    Way to go Kael!

    I might have to use my refund store credit to re-purchase Elemental now that they have you on the team. :D

    i saw Wardell talking about a new producer and i wondered if it might be something like this... grats Kael, Elemental has a lot of potential!

    Elemental is actually a pretty decent game now that they have patched up the majority of the bugs, really looking forward to the 1.1 patch to update some of the mechanics and gameplay stuff.

    The biggest problem with Elemental? Didn't listen to the negative feedback, too many "yes men" in the company and the forums.

    yeah, got to close to their project and no one bothered to step back and say "wow, what a pile of crap. we should fix this."

    I'm just happy they have been working so hard to fix it since release, doing a lot of good work on it.

    Wow. Congratz, Kael.

    Wonder what this means for the next iteration of Fall From Heaven being worked on under 2K games.

    What I like is the mention of GalCiv... My drool factor just pegged a 10.

    Congrats, Kael.

    If you'll do for Elemental anything like you did for Civ4, it might still turn out as promised. :cooool:

    Yeah, it looks very promising. The game actually is kind of fun and its only going to get better.

    Perfect situation for Kael because Brad wants to step back from game design and focus more on other things. Bodes very well for the future of Elemental.

    We could finally have a true successor to Master of Magic. :D
