Soldak Blog: Unique Races Vie For Power
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

A new Soldak Entertainment blog post offers a discussion of the features of the alien races to be featured in its upcoming sci-fi game. Each race will explore, colonize, and conquer planets in the galaxy according to their own unique racial personalities.

Soldak's as yet untitled game is described as "Master of Orion from a mercenary captain's point of view." It 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.

At the very beginning they only know about their home planet so they must send scout ships out to find where the best planets are to colonize and to locate potential enemies. Once they find good planets they build and send a colony ship to colonize the planet. Once colonized, the planet starts generating resources for the race that controls it.

Eventually the races will run into one another and they will start to talk. Considering that they all have the same goal of taking over the entire region, diplomacy can only go so far. They can and do trade and forge alliances, but battles and wars are common.

All of the races know that war is most likely inevitable so they will build fleets of ships to protect their colonized planets. When ready they will also build fleets of ships and attack their enemies.
