The video game has something almost game like rendering on screen now. Sure, it’s the board game pieces but that’s where we’re starting. First we get everything up an running as if it were the board game. Then we add all the animations and fancy effects and shiny wooshy things.
Don’t worry though. We are keeping the “Board Game” version as a playable option cause we know a lot of people will prefer to go hardcore board gamer… and ignore all the nice visual extras we spent months toiling over to make everything animated and pretty. Of course I’m only pretending to be bitter. If you buy the game then all of us here will love you regardless of how you play it. That’s why we’re keeping the option.
