I don't know if I'd call the Advance Wars games "accessable" after the first handful of missions. AW kind of kicks your ass around a bit.

Looks kinda cool, I liked Advance Wars so I'll keep an eye on this.

The gameplay will suffer without having a grid.  An essential part of any turn-based strategy game is being able to quickly see how far you, and the enemy, can move.  Taking away that precision of unit placement and there is a real danger of it becoming a mess of fiddly blobs of units. 
 
I'll take a fresh look at it when it comes out, as I love TBS games, but so far this looks nothing special.  Certainly nothing to appeal to a huge Advance Wars fan like myself.  For one thing, the story and the characters will need to be better than generic skeleton dudes floating around.  Presentation will be everything.

Definitely on my watch list. Always happy to see small developers games get publishers. Congrats.

Microsoft is also publishing Orcs Must Die. That will also come out for the PC. It seems Microsoft is happy publishing game  with 360/PC releases.
