Maybe I should promote it as a "new" retro game

I wouldn't personally actually put it out there as a retro game (unless the gameplay specifically is setup to be reminiscent of earlier games in the genre, which it doesn't sound like it is). I think the graphics look good, and if anyone connects it to golden era of 4X PC games, that will surely be a plus for them, and for those who don't, the graphics are good for a browser game, particularly one of this scope. I would be worried that labeling it a "retro 4X game" could set up some kind of expectations of the gameplay, and I am not sure if that is a good thing or not (I am not extremely familiar with the 4X gamer community).

Oh, whoops, maybe I confused it with classic.

Or are there new classics too?

Well, maybe calling a new game "retro" really isn't right. More like "retro-style" or "retro-gameplay" and of course "retro remake". I think most people do consider a "retro game" to be a classic game, so you are probably right there.

Have not had much for questions on the game. No 4X gamers here?

I am not sure if Mahks is still with us, but if so, I would love to get an update on this game!

This game reminds me of VGA Planets. 4X is an amazing style of gameplay, just needs to be implemented into a full multiplayer environment, as single-player doesn't work.

In a way I miss those old play by email games.
