I paid some cash because the project shows potential and I like where it is headed, as have some of the others I've had the privilege of speaking with in-game. I am interested in how this game will grow to be unique from Inno's other games, yet still maintain their general tenets and "feel." Particularly, I want to see how Inno will distinguish itself from their similar game, Forge of Empires. The game is at V0.15 currently, they have a ways to go before V1.0 is released. As players, we can influence the direction this game will take and watch it grow. Of course, this being a game from InnoGames, it is free-to-play, but with premium advantages and no-ads. Right now, the cooperative and competitive aspects of the game are limited - who's to say what the future holds for this game, but I am hopeful.I'm a bit confused. What exactly is the purpose of the game? I get that you build up a city, but it has world rankings, and so far it seems like it's more of a cooperative game than a competitive one. There's no way to damage or destroy other players cities? Not sure why people would pay to build their city faster than another player if there is no real downside to building slower than them.
