I do have a demo code for this game for being a Project Phoenix backer (go ahead laugh XD).

Still haven't tried it though.

How come Project Phoenix backers got a demo, but Tiny Metal backers didn't? That's kind of strange.

[EDIT] "How", not "Home"!

Pretty honest interview, although this isn't going to look good PR-wise.

http://www.siliconera.com/2017/12/11/tiny-metal-needs-sell-15...

What has been the biggest obstacle for Project Phoenix?
Hiroyuki Yura, Director/Producer: We could actually deliver with a bit more programming, but the fact is, if you read my updates, we aren’t happy with what Airborne Studios (an art outsourcing company used by CIA) delivered. We aren’t happy at all, it looks too cheaply made.

Tiny Metal is about to launch. What was its biggest obstacle during development?
Hiroyuki Yura: We wanted to have multiplayer on release in Tiny Metal, but we couldn’t so we’re going to put it in a free patch a few months afterwards. To me a game is done, when we have multiplayer. This is a situation I don’t like.

If Tiny Metal doesn’t live up to your standards why are you releasing it now?
Hiroyuki Yura: Well, we have a relationship with our publisher, Sony, and we have our promises with our investors. That’s why we need to put it out.

How do you feel about the relationship to the Project Phoenix backers? Aren’t the backers similar to investors, to some extent?
Hiroyuki Yura: Not really, they are not investing. Another thing, what is not acceptable is we have not delivered what the artists wanted. They are lending me their name and their strength and I need to make sure I deliver on the part they want it to be portrayed.

I used to be a violinist. And if someone is selling a CD of my performance, I expect it to be properly mixed, properly recorded, I have proper arrangements, and I have music. If these criteria are not met, I will be very angry and say this is horrible you haven’t prepared anything. It’s the same thing with this. We felt, although we did our best with Airborne, it’s not their fault. In terms of the pipeline, it’s nobody’s fault. It’s my fault because I did not prepare enough money for that failure. I did not prepare enough time for that failure. I accept that. I would never blame the artists or the pipeline.

Look what happened to Inafune-san, he’s a friend by the way. We have lunch every few months. We talk about his experience with Mighty No. 9 and I talk about mine with Project Phoenix. He is regretting what happened because he got it done with the budget he had and a lot of people are disappointed. He didn’t deliver what he wanted to and is full of regret.

How many units of Tiny Metal need to sell to resurrect Project Phoenix?
Hiroyuki Yura: 150,000 units, worldwide on all consoles.

How reasonable is that goal?
Hiroyuki Yura: I think it is a lot of units.

What do you think is a reasonable amount of units for Tiny Metal to sell?
Hiroyuki Yura: Probably 50,000.

How many units do you think Tiny Metal will sell?
Hiroyuki Yura: Probably 100,000.

If you think you will be short 50,000 units, what do you plan to do next as a company?
Hiroyuki Yura: We don’t need to discuss our internal business decisions. There are a lot of things I can’t tell you about. What I can tell you, in general, is this is not the only thing we do. We have other jobs that will basically feed us. That 50,000 [units] would be nice to concentrate on this, but if we can’t do that we can do recordings. We can do other work. We can do programming work for other companies. If we make the right game we hope, it will sell. If we don’t, it won’t sell. Then it will be another challenge to get Project Phoenix’s budget.

Can't wait to read some early comments on this game. With such a surprise release, and absolutely no (big) reviews at launch, I'm a bit scared.

It wasn't a surprise release - it's even been delayed once. It got a 9/10 review from NintendoLife. I don't know what other reviews say/rate it though.

@zitpig
I can say I'm guilty for the release date. It's just that as it wasn't in the "coming soon" section of the eshop, so in my point of view it just popped up this morning (which is cool)

As for the review, I've seen it yeah, and I'm glad it's good! I wasn't expecting a full review just 25mn AFTER I whined about the lack of reviews though. That is some really quick post obscolescence.

I've been looking forward to it for a loooooong time (I wrote above that I was a backer for the failed KickStarter) and am glad it's finally out and got a good score from here. I'll definitely be putting time into it over the Xmas holidays

Can't wait to play this. With all the Fire Emblem love the 3ds got over the last 5 years really left me feeling cold. Not that I mind FE but Advance Wars has always been more my thing. This will finally fill a void I've had for a long time.

So I finally got around to finishing the campaign. Not a bad effort for an Indie game. Personally, it feels unpolished. The intro sequence has a fps problem until about half way through when it smooths out and allows you to skip it. An annoyance to say the least. Voice acting never became a nuisance to me. They also had the Advance wars series to draw from so the number of units and terrain should have been pretty diverse. I felt air and sea battles were sorely missed. It didn't quite scratch that AW itch but it served a purpose until Wargroove shows up.

I picked this up and was a little disappointed. It feels kind of bare bones. Functionally it runs fine, but the lack of map editors, VS, non-story missions (like War Room in Advance Wars) just failed to really hold my interest. They have a solid frame of a game with this, but it needs more content and most customization.

@MegaMari0 I agree entirely.

Yeah, it's close, but it's missing some of the gameplay elements from AW. Still, it's the best we've got for now. So very close, but no cigar.

Hopefully WarGroove will indeed scratch that AW itch.
