FYI, shows the Steam icon but is not a Steam key.

Mine was a Steam key. It shows a download button but then it just hands you a key instead when you click it.
Thanks! Salute

I see what you mean, now. So many of their free games lately have been on their site only. The download now button threw me off.
Yeah, that was confusing. Bad design.

I already own it, but I figured I'd drop my endorsement 'cuz I enjoyed the game so much. It's a great little 4x with a strong focus on tactical combat. The graphics have aged remarkably well; the proceduraly-generated maps are quite attractive IMO.

people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.
