Now that this is on sale for $10, I'm considering buying it and Piercing Fortress Europa. Just checking in as to the future of these titles before I pull the trigger.

EDIT: Rasputitsa: Excellent work, by the way, with your feedback on this and the other game. Kudos for keeping interest up.

Cheers,
CB


Thanks for the kind comments, I can't comment on the future of the games, although hoping that CotD v3.06 will appear.

However, even in the current versions, both CotD and PFE are worth considering, as they are both very distinctive games, with a spice of realistic uncertainty in the game system.

CotD is not perfect in that the manual is out of date and there are still some problems which have not been resolved, but the game is still playable and there are workarounds and house rules which can increase the challenge against the AI.

PFE is a newer game, with a more up-to-date manual, also has some issues, which can be off-set with house rules and careful play.

Both games are improved immensely by using the CHEMKID map and counter mods, which although only providing eyecandy, do add to the immersion and 'feel' of the games.

The games are deceptively simple to play, but have potential for great depth and the deeper you go, the deeper the reward.

Thanks for the feedback, Rasputitsa. I will think about this for a while before buying, since this sale goes until January 12 and I'm plenty busy with other games. I see you have Chemkid's great work on file somewhere. I may ask you for that at some point if that's cool. I don't know what happened to him, but he did some great work on a lot of games.

Cheers,
CB

CHEMKID left the forum and closed the links, which is a great shame as it is very good quality work. I have the files which I use in my game and can send a 'OneDrive' link to an email address.

Meanwhile we wait to see if CotD v3.06 will appear.

Even if the full v3.06 update is not available, is it possible to issue the fixes achieved so far, so that we can at least have some of the expected improvements.

Well, it was active for a while, but now gone quite again and the v3.06 update has not appeared, but we can hope.
