Dominus Galaxia (Master of Orion like game)
« on: October 10, 2019, 03:11:27 AM »
I spent endless hours playing Master of Orion 1 in the 90s so this sounds good! Pretty much a love letter to MOO1.. infinite techs.. dynamic AI.. wormhole/starlane game or not.. super customizable UI & gameplay. What's even crazier is that he's released the latest build (not just a demo) of the game for free on his kickstarter. Do you like free stuff? I like free stuff! :P

Sadly it looks like it probably won't get funding in time.. got pretty close too. ​​​​​​​:(

Well 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).

I've played it. Its not bad. It has a classic Moo feel and it seems the Devs actually care about the game.
I've already made some suggestions to them.

Yeah in the end 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!!

I've really enjoyed the IS:G. It's a beautiful game with layers of complexity.

I'm really looking forward to the "modding" access the Devs have promised.
So tell me again, where are we going, and why are we in a handbasket?

Just and FYI for anyone trying this game...

Make sure to try ion cannons and boarding ships (including monsters) instead of just making space debris.

Mostly they are just fleet mascots and free outpost guards.
I have used them for defensive combat a few times... but it seemed cruel and I try to avoid that.

But yeah, I crank the space monster setting on high to retard the expansion of the AI and to provide me free guards for outposts and support ships.

On one hand I doubt the devs planned for that, on the other hand, the game allows it.

The ion cannon technique also allows for the fun Pokemon angle to special ships the game gives thru events. If the AI manages to get one, I have to capture it for my collection.

Here's a pic of a fleet full of Space Monsters, they're horribly inaccurate and slow on the attack.

New development, beta V1.2 is out and among other things:
"Space monsters not boardable now. It was an unofficial feature till now and not envisaged in the design, and while it could be fun to capture those buggers it was causing many issues as it was not intended to be supported. That said, we have big plans for space monsters going forward."
