Anyone here intending to play this?

It's gone into pre-order (with beta play available immediately)

Years ago I used to play a turn based game called Steal Panthers WW2. I used to play with another bloke via email. I really enjoyed waiting to see if you had anticipated their next move correctly. I may have a look at this one.

Just pre-ordered last night and played a few rounds in the beta. It's fun and has a major positive point in my opinion; that I can potentially play with southern hemisphere TOGgers!

In game name is the same as my forum name if anyone else is in the beta.

Arrr, the classic "Turn Based FPS" idea. Been quite a few games like this over the years but they usually had more interesting themes. The standard cookie-cut FPS fluff isn't really selling me on it though, I think they missed some fun opportunities with the visual style and sound of the game.

Yea, I grabbed a pre-order, played for a bit, but stopped, the game is far from complete in my opinion. It's not bad, it shows a lot of promise, and the developer's entusiasum is promising. There has been a recent patch to fix some of the problems, I haven't looked at it yet, but I think a lot more systems need to be implemented to make the game more interesting.

If you fancy trying out the update mate, send me a challenge in game. My username is the same as my forum name.

Look forward to it,
Pav

Accepted your challenge mate.

Turn three and we are already down to 1v1!

Thanks for the game Jakob. Stopped your seven-win streak. Was touch and go between the two shotguns there. I would have thought your extra cover would have given you the kill in that exchange.

Yup, well played mate.

I'll set up a challenge to return the favour!

Yeah, not sure what went on there.......It was also confusing for me as the blood splat on the floor behind your guy (and the fact that he disappears when my guy dies) made me think that it had been a simultaneous kill. (Hence my comment about 1v1 and my lack of preparation for that guy coming after me!! )
