Important Difference Between Colosseum and Other 'Video' Games
Here is an important difference between Colosseum and other multi-player online games... It's a 'graphics driven text-based game.' We use graphical content (maps, images, etc.) to speed up the navigation of the game but at some point, you'll drop to a level that requires reading and analysis. That's where the text takes over.
If you don't like to read stories or you just want to click a few buttons and walk away, this game is not for you. We know that the market for text games is small - we don't care about having millions of players. What we want is to develop a solid, content rich game for the small amount of people who understand what strategy really is.
