Hey All!

First dev diary is up on youtube! It a little rough around the edges and I need to remove "um" from my vocabulary but is at least a decent start. As always feel free to leave comments or suggestions.

Enjoy! - CJ

I love isometric games and this one looks good. But why let it go for free? I'd pay for a game like this

Thanks very much Mjicah!
It is entirely possible that at some point in the future I would charge money for it, but that would only be at a stage where I felt it was a more complete product that I was proud of.
Also as this is essentially a side project and not my full-time job, it doesn't feel right to me to charge for something that isn't being 100% supported. I want to do right by anyone that plays my games :)

the game appears to have controller support, but is it also mouse driven when you're in the base building part?

Yeah, I'm trying to support both methods of play, but right now it is a slightly awkward hybrid when using the controller due to some UI limitations. For now any UI menus need a mouse but the rest of the game can be played with a controller. The keyboard and mouse can be used without a problem. I'm hoping to get that fixed up as soon as possible but it is somewhat dependent on unreleased UE4 features. Thanks for the question!
