IF you have an interest in 4X games, AND you have a Windows PC, THEN perhaps you'd like to test a simple little 4X game I've been working on:
It's way less than done, and none of the art is final, but it's enough to get the idea of what I'm doing. The zip file contains an EXE and some data in sub-directories. Just unpack it to a directory (NOT your desktop) and it should run.
If there's a DirectX error, you may need to google "DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer", and install that.
Please email me directly at techbear AT gmail.com with your suggestions. Thanks!
