Old World from Soren Johnson
« on: April 14, 2020, 12:54:43 PM »
Looks like a new 4x/resource management/rpgish game set in ancient times from Civ4 and Offworld Trading Company designer Soren Johnson.

Early access on Epic before the summer.  Not sure if that means only Epic though.

The trailer looks excellent..........

Cross between Civ and Crusader Kings maybe...

Epic exclusive I believe.

This sounds like an interesting game.  I was a big fan of Civilization IV and still play it sometimes.  I would prefer it was on Steam since I have no experience buying games through Epic.  I'll keep an eye on this one.

Looks promising.  Someone wake me next year when it's out of early access, and available on Steam.

Did I miss something ? Aside from the hassle of having a different storefront for my games, what is the specific beef with Epic ?

I am very tempted by Old World.

Questionable business practices and poor user security, for two beefy reasons.

So far glowing reviews from long time Civ players like Quill18 and the Explorminate  website which specializes in 4X gaming.

It seems they may have nailed it.

Some pretty new mechanics and of course this is only the first day of Early Access. There are already 1000 unique events in the game that the player can be confronted with and the aim is for 3000 before full release.
