The one big discouraging thing for me is that the game is going to be outrageously expensive in Canada if the only way to get it is ordering direct from Shrapnel. I figure the end price to be between $95 and $125 depending on shipping method...

Is there any hope that this will be appearing on store shelves???

Thanks,
Ransack

Hey Tim, sue me I was tired after getting stuff setup Last night .

As far as shipping...

The shipping to Canada is no where NEAR that much, how did you come to that.

And yes we do have eventual plans to land SEIV in stores, eventual plans...

Richard,

"on the shelves" means to deal with distributors...do yourself a favor and don't do it.
I want every single buck for the developers and not for marketing people or distributors...
I'm old fashioned but wise..

No I agree with you.

One reason we started Shrapnel Games was to give developers an alternative to the cutthroat world of mainstream publishing and retail.

However once a certain point of Online sales are done we will be going that route. Nothing is firm yet so go ahead and order up a game .

Shrapnel is a very nice and excellent publisher. I hope this is one company that sticks around for a long time since I'm very pleased with the service they have provided me.

One question, can you tell the secret?

I see that many others share my pleasure that SE IV now has Shrapnel as its publisher. This should be a great partership - it's a "niche" game and Shrapnel is a "niche" publisher ("niche" in both cases meaning "for the select players who enjoy specialized games like this that could be lost in the mass marketplace and eaten up by mass-market fees"). I love games like Master of Orion II, Spaceward Ho! IV, and Imperium Galactica II, so I'm looking forward to Space Empires IV. This is very good news and a great addition to Shrapnel's expanding line-up.

For those of you who haven't seen SE IV, I need to say one thing. I am one of the beta-testers and it ROCKS HARD! Much sweeter than SE III (which I love!), and much prettier. Loaded with cool new features too! I can't wait for the full release!

droooool

PRE-ORDER THIS GAME NOW! Ok, so I downloaded the demo from one of the sites listed in this forum and although I have only gone through about 1/2 of the tutorial I am impressed. The menu/tech tree seems very extensive but overall very intuitive. I especially liked the possibilities that exist with the ship creation menu. Shrapnel should be taking some market share in the Space 4x genre from the impersonal publishers with this one. However, I am curious does anyone know why the info on the Shrapnel page says that a demo will not be available until 7 Aug? Is this a different demo then the one available from Maldafor (sp)? At any rate I can’t wait for the full Version, the graphics are very functional and more importantly I think the game play will be excellent, the multi-player possibilities making it even better.
