Slowly but surely Crytek is succeeding in taking over the world.

I guess piracy must not be too bad of an issue if they got enough cash that they can buy out whole studios lol :tongue:

Keep going that way, Crytek! Take them all!! :D


Now one suggestion: Start a Crytek studio in Belgium (next to Germany!) so I can work there when I graduate from university later on! :tongue:

Dear Crytek and Black Sea Studios:
I am a fan of both your studios, and I was very glad to see this merger happen when it did so a year ago. I would like to congratulate Crytek/BSS on the release of WorldShift as well as Crysis Warhead.

However, I would like to remind Crytek Black Sea (although I'm sure you don't need it) of your heritage in regards to Knights of Honor. Although I only started hearing of it a year after its official release, Knights of Honor is a game that thoroughly impressed me, both as a fan of history and as a fan of Real Time Strategy.

Simply put, Knights of Honor is everything an RTS should be, emphasizing the 'S' in strategy.

My only real complaint would be some of the production values, namely the graphics, sound, and interface. That said, the core mechanics were spot on, and very intriguing. As of note, no other PC Strat developer has dared do what you have done, and for that you all at Crytek Black Sea deserve much praise.

I write this open letter then in eagerness to wish you well with future projects, AND to suggest you do either a sequel or spiritual successor to Knights of Honor, perhaps setting the time period during Ancient Greece or Rome, or perhaps keep the setting the medieval period.

One thing is for certain; the stunning ingenuity Crytek has in regards to its graphics engines coupled with Black Sea's solid gameplay and immaculate attention to detail would produce a truly magnificent classic that would rival any strategy game out on the market, be it Total War or Starcraft 2.

I wish Crytek/Black Sea Studios well in all their endeavors, and I sincerely hope you consider my idea.

Fondest regards,
Mac
