Okay, so entrance into the prototype phase will cost you $80. But that’s not all, you get to make this leap with no real knowledge about the game other than the developer is Soren Johnson (Designer of Civilization IV) and his own team, Mohawk Games. There are no videos, screenshots or even comments about the game for the public to see because it’s all locked under a NDA. Hmm.

What I’ve Played – Hegemony Rome: The Rise of Caesar

PC Reviews
01 - The Battlefield

Three years ago was, I believe, the first time I bought a game directly from a developer based on just a quick look at trailers, having read no reviews.

Infested Planet, developed by relative newcomers Rocket Bear Games, is a real time tactics game combined with a bit of tower defense and seemingly taking a few cues from Space Invaders, filling the whole world with the enemies who will endlessly spawn if you can’t somehow break through the trillions of enemies and finally demolish one of the many hives. Is this as arduous as it sounds? Here’s what I think.
