Brilliant.

"But. He typed his messages in that annoying text talk that replaces “you” with “u”, didn’t know where his shift key was, and had appalling grammar. I knew it was my destiny to destroy him for this disrespect. No alliance was formed. It was beneath me.

Instead, I set about being atypical. "

Wonderful stuff

Having spent countless hours playing RISK - Factions online this sounded so familiar. the alliances, the colours, the devious self serving. So vivid and funny, your review held my interest to the very end.


Don't panic!

You definitely skimped on the mechanics--I really have no idea how this game looks, if its menus are intuitive or much of anything that I like to know about games like this--but I liked what you wrote just the same because it does such a good job of capturing (assuming that I can trust your descriptions) what it is to play this game. I'm kind of interested in giving it a shot.

Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

Thanks, Will and Threetimes. Moreso for sticking with the review. I just kept coming up with words!

Which moves smoothly into Jason's comment. I didn;t want to harp on about the exact control devices because of the length somewhat, but, mainly, because it's as simple as it can be. I mentioned the fgame is scalled way, way back and, mechanically, it's as basic as basic can be. I don't think that's what makes the game, so it never felt like something that should get any more than a side note.

I'm thinking about getting a gaming diary together for my next game. We'll see what happens. Thanks, all, for reading!


For us. For them. For you.

It was certainly an interesting reading experience. I'm not sure I'd call it a review exactly, though it has made me want to play. The potential for backstabbing and deviousness sounds very enticing, I must admit.

I finished up my first game of Neptune's Pride a few days ago. I can see why you like it. I set out making alliances with people but all along intending to break certain ones once I'd achieved specific things. It went badly in the end, but I didn't come last despite being the only first-timer.
