Well planets are terrain and it affects how useful they might be. Earthlike planets are more useful for farming than dustbowls.

This is a project we've always dreamt about doing, something all of PI have been involved in, not just the PDS developers.

This hint is probably the first one that really makes me think it might be a space game.

What might be cool is some kind of radical new era sci-fi set on Earth a century into the future, where the age of geopolitical stability has gone away due to technological advancement. It could be all about the struggle of the stagnant nation-states against new mass society concepts.

I think the smart money is on a space game now. They're even in the process of getting a trademark for two things, one called "Stellaris" and another called something like "Coriolis" - https://oami.europa.eu/eSearch/#details/owners/332862 (pages 2 and 3)

I've been waiting for a great 4X forever so if it is a space game, I'll go mail my boxers to Johan with a love note.

Papacy: the game

Combine the two and make a game about the Cadaver Synod.

It's gonna be some alternative future where the Romans are still in power and now expanding their empire beyond Terra.

Today's hint is "Elections and Technological Development are important parts of the game."

Sounds like something more modern, though it could still be Roman. I hope it is a more ahistorical grand strategy game this time around. Fantasy would be my favourite option, but elections don't sound very fantastical. Space could be fun too but the "terrain is important" hint doesn't really mesh so well with space.

EDIT: I totally missed that the hint was already posted above me. Need moar coffee.


I'll be very amused if it turns out to be Ancient Athens: The Game.

Fix'd.

Anyway, a sci-fi grand strategy game would be fantastic. However, going from historical to fictional brings a great challenge: coming up with excellent lore.

Another possibility is a modern, post-Cold War HoI-like game. Sort of like Supreme Ruler 2020 and SuperPower.
