The reality of it is they did not finish it, not really ven polished for release. Had a update/beta build they had almost complete enough for beta test/internal testing and released that week or two later after launch, then just disappeared and its now abandon ware essentially. Its based of one the most critically acclaimed Board/miniature Aviation games ever and was widely looked forward to by a lot of people that play it or similar like the Wings of Glory games .
76mm I agree, for what ever reason, it seems the better the game is in its physical form, they rarely seem to do well digitally. In this case it was just outright abandoned and they knew they would long before they released it, as did, I suspect others. The teams leadership I will not name here , just not worth the potential trouble it may cause me on Matrix (Whom I have the utmost respect for usually, just not in this case, any way the Teams leaders really have yet to surface and I hope that if nothing else their careers are ruined, Did my part and will continue to make sure people are aware of the scum bags . This was supposed to be a straight digital port over, and should have been relatively easy thing to do, when compared to other games that start from ground up.
No updates or anything ever, just a beta client release and then they Houdinied and flat vanished. Leaving those that paid the 30-40$ for it with basically a final Alpha state pos that really is not even close to enjoyable if you are able to get it stable and play through the various bugs it has.
I understand wanting to recoup some loss by the publisher, but to do it on the backs of already ripped of customers is pathetic way to "run a railroad" , if I may say so, and I do . Go after them and get it back, not the people that made, and continue to make you what you are today. Whether intentional or not, the point is its a insult to the dimmest of us intelligence that they even considered making a BOXED UPGRADE for the garbage in the first place, much less let it make the final cut and hope some one might purchase it.
Pure greed , or pure stupidity , maybe both.
