This looks like a rip-off of Evil Indie's Battles & Castles (?).

I only read the description, but that game says it is a turned based strategy game, and even mentioned Civilization... ?

Edit: On an unrelated note, do you still play Bug Heroes at all? I remember you from that thread. I loved that game.

I'm just not seeing it at all (and yes, I do own Battles and Castles, which has turn based combat, tile based movement, no real time action elements, totally different art style, different perspectives, etc). The differences should become more clear as we release more details and a trailer

To my knowledge though, the closest thing out there to Heroes & Castles is... well nothing That's one of the reasons we're making it!

Heroes & Castles is all about being immersed inside of a battle that you influence - its just as much a 3rd person action game as it is a strategy or castle defense game. We want you to feel like you're right there part of a huge battle... Its just an awesome experience when you're in the fray alongside your towering giant allies, with your pikemen vanguard and your dwarven musketeers firing away from behind you on your castle walls

And it only gets better when playing co-op!

No beta for this one Good news is we're pretty far along in development, so you won't have to wait very long Hoping to release a trailer soon.

Bug Heroes is great, I'm hopefully it won't be forgotten.

If I understand the Heroes & Castles description correctly it seems possible the Bug Heroes engine is at work here too...

This game looks like bug heroes with more allies, and you being the allies. Looks real great, I say. Can't wait!
