Well, the good news is, the company Ageod still exists, Pocus and the 2 McNeils of Slitherine/Matrix are listed as officers. And they've got a new game engine and a new game in the pipline.

Re: Poll. Future of the AGE engine.

I have redone the AI for the new engine, taking aspirations from the old Athena AI and improving things as I learned from that. Currently I would say the new AI is at least 6x time, perhaps 10x faster than the previous. And there will be multi-choices decisions in the first game :pouet: This is gre...

Re: Poll. New engine first game.

I'd like Ageod to lean more towards empire building no matter what era. So more grand strategy than operational art. Even if that does mean one month turns. But with a strong historical focus. I think, empire building is why Paradox games, Total War games plus Civilzation are the most popular "...

Re: Poll. To be or not to be hexed.

Didn't vote b/c it really depends on scale and era: All Ageod games I played (sans the Spanish Civil War and WOS) work just fine with areas. Besides To End all Wars. IMO WW1 (and WW2) with frontlines and huge troop numbers would be better represented by hexes. I find TEAW visually rather confusing. ...

Why weekly or bi-monthly turns? 1560 to 3120 turns for the grand campaign? In PON you don't have 60 years of never ending war needing to micromanage armies. There are not enough regions for sub-strategic, aka operational warfare. If I want to play the American Civil War on an operational scale I'm g...
