On Standalone Fallen Enchantress

The Elemental War of Magic Website has further details on Fallen Enchantress, the recently announced follow-on to Elemental War of Magic. In this update Brad Wardell stresses that while Fallen Enchantress will be free to owners of Elemental who purchased the game last year, they actually consider this a new game (thanks Big Download). Here's a bit on why they are going this route, which also mentions that the eventual third installment in the Elemental series will also be free for those who bought Elemental before October 2010:

There is also another advantage to Fallen Enchantress being its own game rather than an “expansion pack”. And that is, it frees the team to make radical changes to the basics of the game while allowing War of Magic to still be updated on its own source tree. A user of Fallen Enchantress won’t have to have War of Magic to play it and can treat War of Magic as a separate game.

This will be the same case for the third entry in the Elemental world which won’t be out for a long time still (but will be free for people who got War of Magic before the end of October 2010). It’ll be its own game as well not requiring War of Magic and Fallen Enchantress but be available at a sharp discount to those who have the previous entries in the game world.

I have yet to play Elemental, but I've been keeping an eye it. Despite it flaws, I think it has some great ideas. Stardock is dedicated to making it a great game.

I am thinking Fallen Enchantress is suppose to be that great revamped game. I hope they succeed. I will continue keeping an eye on this updated Elemental. Hopefully I don't have to wait until the third edition to finally play a good game.
