I would like to think that there is a difference between obvious and hidden. By that I mean even if it isn't obvious, that doesn't make it hidden.
Before I get flamed to cinders: The game sounds cool, I'm interested and I trust Stardock. I heard about it, so I'm good. Nothing needs to be changed to satisfy me personally.
But - I am confused.
There is zero reference to Elemental on the steam page. And as an inquisitive sort, that makes me wonder, why? At first I thought it was some sort of complete rip off of elemental by a different developer(for about 5 secs that is).
Fallen Enchantress and Legendary Heroes have earned a respectful spot among the pillars of this genre. Why not shout from the mountain tops that this is the next Elemental game? That would have peaked my interest immediately.
Are you deliberately downplaying the relationship between this and that? Is it because you want the headline to be the asymmetrical aspect of the game design as opposed to the idea of a continuation? Or am I over valuing the "street cred" of FE:LH?
Omission of the Elemental tie provides fodder to those that would seek to portray it as a underhanded re-skin.
Why avoid your brand? It is a good one.
