Default Playing the game? Leave a review!

As you know, the game released yesterday, and the community is growing! Now we try to grow it even further!

If you are playing the game, please take a moment to review it on Steam. These reviews help people find the game faster, and give them the affirmation to download it. The more downloads, the more opponents to take on in multiplayer battles!

Thanks everyone, hope you're enjoying Ogre!

same here! Love it for the most part, found a couple little nagging things but way better than having no OGRE pc game (which was my state since my apple //e died in '88)

It's pretty much what I hoped for, except for two issues: The AI is not smart, and there are no GEV maps or scenarios.

I want it to play with friends, so the AI being routinely beatable is not a big deal.

As for the GEV maps and scenarios, Auroch assures me (link requires logging into Steam's Community service) that they're coming. I can live with that.

Honestly, it's everything I hoped for. It'll let me play with my friend, Pete, who lives over 1,700 miles away. Once we can play our favorite scenario (Raid), it'll be nigh unto perfect as far as we're concerned.

Love the game, having a blast, and it's actually prompting some of my friends to play IRL now too--as they like being able to get comfortable playing on their own against the AI before playing against real people.

#1 thing I would like to see change is moving stacks. During the fire phase I can check all the units I'd like to fire. It would be nice to be able to check units of the same type and move them at once. Moving 6 stacks of 5 GEVs takes forever!

We've had this recommended a few times and it's something we're looking at ways to improve. Thanks as always for the feedback!
