So as of version 2, we now have an online lobby to do multiplayer in. legoracer, Chosenlama and I tried it out yesterday, and it worked reasonably well. So today I'll again be in the lobby as often as possible so people can fight me. :)
I'm currently deciding whether to do another minor update improving multiplayer or forge ahead with a big update that'll take a month or two but deliver some major new features. What do you think?

I dont think the multiplayer will bug me that much, so I would say go and do that big update :D
I agree with legoracer here, i would also suggest you send out some press copies to youtubers, the game has enough content that it'll be valid. furthermore i suggest you tweak the AI since about 7 minutes after the game starts, the AI just sits around and does nothing
Press copies are definitely being emitted - I'll be doing another major push of that tomorrow. :) If you have any suggestions for YouTubers who could be interested, let me know.
And thanks for reporting the AI issue. I'll see if it gets stuck or something. It's possible the cities get too well-defended and timid after a time. (Earlier in development it was the opposite: a constant back and forth of invading fleets, cities swapping owners three times a minute.)
