I spent endless hours playing Master of Orion 1 in the 90s (which was of course what got me into GalCiv) so this sounds good! Free early release you can play right now.. love letter to MOO1.. infinite techs.. dynamic AI.. wormhole/starlane game or not.. super customizable UI & gameplay. Good stuff!
Sadly it looks like it probably won't get funding in time.. got pretty close too.
It did and is off to the races.
Yeah it got funded in the end so I was glad to be wrong lol!
Speaking of which I've found yet another love letter to Master of Orion except this one is more MOO2 like! Has anyone here tried Interstellar Space Genesis? If so was it good? Was it stable? Apparently the indie team behind it consists of only 2 people haha! It looks pretty awesome so am thinking about trying it out now that it's finally on sale (it's normally pretty pricey lol).
Thanks for pointing out that IS:G is on sale. Purchased and downloading now.
Yeah time was running out on the steam sale and the general response I was getting in most places I asked was either silence or 'never heard of it so I don't know if it's good' haha.. However I watched this dudes let's play series below and that sold it for me.. so I hit the button too lol!
As expected it’s graphics aren’t exactly revolutionary lol but damn is it addictive and fun to play. Last few days I've barely eaten, slept, worked.. it’s all gone to hell haha!! There's room for improvement though so I've been posting lots of feedback on the steam forum as the devs actually read your comments and respond which is a rarity these days haha!
Agreed. Reminds me of MoO2 more than any other game I've played. I kinda like the retro-graphics, and it definitely has the "just one more turn" quality. I'm 140+ turns into my first game without much clue as to what I'm doing, but I think I'm doing ok. Still have to explore combat, though. There's a crystal entity guarding a nice planet not far away ...
Yeah I played it for a few days and really enjoyed it. Didn't end up finishing my game though as I decided to wait for more patches and their planned DLC to make it an even better experience as it still felt a little rough around the edges in a few places. Heaps of potential though.
