Something New

This game is great, especially the effort put into it, it's amazing that it's free. However, after playing for about an hour the buggy user interface became a massive problem. Not sure if they use some kind of queue for the events in the programming or something, but the clicks seem to either be delayed -- on short intervals or long ones. This makes the "turns" very slow and laggy, and sometimes when you attempt to do an action to someone on your team the action simply does not work, or you end up applying it to the wrong team-member because of the sluggish interface. Time to time it seems the Load Game or Save Game interface pops up randomly when I left click on my mouse while the cursor is near the middle of the screen. Some of the enemies' grid positions are a bit off, and you have to click near the head with the enemy's ryders, otherwise no action is applied.

The game is great in general, but the developers really need to improve the performance and fix these problems. Other then that, I would recommend this game to someone who likes SCI FI Anime-ish type of games.

This seems to apply on Linux systems, or atleast the Linux 3.13.0-32 kernel.
