pew ..... as someone who was on board with PA since the kickstarter, i have very mixed feelings here.
The engine and general look of things was ok for what it was used for.Gameplay was ok too. A bit simple, if not taking multiple planets into account. With multiple planets, not really my type of gameplay.
So many bad decisions let a community die out over what is basically a technical perfectly fine game. Then there is no real balancing taking place. The meta is super simple and greets with 'boring' in many places.
I briefly watched the trailer and with the info of the usage of community money to get it going: This is not getting me hyped.
The idea to combine these 2 gfenres could be pretty cool. Maybe finally, the eco players get a meta where they can exist.
Personally, I gonna keep my money, high expectations and I will wait for something to test.
