True, the game costs more than commercial games found in every shop, every supermarket.
Matrixgames is a small company that offers niche games.
Today's players, especially the youth, is not interested in work. There should be just a quick success.
The young players of today want fun and party. But no work - certainly not with the brain.
For matrix games, this means that the sales figures are much smaller than that of larger companys their customer are mainly the brain-less players. It´s exclusive stuff vs. mass stuff.
Somewhere must be the sale also expected. Also, the game designers, producers and so on need to feed their families.
Special people have special claims and are (people and claims) not found on the mass market.
Right, so you can buy a game for the Xbox or the PS 3 for less money.
What you get then? - Serial moving images.
As an example the Strategy hammer "of the year" a magazin called it so (I do not know the year and the magazin anymore), Command & Conquer.
What you get for your money? A good graphics, enhanced sound and intellectuals challenging task to develop your strategy in the sense of: collect everything as quickly as possible, build as much as you can as quickly as possible and then assault the enemy with everything you collected.
This is all very colorful, loud and fast. And right, it´s also a strategy.
Your back and your butt hurts from sitting, your fingers, wrist and your arm hurts by fast mouse movement, your eyes hurt from staring at the flimming screen - but your brain is wonderfully relaxed - was not even claimed.
In addition, the companies that serve the mass market don´t reach by far the depth, detail (only in graphic gems - that´s their trump they think and thats usually their less recruitment) and love the charm impart.
Also the customer service from these companies is mostly bad.
The customer service here at Matrix Games is incredible. The proximity to customers may be responsible unrivaled.
In the forum you will find mostly adults, I won´t call them players or gamer, maybe I call them serious brain strategists and (brain) users.
Also in the forum there is a friendly and mature art to discuss.
Also Matrixgames games on the market for years are still reliably maintained.
What you get with i. e. With:PA:
-receives an intelligent and challenging game, no wrong - simulation software.
-Customer of its equal.
-A special and exclusive world. Matrixgames customers are something special. None everyday people.
-A challenging hobby, not a cheap pastime.
A warning, however: most of matrixgames games are not for everyone! Who is not willing to invest worktime and to sacrifice for those the purchase is a lost.
There are people who spend their hole free time to passive watch television commercial broadcast spots.
There are also people whom it´s important to be ambitious in their spare time to spend - they walk, perhaps to the opera, theaters, cinemas in a challenging movie. They do something active.
How valuable is your free time for you, your life time and the time you are away from really important (your family?)?
Your life is to short to trow it away. You like gaming, great it´s a importent part of life - it can be important for your mental health.
Fliping a coin, play with your children, make nonsen with your friends or your wife or playing computer games. what ever your prefere and satisfied you.
Brainless Zombie or active Homo Sapiens?
WitP: AE on the first look is more expensive than most other games - on the bottom line is still far too cheap.
