Default Dominions clone ?

A game still under heavy development. Being made by a hobbyist. Judging by what 'features' page says, it's going to be quite different from Dominions, but the screens look curiously similar:

Which is perhaps not suprising, because - judging by comments - the author heard about Dominions.

* Simultaneous “wego” turns
* Historical unit roles and tactics
* Both heavy and light units are tactically useful
* Units grouped and moved in divisions, forming battle lines
* Maneuver and flanking
* Morale based melee results
* Meaningfull terrain and deployment
Sounds promising if he ever manages to finish it. I'm definitely going to keep my eye on it.

Not much of a Dominion clone, but yeah, it looks very cool.

It would seem that, though the turns are simultaneous, the battles are commanded personally, rather than dominion's hands-off approach.

Other points are that it uses hexes, not Dom's randomly shaped areas. Finally, it seems to have a larger emphasis on the squad part of the game than dominions.

It does look good, however. I am looking forward to more news on it!

Actualyl no, this game reminds me of City States: Stone to Steel. I think the dev "stole" the idea from there. That game was cancalled like 2 years ago sadly.

Isn't that the neo pangaea map in the images?

Did Jasper use the nickname 'Sunray' or Sunraybe'? That was the first thought that popped to my mind about his name, but it doesn't seem to be so.
