned. Some of the time the game gets abandoned and often the game doesn't really live up to the vision. Nowadays I wait.. read.. watch.. and THEN buy.

I jumped on it. Total impulse buy, being a starcraft, sc2, command and conquer fiend and all.

This early in the game I'm having a good time with it. Certainly not up to the same kinda quality as the others listed, but it has a good fun factor to it.

I can tell its gonna be one of those "you WILL die" themes, however, its still worth it to me for the price tag being cheaper than a bar tab for a 2 hr seat at your local pub.
