There was a version before with much better Graphics, I might even have some screenshots of it, but this one here seems to have more sophisticated Mechanics with Heat, Electronics, Droppers and so on. The other was rather usual with base building and stuff.
But it looked nice too.
(Nicer than this by now sans Dropships, though.) But I hope that they continue this one for sure.
You might check out some Spring games, other Variants have almost always some Mechas at least in higher Tech Levels. (Balanced Annihilation, Tech Annihilation, etc. There is even a Star Wars thingy.)
Anyway, lets see what they do, right?
