I Miss this Game

    I really miss playing/looking forward to Clockwork Empires.

    I can still play it, of course. It didn't vanish from Steam. But it's frustrating and incomplete as usual. While it was under development, its flaws could be overlooked in the hopes they'd eventually be corrected. Now that it's no longer being developed, the problems and missing pieces loom even larger than before.

    It's funny, though. For all its issues, CE has a feel unlike any other game I've played. I've been poking at Rimworld recently, hoping to make use of its extensive modding options to make a CE mod, and while I'm hopeful about game play elements, RW doesn't look nearly as nice. Top down 2D, simple graphics, little animation. It's not evocative.

    CE looks so great, though. I was reading some old threads about malfeasant clawbulbs (remember those?), and just seeing the screen shots of people's colonies was enjoyable. I miss the idea of what CE sought to be.

    No point here, just venting. Thanks.

    Though a set up where it was like World of Dredmor would have been amusing, where you "mine" dungeons by sending groups of adventurers and also getting them equipment or so on.

    That's actually something really interesting! I would definitely pitch some money at that if it was ever made. Necro time!! *toot toot*
