I think he meant "Unique from each other".

When you say "multiplayer", will it be on one computer like TRPG2 Duel or will it be at two different locations like XBOX LIVE?

Right now, it only supports hotseat play a la TRPG2 Duel Mode. The goal, however, is for it to support legit multiplayer as well.

Will it have a story and a campaign like Age of Empires, Empire Earth, and Halo Wars?

No. However, I'm coding the engine so that it can easily be reused for future, single player efforts that will be story-based.

What are some of the "24 unique unit classes"?

Swordsmen
Spearmen
Bowmen
Crossbowmen
Assassins
Cavalry (scorpion riders)
Lizardmen
Engineers
Stone Golems
Bronze Golems
Energy Golems
Spirits
Mentalists
Pyrokineticists
Cryokineticists
Photokineticists
Skiakineticists
Psy Healers
Red Spriggats
Frost Spriggats
Black Spriggats
Golden Spriggats
Shadowlings
Phantom Armor

Would "Golden Spriggat" be along the same lines as "Light Spriggat"?

Mentalists
Skiakineticists
Golden Spriggats

These would be the ones I haven't seen before. I'm mostly curious about the Skiakineticists as I can figure out what the other classes are.
Currently tied with Zack for the title of Master of Light!

The video he posted explains Menalists and Engineers. I don't know what the Skiakineticsts are.

Thought so. Now I'm really anxious for Craig to release it.

Could Buh'Baque be a playable character Easter egg, maybe after being unlocked by beating the game (If there is single-player) on the hardest difficulty, or by fighting and winning a certain number of battles? ;D

That would be epic... Haha! Maybe it should be changed from "-opinions" to "-discussions".

Pyrokineticist=Heat Psy
Cryokineticist=Cold Psy
Photokineticist=Light Psy
Skiakineticists=Shadow Psy

Phantom Armor - the hardiest of the flying units, with powerful slashing attacks but low movement speed. Phantom armor can regenerate itself when damaged.
Will the Phantom Armor of Telepath Tactics (TT) be the Phantom Armor of TRPG2 or the Ghost Knights of TSoG?

When you say "multiplayer", will it be on one computer like TRPG2 Duel or will it be at two different locations like XBOX LIVE?
Right now, it only supports hotseat play a la TRPG2 Duel Mode. The goal, however, is for it to support legit multiplayer as well.
It would almost require some type of internet connection between players, because it is difficult to organize people to play (much like it is difficult to get people to play even the most fun board games).

Will it have a story and a campaign like Age of Empires, Empire Earth, and Halo Wars?
No. However, I'm coding the engine so that it can easily be reused for future, single player efforts that will be story-based.
So Telepath Tactics will have little to no story like TPA2, while an improved sequal will be story filled like TSoG?  I think the Telepath world has a very good mythos, so it would be a waste to not expand it.

The former. However, in order to make them interesting and useful as unique units, I've altered their characteristics.

How so? Appearance, or capabilities?

Capabilities, since they can now fly.
