Description

What if we finally reached life in other galaxies? What if alliances were forged, new life forms nurtured and innovation left unchecked? But what if, in the end, we failed to learn from our mistakes.

History

We want to explore the space simulation genre in a new way and create a game, where the player has to care over all civilzations in the galaxy. Like a galactic gardener, the player has to balance technological progress, military aggresion and resource waste so the alien species survive long enough to make contact to other cilizations ... As a setup for our game we choose the Paradox of Enrico Fermi, the question why our human species never recived an alien radio signal, even if there are millions of much older stars in the galaxy very likely to harbour sentient lifeforms. The fear that sentient life will always destroy itself as soon at it is technological capeable to do so and the implications of interstellar communication and travel that will take thousands of years is the narrative framework for our project.

Features

  • The god game genre brought to a galactic scale.
  • Civilization development from the Stone Age to the technological Singularity and beyond.
  • Hundreds of story events, which can change the society of a species; from man-made climate-change, over alien sexuality to the creating of artificial planets.
  • The simulation system will provide the player constantly with challenging choices to keep the fragile balance of the galaxy.
  • Become fate and tend your galactic garden until all civilizations unite in harmony or entropy will destroy them all ...
