Has anyone played shadow empire in any depth?

It seems to  tick all my boxes for an epic cup of tea, chin scratching immersive game - elite forces, war in the Pacific sized map, spies, RPG elements for army commanders - it looks great

Sweet. It's been on my wish list for awhile now.

Somewhere, somehow, I woke up in the wrong timeline. I'm pretty sure this isn't even my dimension.

if you guys see stuff coming up and want an advance look at it, I can probably get you one, if you're willing to write something about it for us :)

It’s by the guy that did advanced tactics huw - it’s not pretty but the gameplay looks great - there are some let’s plays by dastactic but I trust you guys here more

I like that you don’t research directly - there is a research council you work with and you tell them the projects you require, and there seems to be many councils that deliver missions and advice, a complicated in a good way supply system, skill sets for leaders, your planets history and stats  - it honestly looks great

I think I’ve talked myself into it!

Have you seen my wishlist?  And that's after an extensive pruning session I carried out earlier today!

Yeah, I add shite to my list and then months later see it and wonder what the heck I was thinking.

I do this with my board game collection at times, too. :)
