Having backed it since Kickstarter, I can say that its easy to learn (certainly easier than others) and has a large (huge) amount of free and inexpensive art packages. Even the most costly add-ons (and you don't need them!) are no more than market value.

The updating and use of add-ons are a snap. They have managed to do it in as little as two steps once you've registered the main program. You enter your email and then you press the "download from server" button... thats it! Ease of use for anyone.

Makes great looking maps and layouts for both GM's and players ! Goes from D&D to Sci-fi (and both in some cases) in the click of a few mouse buttons.

I felt there was a need for a tool like this, a need that wasn't being met. So I made it myself.
