I have been so INSANELY addicted to Sins of a Solar Empire lately I may not have time for this wonderful game. Just kidding, day one purchase. Even if I don't like it I will buy it just to support Stardock.
Here's the thing: Stardock is a small company. Elemental had a development budget of "only" $2.5 million. Therefore, they don't need to sell as many copies to break even and start making a profit. As such, they don't need the slick, big budget marketing campaigns that, say, a game like Civ 5 needs. They're able to depend more on word-of-mouth. Oh, and Stardock CEO and lead developer Brad Wardell said recently that they've sold enough pre-orders of Elemental to at least break even, so anything they sell after this is pure profit. Not too shabby for a company supposedly in need of a good PR consultant. ;)
Huzzah! It's almost launch day for this promising game. What's not to like about a 21st Century Master of Magic?
Ive got this pre ordered hope it lives up to the hype..Im hearing positve an negative reviews on it..Havent played mom in such a long time..Its the only game that sounds similar to it...Heres to playing this on the 24th..
