The game play can't be that bad. Maybe he wanted to give a taste of what the game is like rather than play for real.

If that video was made by someone who accidentally got the beta version from a Desura preorder before that was fixed, it might be exactly that difficult for him. Because without the manual the mechanics can be rather impenetrable and very difficult to learn and reason out. And the manual was not included in the beta.

EDIT the above:
The Wonderful, Extensive, Helpful PDF Manual created by Edi.
Which is NOW included with the game along with the Wonderful Map Editing manual created by Edi.

And now it looks like the Switches (in usual Illwinter style) could use a manual also

I love this video. For one thing, he is talking it thru.

For another thing, even though he is obviously learning it as he goes and says he did not yet look at the manual, he play it pretty well. There were only a couple of things Id have commented on or corrected. Pretty amazing game player to do such a good video at the learning stage of a game.

He mentioned that he might also do a Dom3 video later. I hope he does

Its hard to get the same sense of a game with an written AAR that a video provides... youtube has ruined me. But i got to say, the Illwinter vibe comes through loud and clear. I don't think ive been looking forward to a game as much as this for years!

Any chance Gandalf of using your connections and seeing if we could get an early look at the manual?

I can answer that. Not happening unless Johan says it's okay. Besides, the manual is still not quite complete and my own personal opinion is that incomplete copies have no business whatsoever being in circulation.

Edi is the author of the manual so its between him and Illwinter.

Personally Id love to see a posting of at least the descriptions of the different nations.

As maybe not the whole game manual, but I would LOVE to see the Map Editing manual posted. Im looking forward to player created Scenarios adding in triggers and timers for global events, in-game quests, more surprising AIs. Im eager to spark some creative thinking along those lines. Not to mention the player-created MapGens like we had with Dom3.
(that manual is Edi's also so same restriction applies)

But I can tell you that both manuals are very impressive work.

Incomplete copies with your name on it have no business whatsoever being in circulation?

I can appreciate that. Just though i would ask anyways - i like reading a good manual. Incidently, an early manual release can be a useful marketing tool...
