About this project

Hero Expansion!  Exclusive to Kickstarter
Hero Expansion! Exclusive to Kickstarter

You have control over the future of your entire species.

The players are the top minds of their own alien race. The residents of your planet are relying on you to advance their scientific knowledge and dominate the universe.  To do this you must advance in firepower, propulsion, and shield technology for your fleets.  You must also advance domestic technology of sustenance and weather control, genetics, and matter manipulation.  Your knowledge advancement will come from your ability to see patterns in the available research.

Use this knowledge to destroy other players’ fleet advancements, manipulate your fleet, and prevent other players’ attacks.  Do you choose to engineer intelligence to develop faster? Will you prepare your species to evolve, invade other planets, or explore new uncharted regions?

Victory can be achieved with a combination of concentrated research, evolution advancements, and colonization.
