This has got to be the most innovative thing I've seen in a game in like the last few years. Too bad it's still pretty early in development though :/

I saw that earlier last week. I so don't wanna play it. My mind will be exploded from thinking about parallel universes and messing with time and dimensions.

It's a cool idea. Just brainhurt.

Are we expecting to see some Ralin hax strategies? I am going give it a try ^_^

Thanks for the heads-up.

That seems to be a little confusing, hopefully by the time they get into the later development stages they can make it easier to manipulate and easier to understand.

I didn't see the point to the timeline, simply because once a fight happens in the past, you will always continue to fight and send units into that time period. That would make for a long game, especially since you can change the outcome of the previous battle.

If I understood correctly

Build unit
Send unit back in time
Now you have 2 units

??

^: Yes, however, if you try to alter the past unit's actions such that it does not go back in time (e.g. use it to attack), the version that went into to the past will spontaneously cease to exist when the time wave carries over changes made.

This game will either be friggen awesome, or crash and burn. I like the idea, and seems like it could really mind rape you. I didn't get the "build a unit in the future so it'll be in the present" at first, but I wrapped my brain around it and understood.

It'd be kinda weird though when you destroy something in the past. What if by destroying a unit training camp in the past, you are unable to build in the future to prevent an attack from the present. Let's say the other enemy teleported to the past during the present's attack. Would all your units in the present built by that unit factory suddenly dissapear or something?

...I....sdfsafasdfads mindFFFF. I still like the idea though.
