This is actually like year-old news, but folks missed it, apparently.

I had actually been waiting for more backstory on AI War ever since the announcement of EOTM. Until 20 minutes ago, that was  :-\

Aww. I was hoping it was just in indefinite cold storage for resurrection at a later date  :(

Perhaps after the new 4X game comes out you could think about EotM?  A 'strategic' Oregon Trail type of game?

Nope, I don't see this one ever coming back, sorry.  Our ideas for it didn't work out, and we'd have to do all-new art and so forth for it, too.

I still wonder what happened. Initially I thought that there may be something contractual here so you can't tell, but now a year later I'm leaning towards the idea that it's too embarrassing to tell the details  :)

Not embarassing per se, but in general we made a lot of mistakes with the project (a good chunk of them mine) and it's not something we find very pleasant to think or talk about :)

And normally we're pretty open about talking about that sort of thing, but when outside parties are also involved we try to avoid doing so.
