While the Drengin Empire may hate you, your pets and your hair cut, we at Stardock love you and thank you for your continuing support with Galactic Civilizations.  We look forward to continuing this saga someday in the future!

Doing almost as well as Ys Origins was earlier this week. Pretty good!

Actually at one point, when it was 75% off, it was the 3rd most sold game on Steam.

Hey Brad maybe when you have a weekend away from Fallen Enchantress you could quickly put together a patch for GalCiv, you know it needs it! Small things like wrong technology categories, too low AI values for some techs, and maybe teach the AI to make proper use of influence starbases. I'm sure you're also aware that the AI can only use the first 100 starbase modules in the file.

We still love this game and as you can see it still brings new customers. We deserve a 2.05 at least And you guys deserve all the credit for this most awesome game.

  Awesome - from the gameplay to the user interface to the stories/AIcharacters;  and for a recently released game relatively few bugs (less bugs than myself accidently mouse-clicking somewhere I didn't want to click).

Hi Brad,

maybe GalCiv II still is (one of) the best strategy games out there. but "Endless Space" looks like a great successor. Usability and GUI wise they are doing a lot right. Looking forward to hear how GalCiv III will benefit from such competition

Here's the problem - now that they're all buddy-buddy with Valve, they've infected each other.  Steam now wants to market productivity software in addition to games, and Brad will not be able to release a 3rd game in a series.

Aug 2012 and I just bought my first copy. So yes, new players are still arriving.

So what's your first impression?

Through the years more and more 4x games are released and I realized that GalCiv2 w/its expansions is still by far one of the best out there. Although there were some good games released, nothing has really compared to it. @Voxhumana man you been missing out, well I hope you are prepared for many sleepless nights.

You are so right. While Endless Space (being hot news now) has potential and appeals to many people, it lacks the depth that GalCiv2 has. The more recent Legends of Pegasus, or the older Armada 2526, just make you appreciate GalCiv2 more.

Agreed.  Around the same time that GalCiv II peaked, the Civilization series went off the rails.  This just cemented GC2 as pretty much the only one I played anymore.

Utterly hooked.

Utterly hooked. I was kinda disappointed with Civ5, so I'd been poking around to find something else worthwhile in the TBS genre. So I'm delighted because this is a superb game.

GalCiv is still one of the best. Other than this, I am also hooked on the Paradox games, so if you are looking for a new game to play try some of those from the series Europa Universalis, Victoria etc. Nice stuff.

     How dissapointing...  Especially since the odds are that I shall probably remain an end user (and not part of a development team); forcing me to wait for what seems to be an eternity (not to mention an inprobability; but mentioning it anyway)... All in hopes that the features that deserve more attention and development will potentially be incorporated...

    But Windows 2013 will probably arrive first and send GalCiv I & II to bit heaven (just like Outpost 1.5 and SpaceBucks).  Perhaps I should start playing the lottery: with any luck I'll win the funds necessary to...  Unfortunately, that's a dream as far fetched as my hoping for a Gal Civ III with true inter-planetary and inter-galactic trade: where resources and supply lines shape one's strategies; where ships don't exist before the technology to create them does; where research on more than one thing at a time can be conducted; as well as co-operative and competetive multi-player capabilities.

    Ahhh dreams.

Yes! Paradox games! When you catch a Steam sale, get some, they're awesome. But only if you're into politics, diplomacy and grand strategy. They're pretty realistic, so conquering the world is not really a feasible goal. Their games cover every era from the Roman Republic to WW2. Definitely something to check out, but it's a completely different experience from GalCiv 2.

Speaking for myself, my post was a joke.
