Fuzion: A word puzzle RPG (sneak preview)

Hi guys,

As some of you already know, I've been working on a game that I feel is pretty unique. I wasn't going to make a thread about it until a little closer to the release date, but hearing a few speakers today at GDC has inspired me to change my mind about this.

Here is a link to some of the music from the game: http://nerdtracks.com/fuzion.html

Here are a couple of screens that I hope you'll find interesting!

Believe it or not it's a word game...

With some rpg elements to give it some some flavor

I'll be posting some screens that show off the UI for text input later on in this thread.

Sha.Zam. I'll take anything with great graphics and an RPG twist. This looks great.

Well...I was told that the name might be an issue because it's vague and not catchy enough, so I was considering having it changed. It's a shame to let the logo artwork go to waste though

I like the interface, and the premise (anything combined with RPG elements is of instant interest to me). It's hard to really judge the name without much more context, though, but at the moment I'm not completely behind it. It sounds too... futuristic, maybe? for what the game appears to be.

Just my initial impression, though. Sorry to criticize without any helpful suggestions.
