Endless Space renews 4X on PC with community involvement


10:00 AM on 05.05.2012



Endless Space appeared as a pre-order item on Steam's front page the other day, and having "space" in the title means I immediately click on it. From the looks of it, it should appear familiar enough to fans of 4X space strategy titles like Master of Orion and Galactic Civilization. The French team at Amplitude Studios has also taken an interesting approach to transparent development, allowing prospective players to track development and vote on some decisions through a system dubbed Games2Gether.

Signing up for a free account is hassle-free, and gives you 100 G2G points to use for voting on faction logos and pirate ship designs at the moment. Pre-ordering one of the two editions of the game gives you another 500 G2G points, as well as access to the current and latest builds.

The Games2Gether design discussion sub-forum offers a wealth of information on how different components will work in Endless Space, such as interstellar travel, the economy, factions, and the like. It's looking great on paper already, and graphically it looks pretty slick to boot.

No Man's Sky planning 'something different' at PlayStation Experience

I've been excited for No Man's Sky for almost a years' time now, but it has become a passive excitement as I wait patiently for it to release. This video, what with some footage I haven't seen and it generally looking a...more

I played a bunch of bizarre first-person shooters so you don't have to

You remember Superhot, don't you? It's a first-person shooter in which time progresses at a normal speed only when you move. Or how about Receiver? It had somewhat realistic gun handling that made for a rewarding experience. ...more

The Blue Flamingo is a ridiculously adorable shmup

Swedish game studio Might and Delight really knows how to make games that stand out visually. Its attractive-looking paper art style on the Shelter series is, in my mind, unmistakable. I can recognize the stud...more
