So is this the result of Paradox's licensing the Europa Engine?

  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.

I know awhile back there was a lot of talk of licensing the engine so independent people could make games using Paradox's old 2D tools...is this the first of what one hopes can be many releases in that vein? Or is this project unrelated to that/commissioned by Pdox for other reasons?

Very much so. I bet Johan drives to work in a Mercedes-AMG... :rolleyes:
I thought Johan had a car similar to Obama's beast, immune to almost everything to prevent an assasination from angry mobs. Notably, Roman Mobs.

So who's making this game: Paradox or modders? If the later are they getting paid?
This is a team with modders that are also developers and/or players that are also developers and/or modders/players that are advisers:
MichaelM
Wreck
GeneralSnoopy
Dietmar1982
Garbon
and I!

They get paid if we buy the game.
Exactly! :)

They will get rich :eek:
And I'd prefer invest in development time for new versions instead of a brand new car... ;)
