I received this email some time ago:
I’m writing a TBS similar to Reiner Knizia’s Samurai too but based in a comical fantasy world rather than Japanese. Its my first project so is taking a fair bit of time and I’m doing all the programming and graphics myself. If you fancy taking a look, you can find my blog at: www.whitespace.net.nz
Take a look at the site, his version of the Samurai game looked very good to me.
I must point out, that the ‘secret game project’ is NOT based on Knizia’s Samurai.
P.S. My lips are sealed for further guesses…
