New gaming/Sequel
« on: March 10, 2011, 05:33:05 AM »
I think the reason why there isn't any sequel to alpha centauri is that this type of game is too complicated/or slow and also the games might last for too long. 95% of people I asked prefer fast games (Even TCP can be slow). Also, there is the fact that factions grow exponentially: this means any mineral invested in surplus in the beginning would means tenths of minerals later on and hundreds past 2250, so the player strength may be very different from one player to another and that's not what sells games. Anyhow what sells the most are maybe first person shooters(or RPGs or any type) with a little different guns and rules... and it's cool sometimes to play some,  but no more creative original games that the creators were not sure it's gonna sell :o(

Well, I'd say that everything you say is true, but AC is special - it must be, to garner so much attention after so many years.

There's an audience for the kind of patience-requiring game (with very STRONG storytelling elements) that SMAC(X) is, in other words...
