[PC] They Are Billions

Anyone else playing this?
They Are Billions Steam
It's a cross between age of empires, left 4 dead and a tower defence. Be warned it's really addictive.
It says it's in early access, but I haven't noticed any major bugs yet. Sometimes your units or zombies get stuck, but doesn't detract from the game.

Slightly cheaper at humble if you want to get it.

I played an alpha I 'acquired' a while back. All of my characters became stuck within minutes. But it was already clearly gonna be awesome and I bought it from the devs with a steam key.

Damn, another one for the wishlist.

Actually, with Early Access things, do the prices usually go up or down once they reach general release?

Each game will state that in the EA box. For this one:

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?
“Early Access will be cheaper than the final release. However, we have not finalized the price for the final release.”

Typically EA is cheaper or the same price. Kickstarted games where they count the EA period as a premium beta access tier are the rare exception.

Might dip in now then. It reminds me a lot of the rebuild game on Android, but obviously on a much bigger scale.

Got to day 88 which is my highest so far. Mind you I'm only playing on 55% difficulty (low/120). Still a fun game and I had a useful terrain layout with a whole side blocked from access. Eventually ran out of room though and expanding was my downfall. Has lots of defense on most of the walls but of course they hit the one place where I had no room to defend.
Tip of the day - don't build warehouses next to walls!

I've not completed a level yet, but I've got to the final wave. That was on 20% I think.
