Soldak Offers Early Look At Sci-Fi Action RPG

Expanding upon some earlier hints about the nature of Soldak Entertainment's next game title, Steven Peeler has posted a new blog post offering more details about the game. Described as "Master of Orion from a mercenary captain's point of view," the game will place players in a dynamic galaxy and give them to the chance to build their fortune and influence the balance of power between opposing races.

In each game you start in a random galaxy with several races. Each race's goal is to conquer the galaxy, the problem is the other races are in the way. This is the plot of many strategy games like Master of Orion or Civilization (well Civ is planet bound).

These races expand their territory by scouting out and colonizing suitable planets. They build up their planets with more and better buildings that enhance their economy. They go to war and attack enemy races to hurt them or take their planets. They do much of this by building fleets of starships. They also research new and better technology to build better buildings and ships.

You aren't in control of any of this, directly at least. You are a mercenary in this very dynamic galaxy. Your job is really to survive and make a good living in the meantime. You can pick the side that you feel is right and help them conquer the galaxy for its own good. You can pick the side that you think is going to win and go along for the ride. You can even try to play the races against each other and simply try to pick the winning side at the last second.
As noted in the blog the new game is at a very early stage of development and may change significantly before release. Read more at the link below.
