FUTURE PLANS


OK, so this update was the big hurdle, update wise. As of this update, all nations have their balance of unique buildings and units. As you can see there's no change in unit costs that I've said will be in this update. This was saved for the next update which will be focused entirely on re-balancing nations, units and the rest of the game.

After THAT update hits, I'm gonna try and organize some playthroughs so we can playtest the game. I got some friends that would come and play but I'd be great if we could get more ppl into the group and organize some matches!

Here's the link to the Steam group and stay tuned for the next update (it's gonna come a lot faster than this one..):
