I ended up not actually playing any more of Majesty 2 after its pre-release code, but Alec didn't find its city-management totally revolting. Or at least it didn't increase the amount of dark woe in his black heart more than was there before he started playing, leading him to descend into his special dank pit, to carve gargoyles of all those who raise his ire. Which translates to "Quite Good" or "7/10, probably" in most people's scales. Anyway, its expansion is out now. Its top-level features are a new campaign, a randomise feature to add to a mission's replayability and more mod support. Full details and purchase options on its site and the launch trailer can be found below. Any big Majesty 2 fans in the house? By which I mean, website comments thread.
And now this has got me listening to early nineties indie-nobodies Kingmaker.
I'm too easily impressionable, me. No-one try and sell me any magic beans. I need this cow. My mum will kill me if you make me give it awa...
Okay. Beans! Magic beans!
