Endless Space. Community Driven 4x space game by some French peoples. When you play, in the distance you can hear the cowes lowing out MOO. Shot out onto the internets via Steam in alpha format if you pre-order the game, and while it is definitely an ALPHA, the game and interface shows a great deal of promise for those of use that feel we have been urinated upon from a great height by games like Sword of the Stars and Galactic Civ.
Combat is tight as Seven of Nine’s uniform and will work for both single player AND multiplayer
The interface is Jeisa Chiminazzo. Extremely impressive both functionally and visually.
Ship design is easy.
BauriceMastard did a video of some play where he and I were babbling about it and of course it’s worth a listen– all fourty three minutes and twenty six seconds of it.
