You may also remember that this game went the way of the dodo following a couple of issue surrounding the company losing financial backing and a subsequent failed Kickstarter. (BTW, it’s officially deader than dead, as the website is now offline, so you simply cannot connect/download and play the game anymore)
Hairbrained Schemes have just announced that Golum Arcana, which was the next attempt at producing a computer-moderated wargame, has come to the end of its product line.
From their announcement:
“…We poured our hearts and souls, as well as millions of our dollars, into a landmark development in tabletop hybrid games. We’re very proud of this game, with glowing reviews by everyone from Penny Arcade to Game Informer, and an Origins Award for Best Miniature Figure Rules. Unfortunately, sales have not recouped our extensive investment in software and manufacturing…”
The product line will be on sale until the end of February (at a 50% discount), at which point the webstore will be closed.
It would seem on this evidence seems that wargamers are simply not in the market for a computer moderated wargame.
