Got a promo email from this developer yesterday, looks engaging.

I might sense a moistening of the loins.

So many games, so little time, but I'll be keeping an eye on this one.

This is from Keppelmuller, the Seven Years War guy.  I bought his last game but it's still part of my gaming backlog.

Last game was plausible, and battles were at a great pace. Sort of how I wish Total War was on pace and scale but without TW graphics.

This vid gives a glimpse of pace towards the end.

I admire their spirit.  Based on Doug's reviews, the SYW offering smacked of Napoleon 1813, which is to gaming what Gilliam's "Don Quixote" was, until recently, to movie making.

I wish them well.

Yeah and SYW was one man effort if I remember right.

Now it's more guys, including art, and new engine that can handle, quote:

The engine should support everything between 1600-1899, but the setting/theme of the first title will be revealed later
