    Wow. That save system sounds absurd! This sure will be interesting…

    I’d love to play the original! So far I’ve only played Civ 2 onwards.

    IMO Colonization’s gameplay is different enough to deserve being played separately. Though it does have some rather conspicuous omissions :/

    Kdrnic is also keen to play, though will only be able to at a weekend.

    I’m game, in the unlikely event that you don’t have enough people.

    (Provided people have forgiven me for October, that is.)

    I’m a bit late to the party but heck I love this game! There have been plenty of highlights so far but the most striking at first was the combat system: part chess, part RTS and part some other magical ingredient, it obviously allows some really deep strategy and I can’t wait for more.
    The art and music haven’t bothered me at all: I actually think both are very nice. On reflection I think both are reminiscent of Colonization; in particular the style of town UI will be familiar to anyone who has played that game, even down to the troop arrangement at the bottom.

    Overall I’m happily impressed (and slightly addicted). Great choice! 🙂

    Update: here are the sources; thanks kdrnic!

    Seems post-apocalyptic supertrain travel plays a lot on French minds. Also there was a large variation in opinion on the film so let’s see what we think of this game!

    Reminds me of the film, Snowpiercer, which kdrnic tells me is based on a separate story which also involves post-apocalyptic supertrain travel(!).

    We must play this probably terrigreat game!

    I’d vote for this! Looks very pretty, and it even had a website with some pretty sweet screenshots 😀

    I’d never heard of Descent until reading this. Apparently it’s a 360-degree, 3D, anti-gravity space shooter; what’s not to like?! It looks pretty great too!

    Apparently it also has multiplayer :U

    I’m definitely up for playing this 😀

    Wow, great progress, Pix, and a very fair review. From what I remember the highlights were mostly in the first episode, and the latter two were more gruelling. Still, I look forward to tackling them! I vaguely remember everything being on fire in Episode 3 like you said; I can’t wait 😀

    # Don’t give up!
    There are several very hard parts in this game, but there are also lots of delicious secret goodies! For example, check out this great big bonanza I found on one of the earlier levels 😀

    In later levels it’s quite common to find a pentagram (or several) behind a panel too. So when faced with an impossible horde of skeletons/witches/doctors/whatever and low on health, take a relaxing walk around parts of the level you’ve already conquered, and keep an eye on… your eye, for panels!

    Really glad to hear you’re enjoying it more, @pix! You’ve inspired me to work through the later episodes too. Also well done on your rapid progress – make sure to leave something for Halloween 😉
