Smells like team spirit.

Prodigy Tactics is now available, DRM-free on GOG.com with a 10% launch discount until November 15, 6PM UTC.
Two teams locked in a deadly turn-based battle: while one is positioning itself to attack, the other is setting up its defensive strategy. Use your heroes' unique abilities smartly to pull of powerful synergies, channel Harmony or Dissonance to change the tide, and exit the arena as the victor.

The multiplayer part of the game will be added in the upcoming days.

Note: This game is currently in development. See the FAQ to learn more about games in development, and check out the forums to find more information and to stay in touch with the community.

Watch the trailer.

Like you and others...I am definitely interested, so just wishlisting it, and will keep on eye on where it's going, and how it's shaping up

tinyE: I just noticed there is a WikiPage for the term 'Child Prodigy". XD

Jesus, no wonder no one takes that fucking site seriously.
OK, maybe I'm being slow tonight, but care to elaborate what the problem with that wiki article is?

immi101: the 90s are calling - they want their GIF files back ...
do you really need to blow up the store page by 8MB for that ?
They should add some animated stars, smileys and dancing babies to their store pages. Guaranteed boost to all sales!

'Child Prodigy' is grammatically incorrect. They have an entire page about a redundancy.

NOW, if English is not your first language I don't expect you to know this, so I'm not slamming anyone who wasn't born into English for missing this. It's just always been a pet peeve of mine because it's a term I hear more often then not from people who are trying to sound smart. Always some asshole in the room trying to impress people with is verbal skills, doesn't realize he/she is actually butchering the language. Kathy Lee Gifford uses this term a lot, case closed. :P When the game showed up I did a Google on it, expecting something about it's misuse I could put in here as kind of a goof, but instead I actually found a page describing it, as if it was a real thing. :P

Hm, so the problem is not so much the content of the article, but rather the term "child prodigy"? I don't know, apparently the term prodigy can have several meanings, so saying "child prodigy" is more specific, even if it may seem redundant.

- Hey, dude! Let’s make a video game!
- Cool! Anything specific?
- Yeah! I’m thinking about this great animation of heroes doing jazzy stuff.
- Animation? Shouldn’t we first talk about…
- No, no, no, no! Don’t stop me! I’m in a creative trance! Think about it! A man with a sword jumping three times higher than he is tall!
- And that’s it?
- Three times higher! Don’t you understand? Or a girl with purple skin conjuring a transparent bubble.
- Transparent bubble? What should that be for?!
- Doesn’t matter. Think about all this fancy light effects we can implement! Or a woman who levitates in embryonic position and shoots a lighting up in to the sky!
- Lightning usually comes DOWN from the sky.
- Yes, exactly! That’s the twist man! That would be a great spiritual experience for every gamer around the world!
- Will there be some animals there?
- Sure! I’m thinking about wolf-like creature that hops around like a stoned rabbit!
- That’s cool bro! Let’s make this game!

And the problem is...? This is a digital tactical boardgame, they all work the same. If you want to know how the little horse-shaped ones move, well, this is a digital boardgame so they aren't telling.

I get the gist of your annoyance, but... does it really apply here? Nowhere in the newspost or the store page it is written "child prodigy". The game is called "Prodigy Tactics", dumb as it may sound. (Although in the publisher's site it is called just "Prodigy")

Now, if you were annoyed at the stupid trailer I'd absolutely agree with you.

I'm just making fun how little the trailer shows, no problem to be reported ;)

If you look at the kickstarter campaign, the real origin story is much more bizarre than a fascination with jumping dudes and purple fetuses.

The original version is an online board game with nfc minis. There are known, nearly insurmountable obstacles to new mini war games: minis are expensive in terms of time and money, a bunch of local people should buy into it, they have to be at the same place at the same time, they have to put on pants, etc. Their solution was this weird hybrid: a player is supposed to put the nfc mat in from of the monitor and place their 1-12 (preassembled, prepainted) figures on it, while the opponent's setup will be represented by 3d models on the screen. (Which means that, instead of a dynamic battlefield, the end result is two teams staring at each other across the 4th wall and smouldering with generic rage). Then they realize, heywaitaminute, we already have to create digital assets and digital action resolution and the online component, why not make a videogame? And that's Prodigy Tactics.

Yeah, sure, I've made some research about it and probably buy the game when it's released. The point is, however, the trailer is downright terrible, and if I saw the trailer only I would think it's an aRPG. Sure, judging the game by the trailer only is silly but making a trailer that doesn't show anything meaningful about the game is even more silly :)
I love tactical turn based stuff, but this looks to be very multi plaer focused, so not really for me even once it's finished.
