Just bought this game yesterday, and so far I'm loving it. The potential in this game is huge along with the potential future features that it may contain. I already consider this far superior to my other favorite, GalCiv...
If there is one thing that's been bugging me since I bought this game, its the lack of advertisement.
I found out about this game by pure chance alone, after doing a quick search in google for 'Top Games of 2010', and if it wasn't for my rather uncanny patience by scrolling down the list of hundreds of games, I probably would never had made a purchase...
Which suggests to me that lack of advertisement will have a negative effect on sales, and a negative effect on sales may damage the game in the long run, something I don't want to see, considering how much I've fallen in love now with this very game ...
So, after doing a quick check on the forums to see if a similar thread exists, I would like to do a poll of sorts on how you became aware of this game, heck... It may even help the Devs understand how their game is being discovered.
