I've yet to play the demo version, so I'm basing this one on the video feed I saw. But I guess I just had to get it out of my system... The battle phase looks really tedious, to be honest. You basically have your plan for your own units, but after that, you just have to wait and watch the enemy units maul yours. Sure, there might be some stakes at line, but i figure this would get repetitive very fast. If you changed the turn rotation from 'all at once' to 'fastest unit'-2nd fastest unit...' (this could be you-enemy-you or you-you-enemy-enemy or anything depending on stats alone) you'd always have something to do, at least. I liked the idea of being able to fire down missiles, but please tell me there's more actions like this. Say, moving your unit to a gas cloud or an asteroid belt for better cover, or even action point management (spend 10 for getting there, 10 for attack, 20 for evasive maneuvers... (but if you do too much, you wouldn't have energy left for dodging...) I hear there's unit upgrades and stuff, but here I'm only looking at things to keep the battles themselves from becoming a chore. Will write more after playing, sorry if any of this came across as rude or so.

Unfortunately, the video was from V3.0... The download is of V4.0, which fixed a lot of the issues you mentioned. We're also internally testing V4.2 right now, check it out: (You need to make an account at our forum to download the update)

This is definitely something I am looking forward towards. Is there an estimated finish date? Or perhaps even a break down of features that are already done or being considered?

I played the demo and I really enjoyed it:) It looks like the game could be really fun.
Just, please, don't over-promise. The list of features on kickstarter already looks super amazing:)
Also... maybe at least some of the stories will be more cheerful than your last game which left me quite sad and depressed. I liked the characters, though.

So will we be able to pilot one of the robots ourselves, or will it be like an RTS such as Dawn of war, Starcraft, or Supreme commander? or is it a turn based game?

Hi! You command a squadron of mechs in a tactical turn based battle system. You can check out how it works in the demo if you want.

Sorry, I can't make a Japanese version, unless someone in Japan happens to translate Sunrider. :(
