I have been looking after this game for a long time. Finally its out it seems. Still there are couple
questions...

1: When digital version of this game will be available for download/purchase? A Physical copy price is way too high. These days, you can buy a game with 0.99-4.99e at iOS store. 70e+ for a game is way too much. I know this is a niche game and all... I have heard all explanations about overpriced titles for years. What I fear, is that this overpricing really makes this a small niche product, that just few plays. Instead of a game that millions would play. A good example of such game is Dominions 3. It was a niche game that rarely anyone ever heard. Right after it came to Steam and with a fair price. A lot of people know and play it.

2: Any idea when AI will be coming, if ever?

There has been talk of an announcement on this for a while but no idea what will be announced or when.

Re the AI. Yes, we've been told its coming but no guarantees as to any date.

Warspite, just to make sure, you mean an announcement of a digital-only version?

An announcement concerning that subject - not necessarily with that as the result. We need to wait for the announcement.

Have to say I will be annoyed if Matrix wait until after xmas holidays are over and then say we can purchase the game without the $50 freight charge.
I mean why wait until we are all back at work and don't have time to play the game. Lets just find new ways to annoy the customers guys.

Cheers

And you'll be upset if they don't make such a announcement. Such is life.

Erik had a family crisis.

I have faith sometime soon after the New Year holiday he will make the announcement.

Good or bad I can wait with no trouble or concern.

Thanks for your words of wisdom . The next time I need advise on Zen or the meaning of life I will be sure to consult you. It's obviously much easier for those of us who don't have any demands on there free time like say a job.

Thanks for the laugh. Since I'm only working 56 hours this week
It is nice to get some humor.

Here's some more wisdom. The answer you seek will be made when it's made. The people who work for this company are either on vacation, or have personal matters to deal with, or a cornucopia of other matters that are really nobody's business.

You'll just have to embrace the suck like the rest of us.

Hi everyone,

Apologies again for the delay on this. Per an internal discussion today, I expect we will have an announcement this week.

+1 to that, I do not want to pay for the physical goodies, download only version is fine for me and my friends with PDFs in electronic version only.

Merci, Michel.

Wondering if there could be a cheaper delivery option even if it is slower?

My understanding is that the size and weight, and chance of damage, limit the delivery options.

Cheers

Once our European warehouse opens, we'll have some more options for outside the US, but right now what we have is the best we could offer given the factors Pip mentioned.

That's what I am waiting on....an AI. I understand its going to cost to get the AI...like DLC or an expansion. If so,...it better be one very good AI.

You want the AI so you can complain about that? I don't think that anyone forced you to buy this game!!!

If they charge extra for an AI on top of charging $100 for the base game, then it better be worth it. If you cant understand that then you are too stupid to even bother trying to explaining it to you.
