To each his own. I'm not talking about unit visuals - though it would be trivial for experienced artists to create simplistic 3D models sharing a skeletal mesh that would look ten times better and have actual animations.
They don't have to create 3000 individual meshes - that would be extremely unwise.
I'm talking about a decent looking map - which you will find in even the cheapest indie strategy games around. Animating a few clouds and making a proper UI with tooltips and so on.
Again, we're talking about a trivial effort that would cost very, very little.
But I know their mantra and their insistence on looking like shit. Apparently, they don't want to make a very small effort in order to appeal to a larger audience.
That's cool - and I don't mind. It's not like there's a shortage of cool strategy games for me to play that actually look like someone cared.
