Re: My Review of Stars in Shadow

Gladius looks promising (love 40 strategy), thanks for the tip ;) One more thing: there is the area of planetary invasion which is the black sheep of 4X game mechanics. I always find find it interesting to compare this functionality between the various titles, as due to the involved difficulties an...

Re: My Review of Stars in Shadow

Definitely plan to lay out my thoughts on all of those and for sure, I agree with you on both accounts for ES2 and Stellaris.

I’m going to be writing about At the Gates, Interstelar Space Genesis, Warhammer Gladius and a few others! Lots to keep me busy ;)

Re: My Review of Stars in Shadow

Yeah, those are good points regarding influence, I forgot about them and I’ll edit my thoughts to reflect that. The general point still stands, though.

I appreciate you taking the time to read it, though. I’ll keep updating the site as SiS and other games evolve.

Thanks again!

Diplomacy Woes. Again.

I just uploaded a game that I was messing around with to remember points for a review I'm writing. In it, I've literally JUST sued for peace with the Phidi and used 100 influence to do so, only for them to declare war on me the VERY NEXT TURN. There needs to be a cooldown, or something like that, wi...

Re: Can We Talk About Diplomacy?

Those ideas sound very good. Each of them! I’m curious, however, about timelines for that. I think diplomacy is the only thing keeping this game from being an easy game to universally recommend. I thought I would need to suggest ideas, but it’s clear you guys have a pretty good vision for what it ne...

Can We Talk About Diplomacy?

I’m eager to discuss it and offer suggestions on how to improve it, but before I do, I’d be very interested in knowing what the plans are to improve it.

Could you share?

Wow that’s great to hear! What a gem this turned in to.

Any plans for you to provide a couple different backgrounds for the strategic map? Something less...blue?

So What’s Next?

Updates are coming at a pretty fast pace. Are there plans for something new soon?

Re: Next DLC

Yes! This all sounds great, Jim! SiS is such a great game and I keep coming back to it after Endless Space 2, Stellaris and Civ 6 piss me off. Some of your design decisions are sublime and make for a much better game in some respects than these others. I just wish more people bought it. You deserve ...
