logo for Endless Space

A turn-based strategy game based on the 4X concept set in space. You select 1 of the 8 available factions to dominate space through economic or scientific advances, military interventions or diplomacy. Instead of scenarios the game offers a sandbox approach where the parameters and victory conditions can be defined for each match. The characteristics of each faction can also be altered to suit a specific playing style.

From the starting position you can colonize star systems with different planets. Based on the population's approval taxes can be imposed but they serve as a means to gather the 4 resources: food, industry, science and dust, of which the latter is the currency in the game. A fleet can be assembled by building custom ships where each element can be defined. Space battles aren't played out as a real-time strategy. Instead, general orders can be issued along with small interventions, even though they are presented in 3D with a cinematic camera angle.

    Why the hell do enemy ships move on my turn in a turn based game?

From my first try, I can say that I can see myself wasting tons of time playing this.... Dunno, Civ V never really grew on me, but this, with space and spaceship, it's an automatic win.

    Right now I'm kind of testing a personal faction... which has a focus on sturdy ships and better than average production value... for no reason at all, really. We'll see how it goes....

    Trying this one with the free weekend. The menus are cool, the combat... is a bit weird but better than " pew pew boom " with no graphics that other 4x games have. Will think bout buying it this Xmas

    • i've sunk quite a few hours into it. would recommend it unless you are really hung up on having good space combat. designing the ships is fun but not very customizable, which i don't care about but some people are really into. but the combat is all about fleet size/makeup and then when the battle starts you just kind of sit there and see how it turns out, although you do get to play a card at the beginning of each round

    • I've been playing a few hours and I think I prefer good old Galactic Civilization II, or in rts games, Sins of a Solar Empire. The game is not that bad, but the ship personalization as u say is ... meh. And the combat system sucks ( although its better than GCII system, but thats not much to say).

      I think I'll pass on this offer and wait for a bigger discount. Perhaps I'd rather get Rebellion than this one :S

    • Good game but the combat system is strange. Ship customization is great but at the moment lazers beat everything imho. The dev team is constantly working to improve the game.
