I noticed in some comments one of the "programmers" said he knows Banished used the Unity engine. Hmmm, we know that's not true so whatever these guys are doing, they are not accurate on their info. I'd like to see more blog posting from all those working on this and their history and some code examples to prove their history. I'd also like to see some videos of them discussing this game and some interviews with known game bloggers or magazines.
I won't be spending any money until I know more about them.
