Okay, ENOUGH. Do you know how many games I’m currently playing that have me in charge of determining the fate of the world? A lot! I am just one man! Whether bending it to my will a la Civ V or saving it from aliens a la… basically every game ever, the world and its fate is all up in my business. And along comes Red Redemption Games (no word on whether Langdell will encourage Rockstar to sue them) with word that a game about the fate of the world, one that I first read about in Wired ages ago, is now available for pre-order, with full beta access to those who pony up the quid. What’s this game about the fate of the world called? Fate of the World.
It’s a Solium Infernum-ish card/strategy sort of thing, and one that I fully intended to buy until I learned today that the 50% off beta price is £9.99, or not far from $25, meaning that they at Red Redemption intend to charge commercial prices for what looks like a game built on the Adobe AIR platform. Now, I’ll take that back if it turns out to be awesome, but in the meantime, it smacks of a little avarice. Which can’t be good for the fate of the world!
Luckily I promised myself I’d only play scary games today, it being Halloween and all, or (knowing me) I’d buy the damned thing anyway.
Those who do pony up for the pre-order get full beta access, as mentioned before, along with a special edition of Fate of the World when it comes out.
