It's not like SMAC again, it's a new .. um ... creative idea. Next: Sim Golf II, Sid Meier's Vicksburg

Hmmmmm, now Vicksburg or, better still, The Pennisular Champaign, would be interesting, IMHO.

It looks a bit too much like a mod for Civ 5...

I mean, it doesn't look futuristic enough so far.

I will probably give it a whirl. I have gone back to SMAC in the last few months and stopped playing Civ5.

Civ3, Civ4 and Civ5 were, play it safe, keep it linear, dumb it down, keep the franchise going, sort of fun games. But Civ5 was less boring than the previous two versions, so who knows? maybe they will do a better job. "Non-linear" and "Asymmetric" always sounds good, but both make balanced gameplay difficult. Hopefully the programming will be a lot bolder than the recent entries in the franchise.
