Actually, I think we all "caught" it. It just took you an unusually long time to figure that out.

Yeah. In his pompous remark he somehow missed the reference to Napoleon.
I think you'll find the majority of English speakers over 18 have read Animal Farm.
Or, well, maybe more recently the Cliff's Notes.

I think the satirical element, the pigs revolting, is lost on the average gamer.
The satirical element of Orwell's Animal Farm is lost on the average person.

Edit: It seems Zoomboy27 did actually catch it. Maybe there is still hope for the world.

I imagine this is a better game than the JA sequels in the works.

The game doesn't look like it breaks any new ground as far as gameplay goes. Not even pigs are really new, since I seem to remember a game a while back that had pigs vs. rabbits. Yep, just checked. It was called S.W.I.N.E. RTS type game, and fairly fun for its time.

Information doesn't want to be free, it wants to be tied up and spanked. It told me so itself, in a naughty little whisper.

It is a strange concept for a game though. Satire only goes so far, they better have the gameplay to back it up.

I bet the game's characters look something like this:

You know what's sad? I had some of those when I was a kid.

Jagged Farm - I thought is was another Jagged Alliance sequel. Turn-based pigs mmmmmm

The sad thing is that this one may actually see the light of day, unlike the other two JA sequels "in development" right now.

Remember, when putting together your army:
All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.

...I wonder if Napoleon could be a playable character...
