Game Description:The original OS/2 version of Galactic Civilizations attracted a cult following in the mid-1990s. Master of Orion fans should take note: this turn-based game of galactic conquest is being updated for Windows by developer Stardock Entertainment. The player is placed at the lead of human civilization at the dawn of the 23rd century. Humanity must vie with five other civilizations for control of the galaxy via colonization, trade and conquest. You can achieve dominance through economic power, military might, technological prowess, even political maneuverings. You'll be presented with decisions that have not only tactical but ethical ramifications, both of which will have an effect on the game. Stardock promises involved campaigns that will continue to develop even after many turns have passed.
