If you can't make fun of something, it's probably not worth taking seriously.

You have to love the smell of science in the morning. It smells of learning.... or perhaps a gas leak.

Inquisitors are the only aspect of the Imperium which is of interest to me, so this does look intriguing.  As always though, I'd need a new computer to be able to run it.

I'll probably pick it up later this week and give it a try.

I saw TotalBiscuit's "WTF is..." of it, and he complained that the combat aspect was kind of a waste, since it seems to have been designed with tablets in mind. However, if the story (which is basically the titular Eisenhorn novel, from what I gather) and presentation of the non-battlefield side of the Imperium is strong enough, it might have become a decent game since his look at it.

One day I hope to see a well-fleshed out 40k RPG that takes you into the hearts of Hive Cities and Administratum Palaces and the likes, with Bioware-esque production values or something.

As a tablet to PC port, many of the reviews are not good as such. Still, while combat doesn't seem all that interesting people do seem to be having fun with it. I may wait a little to see if there are any updates or a better sale price.
