Quickie: A Second Chance for Elemental?

When I got Elemental: War of Magic at release a while ago, I was pretty disappointed in the game. Disappointed enough to blog about it, in fact. Well, the technical issues have apparently (I haven’t checked it yet) been resolved now, leaving only terribly gameplay speaking against the game.

Well, Stardock just hired Fall from Heaven (an immensely popular Civilization IV mod) designer Derek Paxton as lead developer for the game. This not only gives me hopes for the game (there is some potential to make it good!) but I really quite like the idea of game companies hiring talent from the mod community. (Not that this the first time this happens, but I like it every time.)
