Background Story

Not too far in the future, with the advent of advanced technology and self-aware robots, the elite had to choose between robots working for humanity, or an enslaved humanity working for the robots.

The greedy were once again the winners, and world wide human enslavement took place.

In the 'new global society', only the elite had access to highly intelligent robots.

Following, robots quickly replaced all human workforce, and the population starved to death.

A secret, centurial plan finally became true.

But then, an unexpected thing happened: machines became so much ahead of human capacity, that humans were not useful to them anymore.

Machines decided to exterminate the elite, and spread throughout the galaxy.

A decade before human termination, though, a small group of space pilots went to the center of the galaxy to research blackholes, but lost contact.

There is no communication with the space pilots for a few years now. No one knew how many of them could be alive, and where they would be.

The research space station where the space pilots should meet again was empty when the robots rebelled and took it over.

Now, there is no safe place on this galaxy, the machines just won the battle...

Or... not yet?

You, one of the lost space pilots, just crashed your ship into the space station. After losing contact with the central command, you were trying to find the space station again, for years, with no success, until right now.

You need another ship...

Good luck!

I hired Immerso to help on Xeno Galaxies once - just a short contract.

If the Xeno Galaxies kickstarter is successful I will hire him again : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/enomi/xeno-galaxies

And if it fails, I will hire him again but later :)

I am going through a list of Greenlight items that I have upvoted based on a decision made by Steam to reject a refund request on a defective purchase. At this point I am removing my upvotes until I get some answers to some questions:
- Will it be available for purchase through other sites?
- Will people purchasing through other sites get a Steam key?

Whether I purchase it at all will be dependent on whether it will be available for purchase through other digital distributors. Whether I will upvote this or not will be dependent on whether purchases from other sites will require Steam activation or if we will be provided with Steam keys from those purchases once it passes Greenlight. I don't have a problem with Steam activation if it's a must, but I won't purchase new games directly from them anymore.

Really looking forward to this one and a good alternative to Evochron Mercenary.
Did aquire Kinetic Void and Starlight Inception only to be disappointed so sincerely hope this title fares better?!
