... but I thought I'd put it out there, but first with some background.... I play Clockwork Empires pretty much every day. Almost to the complete exclusion of other games. I find it terribly engaging, even when I know I am going through the same basic motions each time I start a new colony (which I do terribly often). But do I do this because the game, as it currently stands, is that good? Or do I do it because I can sense what an incredible experience it is becoming with each new version? I mean we all know that we are just seeing the tip of the iceberg with the current version. There are so many other mechanics we just get hints of right now. But we play for the now, or do we play for the next?
