Sweet mother of mercy. It's like indie game devs are monitoring my dreams and creating stuff just for me. Kenshi is the latest and it looks like it will be awesome.
A work-in-progress version of the game will be sold in Oct for $10, which includes free updates "forever".
It kind of reminds me of Mount and Blade, but with samurai and no horses. There is also base building. I'm setting aside my $10 now.
