While not meaning to cudgel the postmortem equine, I thought it might be instructive to the creator of a certain game that is definitely *not* Dog Fight to read how other game developers handle the situation when their new game is based off an earlier game. I stumbled on this in a recent BGG Contest.
I thought the following paragraph was particularly classy:
Evolution is North Star Games’ first strategy game. Dominic Crapuchettes, designer of Wits & Wagers, has redesigned Evolution, based on the Russian game Evolution: The Origin of Species, with new traits and new mechanics. Evolution features artwork from world-renowned nature artist Catherine Hamilton and John Ariosa, artist of Mice and Mystics and Summoner Wars.
