    Back in 2012 we thought that Alea Jacta Est was a pretty groovy ancient era wargame. Well, I'm happy to say it still is and apparantly it's suddenly scheduled to be released on our favorite porn deletion service Steam. No idea what price range or if they'll put up all the dlc scenarios and expansions as extra dlc. And what about achievements. Can't have no achievements, now can we? Bit of a surprise this, really. Then again, more quality wargames on Steam is not a bad thing.

    Great. First AGEOD game that clicked with me.

    Grabbed it at 9 €. A surprisingly good price at a rather nice discount of 60 % (which ends on the 11th.)

    I also grabbed it. I was really surprised by the $9.99 price.

    This game really intrigues me, but I am still pissed off with AGEOD after Pride Of Nations and its AI taking six minutes to process a turn.

    Same here. I hoped they'd release AJE together with all the expansions and standalones but alas. At least the price is decent and they already said in their forums that the standalones will also be released on steam.

    Well, they might not have released AJE together with all the stand-alone expansions but it seems they are slowly releasing them as DLC on steam. If you dig AJE and want more, currently the rather excellent Birth of Rome is 50% off.
