    Reprisal is a strategy gaem that's trying to get greenlighted on Steam. They're putting the game out for free for 24 hours for the reasons listed below:


    The gaem has generally gotten a good reception so well worth downloading and giving them a thumbs up. From what I guess there's around dozen or so hours left to download this so get it now.

    Stuck in a throwaway forwarder I think though the javascript less nature of things might have bypassed the issue.

    Gave it a spin, I am a reasonable Populous fan and could see myself getting on well with this.

    tried the first two levels, seems to be an 8-bit style RTS game along the lines of AoE/AoM. I'll have to try this when I go home on my own computer instead of my gf's MBP.

    Would you buy this game if it was available on Steam?

    Um....no, they've already give it to me free :creep:

    After watching a review of the game, I feel I'm more likely to buy this game than any next generation console games. It's like the rush to push out more powerful consoles is futile for people like me.

    I got this game from a humble bundle or indie gala or something. It was alright but I never got into it. Didn't really test it enough though.

    Good thing they're independent. If they were under a publisher, they could face a serious... indemnification.

    Also, a reprisal.

    Is it still up? Because I can only see the buy option... Guess the 24 hours already went by, seems pretty interesting though, I love the song.

    Finally got around to completing it.

    Kind of broken at later levels as some of the rather cheap spells/moves when combined with the standard AI basically amount to a "press here to win" button.

    Still it reminded me why I like populous, dungeon keeper and the like.

    The "always zoomed in" mechanic was an interesting one.
