Supremacy Gold

March 8th, 2005 by Troy Goodfellow · No Comments · Uncategorized

IGF finalist Supremacy: Four Paths to Power has gone gold at last. This sci-fi turn-based strategy game looks like it could be the sleeper hit of the year, the game that all the cool kids are talking about come spring.

It is also another game picked up by Matrix Games, quickly becoming the indie strategy developers’ publisher of choice. Though I still prefer a retail box to a digital download, the convenience of their game delivery system and smoothness of updates (and press relations) is making Matrix a personal favorite.

Not that all their games are good. In this month’s CGM, you will see my dismissive review of Gates of Troy, for example. But they show a willingness to take on indie projects from companies with a wide range of experience.

I am really looking forward to Supremacy. It has tactical ground combat a la X-Com and the space conquest thing going for it. When I get my copy and write my review, I’ll happily share my opinions.
