This is a fantastic game! At first I was just idly checking it once in a while to see what kinds of things it would generate, but then one civ started doing well so I started paying really close attention and trying to help it out and guide it. I ended up feeling really attached to it. Being aware of other civilizations rising, falling, and being wiped out in the background while I all but ignored them to dote on my favourite was a very interesting experience, and really strengthened my emotional connection to the civ I was focusing on. Wonderful job on this, I plan to come back to play more later.
