Description
Release date: August 2013
Economic based 3x with some features never seen in 4x games. Galaxy Union places you in a densely populated galaxy as a CEO of a corporation with a mission to unite the galaxy under your rule. Colonize systems, build colonies, research stations, become rich and commission fleets that will conquer the galaxy. This is a turn based 4x game, includes a global market with fluctuating prices, real life minerals and gases. It departs from the regular notion of only having a handful of opponent players and puts you in a galaxy where dozens and sometime up to a hundred AI players are competing with you. The game is deep enough for a seasoned player and quick enough for a casual player. It features a full 3D galactic map and a 3D system view, also it's a "3x that fits into a 2MB zip file" so you can take it with you wherever you go.

For this to make it onto Steam you seriously have to add some sound, tweak the UI and add a manual even if you don't add some in-game help. At the very, very least you need to make the text label for UI buttons etc. appear as a tooltip near your mouse rather than appearing right at the bottom left of the screen.

A great simulation strategy game with a lot of depth in economy and exploration.
Let down by no tutorial and minimal help files, you are left to work most things out for yourself.

There are a handful of different AI templetes. They are pretty tough.

Are all AI-competitors diffrent? Or is it more like a random generated Galaxy evolution that sets the difficulty?
