Not even worth a dollar...

If you're in it for the achievements, still don't bother. They've been disabled beacause you can only get them online, but there is no online play anymore. So yeah...

If I remember right, the story with this game was that basically one guy made it, he then went to Paradox to publish it because he needed the extra funds, and that by doing so, he became trapped by some sort of constraint that led to him completely abandoning the game.

I don't know, it's all kinda hazy. It was 2012, right when Steam opened the floodgates and started letting everyone/forcing everyone to use their services/DRM, which allowed us all to sample/be overwhelmed, drowned and choked, by an almost infinite amount of indie/completely-horrible-unpolished-garbage games. That's when it all went downhill, and the story of this game is the story of Steam. So buy it, if only to witness a part of history which, much like the game itself, has absolutely nothing to do with what happened at Gettysburg.

10/0. Would throw money away again!
