The game is older then your information. It's been out over a year now, but mainly due to marketing issues, it's been bounced between so many different publishers it's pathetic.
I own it, it's quite interesting. It offers a solid choice of things to play, given templates. Or if you and the GM is in an experimenting mood, you can make your own.
The dice system is relatively easy to learn and the way you choose successes is rather unique, in short, it's like playing a poker hand. Nothing I really dislike about the game, the only true weakness it has is how hard it's to get a copy, hopefully that will be rectified in the future.
