How did you find out about Founders’ Fortune?
I found out about Founder’s Fortune through Colonel Failure’s YT channel … after watching his first go at the game, I thought that looks interesting and went to Steam and bought it.
My first computer was a Sinclair Spectrum 48K (1983) … can you imagine playing on a computer with 48Kb ram and 4.7 Mhz CPU … I then advanced to an Amiga 500 (7.4 Mhz) then Amiga 1200 (20 Mhz which I still have in the celler) … after Amiga (Commadore) went broke I turned to PC’s (1995 200 Mhz) and now PC with 3,0 Ghz 4 core
Have you played other colony simulators before? Base building games? What do you like about them?
Well as you can imagine from the above I’ve played quite a few games over the last 36 years … at first mostly text adventures (Spectrum 48K) … on the Amiga I then became a fan of simulation/city building games as in Railroad Tycoon,The Settlers, from which I’ve played all versions, I also liked the early RTS games such as Earth 2160 … nowadays its mostly Railway games Transport Fever, Railway Empire … and Indie Mashinky, Railroad Corporation and city build Cliff Empire, Mercury Fallen, Depraved, Space Colony to name a few and now Founders Fortune … I like it when these games have a Sandbox Mode so you can take your time and experiment, instead of having to rush things … but Sandbox should have starting options to set it up, as in more/less/endless money and random maps
What’s your favorite other game? Why?
This is hard to answer … all Railway games and City building as the above list shows, my favorit though is Railway Empire
What’s your opinion on Indie games vs big budget blockbusters?
I like watching the way the Indie games develop … two good examples are Cliff Empire and Depraved … the Dev’s from these games are always putting out updates, whereas with AAA games the updates come every couple of months or longer although there are known bugs in the game
So that’s it from me … as you can see from the above I’m one of the older generation (67) … wish you the best of luck with this project and I will be following you on your journey
