Master of Orion 3 Backstory
9:39 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

The Master of Orion 3's web site has posted the backstory that explains the whole history of the Orion series. As we recently learned at Macworld San Francisco, Quicksilver will be developing the Mac OS version in-house and MacSoft will be publishing it, in early 2002. The backstory features all the info about this complex world, a must-read for fans of the series and those anticipating the sequel. Here is an excerpt:

The Exiles

Visitors wandering through the wormhole into Center One found returning home impossible due to incessant fluctuations in this portal. Many saw this random act of fate as their opportunity to settle down somewhere within the thriving Center One system and easily blended into its ever-growing cosmopolitan society. Others felt trapped there and eventually departed in hopes of finding their way home. Unfortunately for them, this meant they were effectively exiled to unexplored parts of space.

While the wait for this title may seem intimidating, we're sure more details will be slowly revealed as the game reaches completion.
