Its rare to say this or to do this, but alas an intervention may be required…
It seems a rogue artist has demolished a game. Demolished I say. So completely, so thoroughly, so absolutely that there is no redemption. None. This game will never be know save for its cringe worthy art. [Is this a clever ploy by Compass Games marketing to try and steal the crown for worst map ever? Notoriety has a certain cachet does it not?
Surely the oh so gentle Mr Train is not a co conspirator? Would he stoop to such lengths to have his name in lights? Surely not!
This ladies and gents is the 2nd worst map I have ever seen. Brian’s design is something we may never experience due to the dis orientating, nauseating, discordant disaster that is this map:
This is the URL for ordering. I DARE YOU TOO!
As one astute BigBoard reader noted it is ” top-down photoreal elements used for water features, set against 2D profiles of trees and deer, with isometric views of some cities, or fortresses or whatever. It’s a pretty horrifying mishmash of perspectives and graphic styles for one map.”
What to do? It is expected to be released December 14th? So surely poor subscribers are now anxiously bracing for this hideous object de arte to arrive and quickly douse it in flammables upon receipt.
What if those that have ordered the game or those that are interested email Compass Games or called them and SAID “NO!! We won’t stand for it?’ hmmm…Could we? Should we?
What if we started a go fund me for a few hundred dollars to have the map re done? How hard could that be?
Well damn it all lets find out.
Thus on the bigboard facebook page [look for the event titled Finnish Civil War map Rescue] and here register your unease and lets request a new map from a new artist!
Or commission a map to be done and I’ll make them available from here somehow and print them myself.
It can be done people. At worst even if we got a bloody PDF to print out it would be better than this 7 year olds one eyed attempt at color by numbers.
Lets SAVE THE GAME!!!!
