This game is amazing and a lot of fun to play BUT i have a few suggestions, first of all please make it so you can control the size of the map without changing how many teams are fighting (so for instance you could have 2 teams on a map 3 times as big as the biggest map). Secondly please add more free colonies.
New colony ideas and skins of the map details:
forests = a dead forest
Fruits = brains
Grass lands = barren wasteland
Buildings = destroyed houses
Hunting = humans
Fishing = zombie fishes

Forests = normal forest but different colours and some eyes coming out the trees and weird stuff like that
Fruits = small alien creatures that look like square purple cats or something
Grass lands = mars like landscape
Buildings = something modern looking (like an iphone)
Hunting = E.T in the woods
Fishing = the fishes from The Simpsons (orange with 3 eyes)

Forests = dead trees with bodies hanging from them?
Fruits = raw meat
Grass lands = barren with pools of blood
Buildings = castle like buildings (like in the transilvania film)
Hunting = humans
Fishing = a dead fish

Forests = old time looking
Fruits = boar heads
Grass lands = old time looking
Buildings = castles
Hunting = boar or a dragon or something like that
Fishing = sea beasts

Really good game but..

I really liked this game: it’s fun, addicting and you can play with friends on it. However I feel like some of the units are a little bit unbalanced such as the mind melder who can turn any unit including giants and battleships into the enemy. One game I had about six giants 20ish swordsmen etc. Then about ten mind melters (all armoured) came after me out of an undiscovered area and took out all of my giants. I then lost seven cities before I killed all of my giants but by the time I killed all the giants about 20 mind melders had surrounded my defeated cities and every time I shot them with catapults they just got 2 more to replace them. after about half an hour of basically no progress I had to give up because I had gotten nowhere near any enemy city. I’ve also experienced this zero progress problem when I’m against catapults that I can’t see In an undiscovered zone as they can shoot me before my riders get near enough to see them on the map. Despite these issues I haven’t been able to stay away from the game and I would definitely recommend it for anyone who likes a complex strategy game

Love it but it needs an overhaul of mechanics.

It’s hard to give it only 2 stars as I love playing it but unfortunately, with all the mechanics build in, there’s only one way of winning this game and that is producing as many stars as possible per turn. You can see stars as your production, the more production the more you can produce every turn. However, the overhaul of the stars will come from the Amount of cities you have and there lies the problem with this game. That is the only factor that decides if you win or lose, the amount of cities you have. There are a few ways to get extra stars but again, they will grow out of the amount of cities you have and things you research for which... you need stars. If the map the game creates means you have no access to many cities (before your opponents take them), you lose. There’s no equality towards that. You have cities, you win but if not you lose. Simple as that and very unfortunate given all the mechanics they build in are rendered useless just because of that.
