Yes, it is fun, Island Dog and thanks for the screenies. Even the Nintendo DS and Wii versions are getting good reviews.
I only have the demo at the moment. Even though I like it, I will probably wait a long while before buying the game itself. Two reasons, first is the DRM and second is there seems to be some omissions at the moment.
1. The Tages DRM: is either a game breaker or an annoyance depending. At the moment, purchasers cannot activate the game they bought because the Ubisoft authentication servers are down. This is how the Tages DRM can be a game breaker.
2. Posts on the official forum wonder where the help files and additional documentation you get when you register is hiding. Either it has not been released yet, or there is another Ubisoft server problem involved. Or worse.
3. There seems to be no map creator. Maps do get randomly generated, but the map creator mentioned during development has not shown up yet. Feedback seems to suggest it will not.
Yes, I like the game. I recommend the demo if your machine can run it. For me, though waiting is the best strategy.
A. The DRM situation may improve given the problems with the Ubisoft servers. Perhaps they will seek to reduce their problems by letting Impulse sell it without the Tages DRM?
B. I also want to see the promised help files and additonal documentation show up.
C. I also want to see a "Pause" command implemented. At the moment there seems to be none that I can find, even by thrashing forums.
