Yes, it's always possible to play old savegames in any new version.
Have ideas or bug reports for one of our games?  Mantis for Suggestions and Bug Reports. Thanks for helping to make our games better!

Keep in mind though, things may be a bit weird, especially if new stuff starts getting seeded in.

For instance, what could of been a balanced situation in the old version may be near unwinnable now. This is an unfortunate side affect of balance shifts.
