Gloria Victis

Have any of you guys seen trailers/ gameplay from Gloria Victis?
Website: [ http://gloriavictisgame.com ]
Trailer: [ https://youtu.be/H-dGAUK_W9A ]
- Sounds/ Shaders are kinda clunky in the trailer, but then again, it's still in alpha.
Pre-Alpha Footage: [ https://youtu.be/hICRzBgx6SI ]

I stumbled across this a few days ago and thought it might be worth sharing.
It has a really interesting combat system, with no player targeting and no crazy specials. They even are planning on implementing things such as feints and parries. It would be nice if they had some magic element, even if just a light mage system, but understand why they chose to stick to the realistic aspect of it.
The game not only seems to have a sound combat system, GV seems to have a strategy element, with the realistic combat making flanking/maneuvering a more important aspect than before.
They will have PvP territories and sieges of towns/cities/castles/capitols.
The armor will vary from light to heavy, affecting how much stamina movements cost/ how maneuverable you would be in battle. 
All this coupled with the fact you can build your own keeps/ defenses/siege equipment makes this sound very promising. Especially keep building.
The game looks awesome and is a definite purchase for me as of now.

Almost forgot: they also are including backers in the dev process. Backers get to vote on new features/etc. An element I believe they are planning on continuing for updates/etc.

i tried it for the crafting sandbox aspect but only played one time.  its still pretty alpha-ey and clunky yet.  not bad though.
