OverviewOverview

This is a turn based strategy game with a large strategic map that lead into multiple turn based battles. You build your empire with one of six unique factions, progress through each faction’s missions using your wits, military strength and diplomacy, exploring planetary ruins and encountering other survivors as you unravel the history of a shattered civilization. Fight, build, negotiate and technologically advance your way to utopia.

Like Civilisation it’s a game that requires the player to plan ahead and consider diplomatic as well as military options. You also have to manage your resources to create new units. You also need to develop your society and technology. Although it is complex, because it’s turn based you can take your time in planning and battle.
