It sure sounds like fun, if they do it well.

I will never have a computer that runs this game, much less the game itself, but it looks absolutely phenomenal. If anyone gets the Toronto Star there was a special on it in today's Sunday edition.

It's got massive playability and replay value from the looks of it.

I can't believe that I didn't look at this before. This looks like it'll be one of the best RTS-type games of all time.

Everything that I've read indicates that a couple of the stages will be very RTS-like.

it's a mixture of real-time strategy and simulation... perhaps even a little city-building.

The city building and Civ-like stages of the game will probably have some light RTS elements. I wouldn't count on it being deep, though. The RTS part will probably be very basic.

Yeah, I think you're right, the RTS parts of it will probably be more on par to Black & White 2.

Can anyone tell if you can design your own UFO as well? I only saw the one 40 minute video that had a pretty generic looking saucer UFO.

And can you evolve your people further after Tribal? They all pretty much looked the same for Tribal City and Space.

Did anyone play SimLife back in the day? Because this sounds like a fun version of that (at least in the beginning stages).

I hope that by the time your creatures reach "Space Age", it turns into a MMORPG.

I wouldn't be surprised if they ended up making a separate MMO with this game; like they did with The Sims and The Sims Online.

The way I see it though, this game would lose some of its awesomeness if all the other planets were real people. Like the fact that you can just death-star a planet with your UFO, like in the video, would fuck with new players pretty badly.
