    To the Moon is £1.19 on the Humble Store, with 20 hours to go. Just picked it up for myself, as I've not yet played it.

    New Star Soccer 5, which is a rather charming (if somewhat flawed) football RPG/action hybrid, is 93% off at Bundlestars. That's 1 dollar.

    A possible heads up that there might be something wrong with the "GOTY Edition" Bundle Stars are selling for Cognition, if anyone else is actually interested. Just tried the key and it didn't give me any errors, but it didn't add Episode 4 either. Then I tried it again and it said I already owned the game (not that the key had already been redeemed, mind), but it still wouldn't add Episode 4. I've sent them a ticket and posted on the Steam forums, but I suspect they're just selling Episode 1 bundled with the first soundtrack and calling it the GOTY edition (Steam clearly says it's supposed to have the complete season).

    EDIT: Eh, no, my mistake, game's just weird. Seems Episode 4 isn't listed as DLC at all, for some reason. I installed it anyway and it allowed me to start from that point, but there was still nothing in the Steam menu.

    Is their any reason it costs to much? Clearly the game failed to break into the mainstream and Rome 2 sits there being beautiful (if stupid).

    Dammit, that's really sad to see. The Hegemony series are great games, but those insipid Total War games seem to suck up all the oxygen in this particular strategy space.

    pop history and high production values are hard to compete with, in that subgenre. Two questions though. Is it fully realtime, like a paradox game, or a hybrid? 2nd, can you actually play as the various gallic tribes, or is it just rome?

    Fully real time (with ability to pause and issue orders), but Paradox would be a bad comparison because Hegemony gives you drastically more control over your units, and is much more interested in military tactics (and less in empire management) than Pdox games. It's a difference of zoom level, basically. Pdox games are very zoomed out, Hegemony takes a much closer view of a much smaller area. It's also got a very strong focus on logistics and supply, which is something I always appreciate in a wargame.

    You can play as any faction in the game (or nearly so) in the Sandbox mode. There are four non-sandbox campaigns (though they're still quite open in how you approach them) based on Caesar's journals from the Gallic campaigns which are the "main game mode" and there you can only play Rome.

    I note with disappointment that Hegemony Rome lacks a demo (I'm sure that's doing nothing to help them), but if you want to get a feel for the basics of the gameplay and structure its predecessor, Hegemony Wars in Ancient Greence does have a demo. Rome is prettier and polished up in some ways, but both games are structured similarly.

    Eh, for the price, I'll take a gamble. Sounds like my kind of game.

    I hope you like it. If you find you do, you may want to look at Wars in Ancient Greece anyway. Unlike Rome it covers a historical period that no other game seems interested in: the Peloponnesian War and the campaigns of Phillip of Macedon to unify Greece (which in turn allowed Alexander to do his thing when his father died).

    I have a copy of The Peloponnesian War laying around somewhere so that's definitely a time period that catches my interest. Almost completely unrelatedly, wasn't the original age of empires like the only other game actually set there? I could've sworn it was all about the athens v sparta showdown. Given how classically iconic that is, it is quite bizarre fewer games bother with it.

    FWIW I played the old Hegemony demo and it looked like a pretty unique and interesting title compared to most other strategy games I've been exposed to (which is not saying much, but...)

    I barely played AoE1, and the little bit I did play was more "prehistory" than that, but I really don't know. It is very strange that it's such an untreated era, there's so much capacity for great gaming (and great story generation) in that conflict.
