Hey, my name is Thor Jensen and I'm an assistant designer at Black Hammer, the developers of Supremacy: Four Paths to Power. I just wanted to step in here to say that in no way, shape or form is our game related to the 1991 Amiga title Supremacy: Your Will Be Done. When we were brainstorming game names during the beginning of our development cycle, we had no idea that there was already a game with a similar name published in the UK over a decade ago. A search of US game databases revealed no matches so we went ahead with the production. Since learning about this other game, we've taken the opportunity to play it and you guys are right - it's great! But it's a very different game, with very different play mechanics than what we're making.
We're not looking to ride on any coattails or steal any glory - we just want to make the best turn-based strategy games we can possibly make. So far, Supremacy: Four Paths To Power is turning out pretty damned good. All I ask is that you don't carry any bias against the game due to its similar title - I think on it's own merits it'll give you plenty to be happy about. And maybe in 15 years when some other new developer puts out something called "Supremacy: Inside The Hive Mind" or something we'll be lucky enough to have fans who remember our work with such fondness as well, because that's really the best thing a developer can hope for.
Thanks for your comments.
