Default Soren's economy RTS

Soren Johnson, of civ4 fame, is making a new game. It's RTS with a focus on resource economy. You can read a big interview with him right here.

It does sound interesting, despite calling it RTS. And the interview has a picture of EU4, so I already like it.

An interesting read, thanks.
I wonder why they did not talk about Railroad Tycoon as an influence. After all, that game had many resources, buildings to produce and consume these resources, a stock exchange, etc.

The game is now available on Steam, but it's Early Access. As I have enough games to play and enough games that are still Early Access, I won't touch it now. Not even with a stick. Not unless it's on discount in a Steam sale (yup, I'm a man of principles). But there's a nice preview on RPS, and it does sound interesting. Especially the words "spreadsheet balancing" piqued my interest. And krys is right, it does sound like Railroad Tycoon... and that's not a bad thing.

It looks ugly though according to screenshots.

Early access! I agree with Shabba, I will wait for a real game. Especially at that price-tag.

I dont mind early access per se, but I wont do early access at 37,- Much sooner buy Darkest Dungeon then.

I won't do early access at that price either, although the game sounds interesting.

One of my favorite game of all time after Civ was Dynatech on Amiga.
A nice real time economy game which was even a multiplayer one (a lot of simulated AIs), when real time was not for economy games at that time...

I always waited for a real-time economy game that could be a successor and with a little more depth. Let's see...
