Dominus Galaxia (Master of Orion like game)

Post by Blake00 » Wed Oct 09, 2019 10:12 pm

I spent endless hours playing Master of Orion 1 in the 90s (which of course fueled my love of BOTF) so this sounds good! Pretty much a love letter to MOO1.. infinite techs.. dynamic AI.. wormhole/starlane game or not.. super customizable UI & gameplay. What's even crazier is that he's released the latest build (not just a demo) of the game for free on his kickstarter. Do you like free stuff? I like free stuff! :P

I'm a Kickstarter backer. I've been following the dev's progress with Dominus Galaxia for a few years now, so it's exciting to see the game finally make it to this stage. For all the crowdfunding "fatigue" that exists out there (which the developer openly acknowledges), I'm actually looking forward to this one. :)

The beta version available for download is already pretty fun to play. Definitely worth checking out!

Sadly it looks like it probably won't get funding in time.. got pretty close too. ​​​​​​​:(

It's the same guy that was making Remnants of the Precursors, right? The MoO1 clone/tribute/whatever.

As a matter of fact, Dominus Galaxia did get fully funded! A late surge in the final 36 hours of the campaign put it over the top. :D

They're actually different projects, run by different people (although I know they've sometimes "talked shop" over on the Explorminate forums).

Remants is pretty much a straight-up remake of MOO1, just with more modern visuals, UI, and improved AI. In contrast, DG is more of a spiritual sequel (albeit one that's strongly inspired/influenced by MOO1).
