Yeah now if only Star Ruler 1 felt like a finished product, you'd be in with more of a shot.
As it stands though I don't have faith in your company, just like I don't have faith in the company who brought us the game 3079 for exactly the same reason.
Such things always smell like the sequel being nothing more than a cash grab for a failing product.
Make a decent product and you'll get some decent cash.
If your base game design hasn't changed to compete with sins of a solar empire you're not going to have a decent product as far as a space strat goes.
Those are the facts, you can ignore them; but most people would want a company they pour their heart and soul into 'not' to fail.
