    The official profit figures can be just for tax optimization purposes. Pretty common for potato companies to claim next to nothing in profits knowing the tax authority lacks capacity to properly investigate.

    That's true, but they are publicly listed and there was a noticeable drop between 2017-18.

    Looks like a bunch of Gary Grigby's stuff got added, which anyone who's interested in already owns on steam or got from matrix/slitherine

    GOG is a game publisher now ?
    Fantasy General 2, in production by ownedbygravitygames :

    https://www.facebook.com/ownedbygravitygames

    https://www.gog.com/forum/general/g...4?pp=cb4e5208b4cd87268b208e49452ed6e89a68e0b8

    Fantasy General is owned by GOG. It might even be the real cause behind the loss last year.

    Not getting my hopes up though : most of the people behind this Fantasy General 2 seems linked with Cliffhanger Productions according to linked in :

    https://www.linkedin.com/in/marko-jelen-668b6a49
    https://fr.linkedin.com/in/kristian-farkas-74879846
    https://www.firmenabc.at/owned-by-gravity-gmbh_OYRW

    Interesting to note that GOG also own the licence to the gold box games (would still need Hasbro though for any sequel).

    At least it's a honest and fitting name choice for once.

    The hell? I loved Fantasy General, that will be the first time the industry necrophilia genuinely hurts since Fallout 3.

    After playing Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon I have little faith in this.

    This doesn't look anything like the original Fantasy General

    If Hasbro had no issue with Beamdog doing all their "enhancements" and also Dragonspear, then I doubt they would care if GOG did the same.

    I know they're not technically goldbox, but what about the Dark Sun games?

    The only General game I didnt finish is Star General, which I only played the demo when the game was released.

    If it gets GoG release it will be day 1 buy.
