Hi AProne, Whoa. You do have a talent for coming up with unusual and innovative concepts. This one fits both labels. Time travel as a game mechanic would never have occurred to me. I imagine there is an almost infinite number of possible solutions, and ways to optimize your play to no end. On a similar note, the turn-based mechanics appeal to me as well. I've long had a passion for turn-based tactical games, the sort of thing played by sighted people in titles like Steel Panthers: World at War or the recent indie release Frozen Synapse. This is perhaps more of a puzzler than those games would be, but the groundwork seems to be there. Thanks for such a great new toy to play with. Best, Zack.
