Dominus Galaxia (Master of Orion like game)


Recommended Posts

I spent endless hours playing Master of Orion 1 in the 90s 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

Well it got funded in the end so I was glad to be wrong lol!
 
Speaking of which I've found yet another love letter to Master of Orion except this one is more MOO2 like! Has anyone here tried Interstellar Space Genesis? If so was it good? Was it stable? Apparently the indie team behind it consists of only 2 people haha! It looks pretty awesome so am thinking about trying it out now that it's finally on sale (it's normally pretty pricey lol).

Well.. time was running out on the steam sale and the general response I'm getting in most places I asked was either silence or 'never heard of it so I don't know if it's good' haha.. However I watched this dudes let's play series below and that sold it for me.. so I’ve hit the button lol!

As expected it’s graphics aren’t exactly revolutionary lol but damn is it addictive and fun to play. Last few days I've barely eaten, slept, worked.. it’s all gone to hell haha!! There's room for improvement though so I've been posting lots of feedback on the steam forum as the devs actually read your comments and respond which is a rarity these days haha!

Hi! I don't check back here very often lately but glad you're continuing your updates of similar games. There are many seemingly good, innovative indie games based on classics these days apparently, but finding out about them is increasingly hard with so many titles (and frankly I've no idea how one can find something at the Steam Store unless you know what you're looking for).

Hey MrFlibbe! Been a while, in fact I think it was a Doom forum the last time we ran into each other lol!

No worries mate, I'm always on the hunt for similar games to MOO. Someone recently joined the Master of Magic discord channel I run who said he's working on a project to reserve engineer all classic Simtex games which of course includes MOO. Will be interesting to see how that goes... just pulling apart one of their games is half impossible so I'm not sure how he's going to go doing it with all of them lol! But I'll post updates here if he gets anywhere...

EDIT: Oh unless you mean my similar games to Dune thread.. if so yup I'm still collecting games for that too haha. Just made a new post in there in fact. My tribute site is well overdue for an update.
