I don't know if many of you have seen this or not but it is basically a free and open source remake of the original Age of Empires, except with modern HD graphics and very big largely detailed maps. I have already had a chance to play it while it was early in development and it was already really stable and fun then, but the game is now nearing completion and I have once again picked it up for another play through.



I definitely recommend you guys head over to their site and try it out, they did an absolutely brilliant fucking job with it.

I think it was Leonardo da Vinci who once said something along the lines of "If you build the robots, they will make games." or something to that effect.

The Game is stable, but slow and little difficult. I can't win with bot with cheats ... :P

But a Game is nice.

If you can spare a dolar - sponsor it

And also sponsor Enigma-dev ;)

Really, I didn't know either.

Good coders don't seem so good at marketing.
And guess what?
That's the one thing you need for a successful crowdfunding.

Pity.
