Arcen Games

RPS has a sad post about Arcen Games today: AI War Devs In Financial Difficulty, Layoffs Imminent.

I went and bought their newest game, Starward Rogue, immediately.

I'm not going to say that I love all of their games, because I bounce right off some of them. There's almost no one else, though, that makes this flavor of dense, complex, intriguing games anymore, and some of their games (including my favorite, The Last Federation) are borderline masterpieces.

If anything Arcen is much better at making games then marketing themselves, and man, that's a tragic reason for a company to go under. They spent more time at making games than branding, and isn't that what we want?
