I can't remember how I first heard about AGEod's games, my memory's very foggy. I believe I saw Rise of Prussia first on Gamers Gate or on the Paradox website, but paid it only passing attention. Then I saw Pride of Nations featured at paradoxplaza.com, and I got really excited, thinking it looked even better than Victoria (the first one - Victoria II didn't live up to my high expectations), so I checked out AGEod's website, thought, "hey these guys look like my kinda game developers!", then promptly filed it away in my head for future reference. Then I read The Wargamer's review of AACW, which I found on Matrix Games, tried it, loved it, and bought it direct from AGEod. And now I'm a rabid fan! I plan on buying pretty much every game, as soon as my budget allows.
