I love it!
I know absolutely nothing about strategy games, but I love this game! The learning curve is steep, but it’s a whole lot of fun.
A thinkers space empire strategy game.
If your ready to manage population and the effects of war both militarily and civilian sector, manage it, and own it; this is the game for you. I'd love to see Battleship class vessels, expensive and long construction times to adequately reflect the substantial economic stability required to construct them.
Clunky and slow, but... Dunno - thought I had something there
Seemed cool until I played for around 4 hours last night and never saw what a battle is like. Don’t think I’ll pick this one up again. Probably. I mean I do know where the baddies are now... And I do have some combat upgrades in the works...
