Very much appreciate your feedback AerionIstari, I indeed remember you as one of our first members to the forums. I'm happy to hear you finally had the time to play Horizon after all those years and you found enjoyment.
With regards to "The Good": This kind of feedback is very valuable, it's good to hear how you find different parts of the game. So we can improve on or discard in our next game(s). In addition to the points you made if I could ask: did you like/enjoy the quest system or was that not too important for your enjoyment?
With regards to "The Bad": I plan on reviewing the Fighters balance. The rest you make some really good points which I'm mostly in agreement and will have to consider them for the next iteration of Horizon.
With regards to "The Ugly": Yes you can filter on/off map settings through the legend window as you found out. But to the point, the map is very functional but it's not "space" or more 3d. If we were to redo it it would be seamless (zoom-in/out) from strategic to tactical.
Again, overall this is a sweet little game! I'm really glad to see this game get published finally! I know it's been a labor of love for you and I hope it's a financial success for you as well!
Thank you, it's been quite a journey. 4x games are quite hard to make so we have had our ups and down, while Horizon wasn't a big hit, it's done well enough to allow us to get some valuable experience which we hope to apply for our next game.
