Thanks, mate! It's been a loooooooong road, but we're all incredibly chuffed to have made it to this point. Still a ways to go yet, of course, but the end is at least in sight now. :)

By the way, we've had some other coverage spring up since that one, including this great preview article on Wargamer.com, written by one of our earliest supporters: http://wargamer.com/article/3706/pc-game-preview-exodus-wars-fractured-empire-early-access-preview

Excellent!

I have bought Exodus: Fractured Empire on Steam, so if anyone wants to try it out let me know.

@bertnernie: Here's a demo vid I recorded back in August. The game's improved a lot since then, but it's fundamentally the same game. :)

Fair warning: It's about 25 minutes long. That's 25 minutes of your life you will never get back. ;)

I doubt we'll get to do an iOS version. If our Indiegogo campaign had succeeded, we would have been able to, but with the shoestring budget we had to work with, we had to focus on PCs (Win, OSX, Linux) only.

If the game sells well, we might have the opportunity to take another look at an iOS version, but we can't commit to it right now.

Really looking forward to this. Amazing work! Every time I see what you're up to I am simply awestruck.

Could always circle back around and go for another one when the desktop versions are done. It might be that it's a whole lot easier to sell a KS campagin when the game is complete and you're looking to port. Of course I say that with no insider knowledge ;D

I will get the game for PC. iOS would be great but not really important at this point.

I know this has already been posted twice, but I looked through a half hour lets play video of this game, and I really recommend anyone interested have a look.

They're still working out bugs, but you can really see how the focus on true tabletop gameplay is there.

You can click a place on the map and check your unit's range to an enemy unit from there. That means that just like in a tabletop game, you're not forced to move and then find out if you can shoot.

The move orders are really clear too.

I also like that the AI players go immediately once you're done(a lot of these games takes a while for the enemy to take their turn) so that as soon as you're placed an order, by the time you've selected your next unit you can probably move it too, if you're playing a computer opponent. It makes a much more fluid game.

@GROOV3R
Do you have any plans for people to play by e-mail? What other ways can people play each other?
