From opening Post; "We look forward to continuing this saga someday in the future!"
From Reply #2: "We still love this game and as you can see it still brings new customers. We deserve a 2.05 at least "
From Reply #5: "Looking forward to hear how GalCiv III will benefit from such competition "
From Reply #6: "Here's the problem - now that they're all buddy-buddy with Valve, they've infected each other. Steam now wants to market productivity software in addition to games, and Brad will not be able to release a 3rd game in a series."
How dissapointing... Especially since the odds are that I shall probably remain an end user (and not part of a development team); forcing me to wait for what seems to be an eternity (not to mention an inprobability; but mentioning it anyway)... All in hopes that the features that deserve more attention and development will potentially be incorporated...
But Windows 2013 will probably arrive first and send GalCiv I & II to bit heaven (just like Outpost 1.5 and SpaceBucks). Perhaps I should start playing the lottery: with any luck I'll win the funds necessary to... Unfortunately, that's a dream as far fetched as my hoping for a Gal Civ III with true inter-planetary and inter-galactic trade: where resources and supply lines shape one's strategies; where ships don't exist before the technology to create them does; where research on more than one thing at a time can be conducted; as well as co-operative and competetive multi-player capabilities.
