Here is a review of the game by none other than The Mighty Jingles.

Wow, they got some serious talent in the voice acting department for this. Bringing out the big guns of science fiction.

Seen this getting more activity over the last couple of weeks. Nice to see its hit steam as well. Though I suspect like many more recent strategy titles it'll be followed by DLC packs. It remains to be seen if the game itself and additional content will be worth the bother and price. But I hope the remake lives up to expectations and memories of the originals.

No Elerians, though. Hopefully they'll come later. No Gnolams or Trilarians either. That's a shame.

Elerians they were added in MoO2. This remake of the first game, where any blue elves still have not delivered ;)

But can add in DLC. Or fans create appropriate mods, if possible modmaker.

I believe the game is still in it's early stages, there are a few more races to be released.

Hopefully with all of this MoO fervor Outsider will be getting a bump in traffic. Patreon as well.

Well, I still play MoO2 with DosBox. works fine for me, so I do not see any reason to blow that much money for a mere remake.

I think the same and by the way: since that 3rd part, I will certainly not buy a MoO game right from the start again.

I was oh so lucky a friend had it before I was able to get to the shop.
I found it overly complex and unplayable.
And the story just made me whince and left me confused.

Just like there was no Star Control 3.

I believe the official stance from the company is that the initial release will have the 10 original MOO1 races only (and an alternate human "Khanate" reskin for those who preorder), but the 3 MOO2 additions might be added via DLC or expansion if the game does well.

I went ahead and sprung for the early access after some friends with a pretty high bar for 4Xs bought it and didn't hate it. And I have to agree with that, I don't hate it. It doesn't bring back the things about MoO1 I really wish someone would give a modern retread, but it plays pretty well, looks pretty good, and has quite an attention getting voice cast. It also reminds me a lot of endless space, in some mechanics and UI style, but with an entirely different battle system.

Not sure how much more work they're planning on putting into this before calling it finished, but it's a pretty solid foundation at this stage.

Well Siber, it still not fully completed. So that MoO1 feeling may come a little later :)


Also been replaying MoO-2 selected the elerian and... default name for the commander : Graywind. There no denying it now. Loroi are Elerian :D

IIRC the three advisers map decently onto Beryl, Tempo, and Fireblade, in color palette at the very least.

As for the new game, the systems I'd like to see successors to are different enough on a fundamental level to what's going on in it that I very much doubt we'll see significant trend towards that. But there's still fun to be had here, and I've already concluded that the only way to get the game I'm pining after will be to make it.

Some of the advisers are rather too chatty though.

I was going to pick up the early release until a friend "lost" his empire to a game bug (or the AI has an empire eating super weapon). Maybe I'll fall prey to wanting it again over the weekend, but for now I'll wait a bit longer for some updates to fix things. I still have a sour taste in my mouth after pre-ordering SoTS2 and it sucking badly a few years ago.

I have read some reviews on steam that were less than favorable. Are there really starlanes and no turn based combat now? :shock:
Anyway, I am wayting for anproper review till I dump money in it.

well SoTS2 was the final product.

basically what they do with MoO is having us pay to be beta tester :)

That's a problem I find appearing everywhere: they want you to pay in advance for a not-finished product, so you do not know what you paid for, nor when it will be delivered, if at all...

Marketing hypes makes money.
