It's A Small World. Let's Keep It That Way.
Just a quickie before I disappear for the weekend. Soren "Civ 4" Johnson has just tweeted about Small Worlds, saying "What a beautiful game. This is the next-gen Prince of Persia game I always wanted to play...". I agree, and think you should play it without any further elaboration. It's a magically-presented exploration game. Magical. That's the world. Go lose yourself.
