Galaxy Kings: updated

This entry is part of the PBM List.

3 years on - the same universe! Come and join!

*** The game is turn based, i.e. the game server makes a turn, sends you a report, you analyze the report using an existing Report Viewer application, create your orders and send them back to the server. It reminds a chess game, but you play against many other players at the same time. The game server simulates an expanding universe with already thousands of star systems and a number of races. Some of the races are ruled by the real human players, some - by the server (AI nations). You may join as a new race (or nation). In this case you will be placed in some sector of an existing galaxy, having just one planet and some initial resources to start. Then you will try to research and occupy the nearby systems, design and build various ships, negotiate with your neighbors... You also may join as an existing race which has no owner. Your goal in the game is to dominate in your galaxy, become a Master or even an Emperor of the Galaxy. To achieve that you need to defeat your neighbors and expand colonizing more and more star systems. You need to build up a strong economy and powerful fleet. Even if you have succeeded in your goal and eliminated all the opponents in your galaxy, the game isn't over for you if you want to continue. You can explore the space, find another galaxy and invade it... The Universe is unlimited. Currently it has 3 galaxies and more than 4000 star systems. The Universe is expanded when necessary to fit new races. Every turn thousands of ships are being built, traveling in different destinations, clashing in hundreds battles and being destroyed. Every turn tens systems get colonized, or invaded or bombed out. It's always something going on... The main features: - unlimited Universe - possibility to design your own ships with different components (lasers, cannons, shield,...) - lots of automation to make your race manageable when it grows up - existing GUI to view reports and prepare orders - rich set of commands - never ends: players can join/quit any time - galaxy aristocracy - climb up to be a King - and lots more.

Currently the game is pretty old-fashioned. The existing UI looks outdated like an old galaxy game more than a decade ago. You'll have to manually write orders (like sending ships, placing production orders and so on). If you are not afraid of it - you are more than welcome to join. All this is going to change soon. The Game will gradually move from the classic PBEM to an online game (keeping the PBEM mode). The user interface is in a process of full re-design and re-development using modern technologies (Unity 5). It will no longer possible to issue server commands manually ('advanced mode' will be added for those who like it), everything will be done conveniently in the UI. There will be standalone executables for Windows/Linux, web based and mobile versions.
