    this pretty much closes the case about the quality of the product:
    "Uses Denuvo. Proof on the store page."

    Such discount on release week is something normal. If you haven't pirated every single game you played you would have know this.

    "happened before" and "accepted behaviour" doesn't mean "normal".

    Yes, of course, if it was dynamic I would have nothing against it. But picking it for stats just feels lame. What I have seen it's just a pop-up question - You want to change to Greek? YES/NO.

    I don't recall a game that didn't have a 10-15% launch discount. Every marketing agency we talked to recommended it, so that's pretty normal. Upping it to 17% is clever as it stands out more and only costs you 2% extra.

    You click on each 'card' and get the details:

    Basically, you get different variations of militaristic, expansionist, scientific, industrial, merchant, etc civilizations. You pick the one that suits your current goals the most, looking mainly at the stats/units/other bonuses.

    I'm guessing the original idea was to take an early culture like the Akkadians and then pick one of the 'next age' cultures in that region, all the way to modern Iran, for example (which you still can do), but then decided to let the players pick whatever they want.

    I tried it out but refunded it after an hour. Nothing major against what little I saw of the game other than that the writing was poor and that the map panning was EXTREMELY slow even when increased in the options. But it just seemed a little dull overall, will check on it again in a year.

    The narrator reminded me of CIV 6, the right word is not coming to me right now but its a little snarky and too self aware. I wish the opening cinematic and monologue was on youtube, it's very bad in a way that I fear is reflective of the overall game. It talks about how the universe is just a buncha space junk, but some space junk on Earth became a little bit more interesting, and maybe there's a story to tell here but this cinematic is not going to do anything to set that up - and wow here you are.

    I see they yet again failed to implement the option to speed up strategic movement. Worth rating :retarded: for that alone.

    It doesn't. Denuvo was removed from the game way before release.

    Factorio, but that's a whole other pricing strategy.

    I think the real reason is because it looked like much more. 59,99$ -15% would be 50,99$. Upping it to 17% got them under the 50$ mark (but maybe you meant that with stands out more)

    Oh god, the unit movement speed is so slooow, and the edge panning as well, even when set to max speed. By the time your reach late game, your sanity will slowly disappear.
    :negative:


    And there is something about the design of this game's UI and graphics, it's almost like they were designed by web designers, not gamers. Everything looks clean and presentable, but not in a way you'd want to see in a video game. Same with their previous games, and I noticed that in Solasta, as well. I hope it's doesn't catch on.

    Don't worry, I'm sure one of the inevitable 30 expansion packs will include more ages, more races and more superweapons.

    Bored with your Egyptian/Japanese/Dutch/Zulu/American playthrough? Fear not because in the new exciting Vaulters DLC you can become Vaulters and take to the stars in a whole new atomic age (for 20 turns) . Or if that's to boring, switch to the Riftborn in the space age for the next 30 turns. Because why the hell not?

    Exactly my thoughts on the UI. It looks too modern and sterile, just like a german bank website.

    And that's a shame because the artworks and illustrations are really cool.

    "pick your avatar". mostly females, the only almost normal average white male looks actually rather mongoloid, both figuratively and literally. but hey, he's blond! a step ahead from battletech.
    but wait, it can be edited! not a single normal haircut.
    so i've been pretty much forced to impersonate an italian short bald man in a military suit.
