Crate Expectations: East India Company

This lavish historical combat'n'commerce title has been attracting a fair bit of attention from devout strategy types (Tom Chick's mammoth diary series, for instance), but we've barely mentioned it here. Why? Because we were too busy thinking up unusual celebrities to name future pets after, or something. (I'm totally going to own a dog called Edward Woodward one day.) So, rather than relying on our trusted words to guide your decision on this matter, you should try the demo instead. 800Mb to you, squire, including a taste of the trading and the naval combat. If that sounds like too much bandwidth to gamble on, there's a launch trailer below.

Regardless of their quality, some games just don't come off well in trailers, do they? LOOK AT A STRANGER LOOK AT SOME MENUS.

Anyone had a crack at EIC yet? Is this where Total Warites should be heading post-Empire?
