I'm kinda finding myself wondering how the game is played. Maybe a little more description of the game mechanics and strategy? The visuals are great though.

Hi, yes very good point. We are going to post a game play walk through which is probably the best way to to describe/explain the initial mechanics and strategy. I will reply here when the video is ready. (2 weeks or so)

The basic concept is that you build your "rig" pre-match and you can then build various items (wall, turrets, fences, mines, etc... much more later) in game to either defend your position or advance your position against other players. The initial game will be focused on "capture points" and/or defend a base. There is some AI that gets tweaked up/down based on the number of players there are on a given "area" or map.

The first iteration of the game will be fairly simple but we are planning on building it out over the next 5+ years. Early user feedback will be super important. We have the framework of the game sorted out but there is a lot of room for user feedback.

Small steps

Thanks for the question.
