Am I the only one here who sorta wants a awesomely themed, fun to play and slick city management game?
Logic gates? Giant automated contraptions? Custom buildings (custom in function, not looks)? Varying complexity levels?
All of this sounds incredibly hard to make into a actual game.
It seems likely that trying for this sorta thing will only end in tears as their basics are left lacking (or even worse forced to interact with this layer of complexity) and all this extra shit ends up as gimmicky garbage.
I mean, I am sure the Gaslamp guys know their limits, and are going to avoid all this shit and are going to make a awesome game, but the rest
of you guys seem to be working yourself up into a frenzy over stuff that has no way in hell of happening. Stop looking at pie in the sky gimmicky bullshit feature creep that you made up in your heads and start looking at the cool game they are actually offering. At this rate you guys are going to be very upset when this game comes out, even if it turns out totally awesome.
My expectations are currently set at The Settlers: Clockwork town. Which sounds really damn awesome and actually possible.
