8:29 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

In an interesting departure from the norm, Spiderweb Software is publishing a title not developed by Jeff Vogel: Galactic Core is a game of space conquest developed by Chromite Software, featuring an epic battle among six diverse races for control of the galaxy.

The turn-based game is designed to appeal to novices as well as expert players, and even offers a play-by-email option. With six full campaigns and a built-in scenario editor, this title promises a lot of gameplay for the mere $15 shareware fee. Here are the details:

Spiderweb Software and Chromite Software, the makers of Lost Souls and Ocean
Bound, announce the upcoming release of Galactic Core, a game of
exploration, strategy and carnage in the depths of space.

You play one of six unique species locked in lethal warfare. Hop from planet
to planet, colonizing the new worlds, creating new fleets, and attempting to
overwhelm the enemy. Decide what to research, how to exploit the resources
of your worlds, and what to build. Choose between huge warships and unusual
strategic vessels, like planet killers or holographic vessels.

Galactic Core comes with six campaigns, designed to provide many hours of
challenge and torment. When you have completed them, however, the game is
far from done. Use the campaign editor to make your own scenarios, and
download new ones off the net. You can have Galactic Core create a random
level for you to conquer.

You can even take the battle to your friends! Galactic Core features play by
E-mail. Meet new opponents on the Spiderweb Software message boards and
fight them from afar.

Galactic Core is an exciting and fast-moving game of exploration and
conquest, designed to be easily learned to the novice player. Don't worry
about wading through unending rules. Just get out there and seize the

Galactic Core will be available for Macintosh in Winter, 2001. Minimum
system requirements: PowerPC (150 MHz or higher recommended), MacOS version
8.0 or higher, 24MB free RAM, 18MB disk space, 640 by 480 monitor displaying
thousands of colors (800 by 600 recommended). Galactic Core will be $15.

A demo of the game is expected to be released in the next few days. Visit the Spiderweb site for more details and screen shots.
