it looks interesting

It's Global Thermonuclear War, and nobody wins.
But maybe - just maybe - you can lose the least.

yeah I preordered the game through Steam for only $10. Pretty neat for that low of a price, they really did a good job with the "simple but hard to master" type gameplay.

I downloaded the demo, but haven't tried it yet. Looks like fun, though.

Their other games (Darwinia and Uplink) have been good.

Tried it, very slick presentation. A++ on widescreen autodetection. Unfortunately, I managed to mess up the tutorial such that it wouldn't continue. Also, even on max speed things are a little bit slow, although that was probably by design.

Yeah. I played through the tutorial. Finished it, didn't get stuck although I saw where you could have. Seemed slow, I'm assuming you cannot speed up time in multiplayer? Or everyone has to agree on it? I donno if I could sit there for 3 hours ever so slowly moving my boats around while trying to nuke things. Looks great, good idea, maybe a little slow. But then again, I haven't played it online against real people.

Yeah, I'm going to try it online before I make any final judgements, but I like the premise and inferface (reminds me very much of Dr. Strangelove's "Big Board"), but the game is a little too slow for my tastes. It's neat that you can play it in "real time," but I doubt I have the patience for that.

Wouldn't you prefer a good game of chess?

Chess on crack is bughouse, but CPMA and Warsow are close enough :)

Joshua: Shall we play a game?
David Lightman: How about Global Thermonuclear War.
Joshua: Wouldn't you prefer a nice game of chess?
David Lightman: Later. Right now lets play Global Thermonuclear War.
Joshua: Fine.
--------------------------------
David Lightman: Is this a game or is it real?
Joshua: What's the difference?
-------------------------------------
David Lightman: What is the primary goal?
Joshua: You should know, Professor. You programmed me.
David Lightman: C'mon. What is the primary goal?
Joshua: To win the game.
-----------------------------

Stephen Falken: Except, that I never could get Joshua to learn the most important lesson.
David Lightman: What's that?
Stephen Falken: Futility. That there's a time when you should just give up.
Jennifer: What kind of a lesson is that?
Stephen Falken: Did you ever play tic-tac-toe?
Jennifer: Yeah, of course.
Stephen Falken: But you don't anymore.
Jennifer: No.
Stephen Falken: Why?
Jennifer: Because it's a boring game. It's always a tie.
Stephen Falken: Exactly. There's no way to win. The game itself is pointless!
------------------------------------------------
Stephen Falken: General, you are listening to a machine. Do the world a favor and don't act like one.
---------------------------------
After playing out all possible outcomes for Global Thermonuclear War
Joshua: Greetings, Professor Falken.
Stephen Falken: Hello, Joshua.
Joshua: A strange game. The only winning move is not to play. How about a nice game of chess?
