Here's just a quick reminder that by far the most atmospheric, philosophically compelling and narratively fulfilling Civilization-esque game ever released is now available for the paltry sum of $5,99 from Good Old Games. Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri has been high on my GOG wishlist for years now, primarily because it has always been little tricky (though by no means impossible) to get the original disc-based version to work properly on XP and later Windows versions. Thus SMAC is one of those titles which benefits a lot from having been given GOG's usual compatibility treatment, and now the only thing which could conceivably scare newcomers away is the game's hideously dull art design (who'd ever want to colonize that dirt-brown piece of crap anyway?).
