Default Strategy First acquires Malfador Machinations

According to Wargamer.com:
http://www.wargamer.com/news/news.asp?nid=3216

Aaron will stay on in a management role for Space Empires. But otherwise I'm not sure what to say at the moment... we'll have to see what word comes from MM, SFI.

Bah.

"The remarkable, ongoing sales of existing games and the tremendous, built-up anticipation for the release of Space Empires V give us confidence that the intellectual property we have acquired will have long-term value as the preeminent space genre game franchise."

Another cow to milk.

Is this true? Or is it a late April Fools joke...I don't know which to hope for...stunning news to be sure.

I really hate to be the one screaming, "the sky is falling," but this means that it is possible for Aaron to lose control of the franchise in the future.

However, at least a company with a proven track record of listening to the users is the one to aquire it.

I hope this turns out well.....And is not just a way of turning the game into some online FPS-Snipehunt-makebelieveRP game.

Any speculation on what this will do to SE5 and the future of the franchise?

Rather than speculate, I am awaiting reply from the man himself. I recommend you all do the same (wait, that is).

I also fired off an email, and asked Aaron if he would visit us here and explain what this means for the franchise and the future of SE games.

Yoda would say: The future hard to see it is…

I would say: This does not bode well for the future!

I guess I am not as optimistic as Yoda may be. I predict the first few years may be smooth sailing but after that we will all be saying our final goodbyes to each other as the game falls into the gutters.

I have been wrong more than once in my life and I hope this is one of those times.
