I'm sorry about your deep disappointment Vaalen! The game is rather ambitious and so an announcement would have been premature. Not that the project can be cancelled or is not in a good shape, but once you announce something, the process is to release regularly diaries and screenshots and that's a bit too early for that.
But don't despair, first I think the game will be at least as good as Empires and second, I believe we are just a few months from beta, and so you'll know at least the subject at this time, with probably an official forum.
It takes time to do things right
Thank you for the update, Pocus. You have resolved my worries about the game, and I am no longer upset. I had feared that it would never be, and you have made it clear that the game needs further work before it can be announced. It also helped immensely that you gave an estimate on when the game will reach Beta.
Field of Glory 2 Empires, is easily the best game ever published by Slitherine, and one of the best games ever published by anyone.
Since its release, I have played it more than all the rest of my many games together. It is always fresh, always exciting, and the system creates many challenges at different points of the game. There is simply nothing else like it, and I am confident that the game you are working on will be even better.
I fully support your taking the time to do the game right, and I regret my emotional outburst. But I am glad that you clarified what is actually happening.
