So, I don't have a 64 bit machine, and I don't feel like getting one anytime soon.
Which contains me to 32 bit Elemenal. And because of that I feel uneasy - is it worse, dubbed down version? Is the game primarily developed to work with 64 bit machines? What are the real differences between versions?
1) It's usually the other way around: the 64bit version of games are often poorly supported, rarely work right, get less attention from the developers and have extensive problems running correctly. I am not saying this will happen at Stardock, but it's a reason I often don't spring for 64bit either. The market is small.
2) Brad Wardell has said before that if you buy the 32 version of the game from Impulse at any time you can upgrade to the 64bit version for free.
3) Since 32 bit is the target market, the game will be developed with them in mind and will work fine on their machines. You will probably notice the biggest difference comes from the operating system you are running: windows vista and windows 7 have direct X 10+ and games are often "prettier" with directx 10 or better, which windows XP doesn't have.
Hopefully that answers all your fears. : ) Plus 1 to karma? : )
