Summary: Pre-ordered this game through Steam had hopes for it but it was released in extremely unfinished state and appeared to need at least another 6 months to a year before it could be close to looking like a finished product. That being said the game will never be fixed because the studio went bankrupt not long after the game was released and it will never get any better.
Summary: OK, I bought this game a while back as a Steam DLC product and already got my refund for it. It was totally unplayable form the get go and despite patching kept crashing. It is not going to get better. The developer Novacore Studios has gone into bankruptcy which means no more patches. Here is copy from the Novacore website. We very much regret to inform that the Novacore Studios UG has to quit the operation and further development work because of insolvency.
Summary: The company just closed up shop and that's that. No patches no fixes and they wont release the source code for others to fix/finish. DO NOT buy this steaming piece of crap. Stay away...FAR AWAY.
Summary: I was just about to order this on Steam until I saw the reviews. I will wait until I see better reviews from many people, especially those that already reviewed. It appears this is another software company that went after the dollar instead of presenting a finished and polished product. The other consideration is they thought it was done and great, in which case they are in the wrong business.
For my 40 bucks all I get to do is give 1 star reviews.

Summary: I acquired this game via Steam. After install the game would not start short of a black screen. Few hours of forums and package installs...I got a logo, once. Never have seen what the game looks like. Steam support told me to contact developer for the refund I asked for. Denied, was sent a code for some of their other games to "Compensate" me. Other games have a net value of 10 bucks. I learned a lesson....ALWAYS look at the support forum before I buy a game.
Summary: I'm not going to waste my time in explaining all the problems other than two. I can actually 'play' this game, however, it hangs or locks up or crashes anytime from 5 turns to 50 turns in. I could actually put up with this, maybe, for a while, but this leads to the second issue, the game won't load the saved or autosaved games. Doesn't that seem a bit of a problem for a game that relies on thousands of turns and 40+ hours of gameplay?
Summary: FRAUD. Game feels like an early alpha. Placeholder text everywhere, UI is clunky, text is cut off, multiple CTD bugs, multiple save/load issues. Definitely not ready for release but was shoved out the door to take advantage of preorders and folks who ordered through retailers that don't give refunds no matter what *cough*STEAM*cough*. The publisher then has the nerve to say they were SURPRISED by the "rough launch" on their official forums.
