Turn based, 4X, empire space builder, singleplayer, asymmetric, Emperor focused grand strategy.

Core features/promises:
  • You will feel like the Emperor (assassins, imperial court, granting audiences, rebels, imperial officials)
  • No micromanagement (no moving individual ships around or constructing boring farms, you deal with more important things)
  • Unique mechanics (if you are bored with other games and wanted to see something fresh, you won't be disappointed)

The premise behind the game.
You are the emperor, not a logistics officer. You don't deal with low level stuff like building farms, factories or individual ships. Instead you focus on the grander scale of things. You grant audiences, make edicts, appoint imperial officials, deal with court factions and assassins, crush rebels, decide on production quotas and priorities.

In the game there is no micromanagement, late game does not drag on forever. You can play a relatively fast paced game on a huge galaxy without late game slow downs. You own hundreds of planets, thousands of ships and all this is managed on the high level by edicts and a hierarchical fleet system. The whole premise was to make the player make only the important and interesting choices leaving everything else abstracted.

Another important feature is the asymmetric nature of the game. The AI plays by different rules, and does not try to win the game. Aliens are more like creatures living in the galaxy than computer controlled players. Sometimes they can be valuable assets worthy of protection and sometimes an obstacle to overcome. Aliens are not created equal, some are primitive beasts that shall be cleansed from the face of the galaxy, some are fellow humanoids inferior to Terrans of course but considered sentient and worthy of compassion.

In short it's a fast paced turn based space empire builder with no micromanagement, asymmetric mechanics, and focus on you as the emperor.

Games of very good quality where you play as an emperor who decides the future of mankind and other alien breeds. You have to deal with alien invasions, coups d'état and repel a transdimention race that threatens to destroy all life in your Galaxy... The gameplay is very different from the other 4X because here you are the true Emperor of mankind.

Product received for free Honory-based 4X strategy game. Countless Possibilities, dozens of Game Mechanics that have to be balanced against each other in order to have met enough victory points/. Conditions at some point and then Ascend to the "Ruler of the Universe." Cool Atmospheres and the Amount to Think. Only Downer, one should already be reasonably powerful of English, as there is a lot to experience and accordingly much to read. If you want to look at the Whole thing in Picture un Ton, you are cordially invited to me on the Channel. Especially the first Episode serves as a Tutorial a little, even if I am really not a Master in the Game. But to get a thorough way, it should be enough. Have Fun Funghi https://youtu.be/FZrgmRUQVN0

Did you want To feel like the Emperor from Andreas Eschbach's Sci-fi novel "The Hair Carpet"? Here's the Game to go to it ..! Great Mix between Crusader Kings and Imperium Galactica. When Playing most Sci-Fi 4X Games in the last two Years, the Feeling "been there – done that" mostly outweighed me. At one Game maybe bit earlier, at the other a bit later. Stellar Monarch, on the other hand, is finally a refreshing change. I save myself extensive Buckle This Time, but recommend any Sci-fi strategist buy the Game. Story and Atmosphere are great. Graphic is nicely done and the Price is not very high. Only the musical Accompaniment is a bit desolate. Here, a little more varied repair is likely To take place. Players who have no Desire for English Lyrics but should keep their Distance. Bisl what to read is already there. P.S.: Am also on the road at Steam as a Curator and I am happy about every Follower: http://store.steampowered.com/curator/2370797-7IDGaming.de/?appid=275290
