The Mims Beginning is a game I've been closely following for a long while. Despite my aversion to most strategy games, something about the world of Mims captured my attention and maintained interest through regular updates. The Mims is an exciting combination of an art style reminiscent of Dr Seuss and quirky game mechanics, like an odor system that determines the type of enemies you must fend off.
Developer Squatting Penguin have recently released a gameplay video containing developer commentary, describing design choices and mechanics of the game. Be warned, even though the narration is understandable it does require some concentration.
