I can definitely vouch that "Horizons" is nothing like what it was supposed to be, if anyone is actually interested.
Artifact Entertainment was basically hostily taken over from the inside. The people who did it apparently reasoned that they could do better than the actual creator of the game, David Allen. David Allen has gone on to start a new company called Pharoah Productions and is currently looking for funding on a new game.
And, if I might add, since the thread did mention the game "Demise", there is a group of players who were basically hired by David Allen to create the next in the series of Demise, alisas Demise 2. Needless to say, support has been very high for the group, even though they are going to be a while before the game does finally come out. Currently, a fully patched version of Demise is in the works, along with a few new bonuses possibly. Then they will work on the actual Demise 2.
For those who are interested, the link to the Pharaoh Productions forum for these game, and other questions follows.http://boards.pharaoh-productions.com/index.php
Peace out dudes....
