Judging by the video, sounds like the Australians have made it into space. We're doomed...
Not sure this will overtake Gal Civ 2 in the 4x stakes.
I've heard it's a a bit disappointing. Closer to Flotilla than GalCiv but i'll have a look at the gamediaries.
Sort of like a drier version of Space Rangers.
Ooooh, now i'm a little bit interested as i loved Space Rangers but i also have Sins, Sword of the Stars and Infinite Space to play so i'll be keeping an eye on this for the future.
I've got relatives in NZ so i can't hold that against the devs
Haven't played it, I'm just going purely off the looks here.

Looks remarkably like Space Empires.
Sounds mighty interesting, this. Haven't played a proper 4X game since Imperium Galactica II.
There being so extremely little info on this game about worries me though; I'd rather see some more feedback on the mechanics to determine whether this is the right thing for me first :/
hiddenranbir, any chance you could throw together a quick FRAPS video of you playing it or something? Just a short 'taster' so to speak, no worries if not i know it's a big thing to ask for.
Love the drilling noises in the video. Seems the council is installing pointless traffic lights right across the universe.
EU+MOO+more, you say? What are the system requirements? I'm on a 2.0Ghz Core2 with 128Mb graphics card.
I must have been thinking of another game because that does not sound shallow at all.
I'm in your dirs looking at your eye-candy!
Damn, that looks pretty awesome. That galaxy is MAHOOOSIVE!
Glad this picked up some interest
Since I can't seem to find it anywhere other than the DEV's own store: has anyone tried that purchase option?
I'm perfectly fine with DD, for the record, but there have been a few dodgy online stores in the past (e.g. connection hiccup during transfer = loss of sale and similar nonsense) so I'd rather have a second opinion first...
I'm still not entirely convinced but it has most certainly piqued my interest
What res do you run at? That's a mahooosive screen!
Cheers, 1680x1050 is my res too but the browser UI was chopping off some of the screen but i adjusted the zoom with a plugin i use and bingo, lovely. Thanks for this, it's really tempting.
Digital River are the company that offered the Windows 7 student downloads last year. If something does go wrong like it did with my Windows 7 download their support was pretty quick to help me out. They're legit but i'd check the T&Cs for any download limits.

Can I build a Super Star Destroyer, without having to use terrible layouts.
I want something that warps gravity around it cause it is heavy from all the guns and sh1t.

This does look right up my street. Love the enourmous galaxy. Are they all interactive stars/planets or just for show?
Also, Ranbir, as Damo has suggested, how customiseable and flexible is ship design?
Am very interested in this but it's quite a hefty pricetag for a punt.
