Looks interesting. I never played the original, is it worth picking up?
PanzersEast: Have to think to myself.... will I play the first one by the Winter Sale?  Probably not, then I should remove Dragonfall
PanzersEast: but that is thinking too logically.... and Steam Sales are about ignoring Logic

It's odd but nice.  Build your own ships, plot orders, watch battles. Restrictions on ship size and number of ships in fleet. I think there's a PC demo.

If there is a demo, I may have to check it out.  I heard they added a strategic layer to the original game (albeit still a thin one, from what I've heard), which I felt was sorely needed.
