Space Empires 4... Although I have not played any of the previous Versions I love the 4x space games, and this one looks like a winner. Going to wait until the demo is available for download but I have a feeling I will be pre-ordring this one. Does anyone know if it has pbem support?

Congrats on landing this one guys!

I have been playing the demo at work quite a bit (gotta love the IT bus. )

I have never played any of the previous SE games but I am 99% sold on this one. Its got that...just one more turn feel for me.

That is NOT a good thing to have in a game at work btw

This looks like a winner.

I was a devout MOO & MOO2 addict. I have been a bit less than captivated by some of the other offering - too much micromanagement, not enough cool stuff.

When the new demo comes out I'll be having a closer look.

The only drawback of an August demo date is that I expect to be spending most of my eveneings with Steel Beasts.

Good luck with this one.

Oh well, I'm one of the hard core Se3 fans...I have played SE3 100 more times than every other game (hey, and still I'm playing!).
Not nice graphics of course, but in my opinion (and not is only my opinion), the better 4x game that I ever saw (well, I loved Moo2 too).

Now, with SE4, I'm not expecting less from MM... for that reason I'll be demanding with SE4!!!
I hope that this time, Aaron can get some reward for his great work!

And yea, Jars_u, SE4 have pbem support.

...and now if Richard could learn to spell "secret"

We are glad to have this awesome game! Thanks Aaron, you have a winner if the first 12 hours of Pre-sales are any indication.

For those of you who have not played any of the SE games, you're in for a treat! SE4 is like MOO 2 on steriods. Everything is customizable, and there are automated ministers for just about anything you don't want to do yourself. Of course, you can do everything if you want to.
You develop ships from components, and can save their templates for future games. Same is true for races.
Get the demo, and give it some time. It takes a while to get used to, but that's the price you pay to be able to do soo much!

Enjoy,

Aloid
