[GameInformer] Can't Play SimCity? Civitas Has You Covered - Page 3

post #21 of 61
Good job on missing my point, but not surprising. I'm for indie games and smaller titles getting funding, but whenever these games pop up in the storm of some other game with little to show I'm not going to start throwing money at it.

Agreed, these sort of startups are simply taking advantage of kneejerk reactions. There are plenty of good simcity alternatives that can be found cheaply, and you will get an immediate product and you know what you are paying for.

But maybe I am being to cynical, in which case I wish the developers luck and hope they create a great game.

They need about $10,000 a day to be fully funded. Looks like they are about to hit the $70,000 mark and they are on the 3rd day. They have a possibility of being fully funded.

While I agree that this is mostly just a kneejerk reaction, there aren't that many city building games(recent ones at least). You have Tropico which is pretty good, and Cities XL which is decent but has some issues. That's only 3 big-name series' in an increasingly popular genre. The more games the merrier IMO.

The game in the very core is good.

But it has always online DRM.

And no local savegames.

And no true singleplayer mode in a singleplayer game.

Nor true multiplayer mode on a forced online game.

Nor fixes the complaints we've been saying for years (no point in any other road arrangement except for square patterns, just to name the one that bothers me quite a lot).


It's not the game what sucks. It's EA's decisions. I could live with square patterns, I would be willing to sacrifice land efficiency for a nicer city. But I am not willing to sacrifice my experience because of some awful DRM decisions.

And those things, make the game suck for me. Thus any alternative is very welcome at this point.

I wouldn't back this because it REALLY sounds like that they don't know what they're doing and/or a scam because everyone is pissed off this week. That said, I welcome more city building games, and if this really does get made, I'll gladly check it out, but I'm not about to back what very well could be a scam.

Just watched the 20 minute teraforming video on their kickstarter site. It looked pretty neat, especially for alpha.

I'm interested in seeing where they go with this. But the way that the description and updates are written doesn't make me confident enough to actually back the project. It's almost as if it was written by a middle schooler... Though I guess I wouldn't rule out the possibility if a team of exceptional middle school kids creating an awesome game.

The fact that they are taking advantage of the situation prevents me from donating, the server problem timeframe has been a week, if they are confident about their project [and they should be, as they will be spending other people's money for it] they shouldn't be using shenanigans like this..
