There are degrees of fun, yeah. In this instance my definition of "having fun" is "having really top level fun that would lead to extended play if this were not my game." That's not always a distinction that is easy to make with one's own game, because the tendency is to listen to your bias instead. With AI War, Bionic, and now this one I've paid very keen attention to my own enjoyment, though, and I think that shows.

Can't wait to see it. No lie, the solar map thing you have going is one of the most innovative, awesome things you(collectively) have done since AI war. It was really only the combat that was missing out. Having multi-faction wars breaking out where you get to play a part, that's very intriguing. Keep at it so we can test it on Monday or Tuesday.

Will do!  This weekend was my wife's birthday, so I wasn't able to work over the weekend, but I'm back at it now. :)

Wife is more important that work!  Good for you, man.

Waiting patiently, just discovered Aurora.
