Alliance of the Sacred Suns (Master of Orion like game)

Ooooh just heard about another MOO like project called Alliance of the Sacred Suns (that seems to have been doing public betas for years under the name Imperia5x). Looks like an interesting attempt at being different from regular Master of Orion like 4x space strategy games by focusing more on you the emperor.. feels kinda of like a 'Dune - Padishah Emperor simulator' managing those pesky greedy disobedient houses haha! So maybe closer to Stellaris or Crusader Kings than MOO. Planetary management looks interesting, those separated regional environments and developments remind me of MOO3. A simple thing but I also love how the planets moons just swing past the camera while you're managing the world. Haven't seen any space battle footage so I dunno how that's managed. It's kickstarter campaign is over half way through but it's not even at half funded which is a bit worrying. It's been worked on for many years and seems so far along so hopefully the project would survive a KS failure.

Ha, I figured it. Ban lifted!
haha no worries.. I still won't click on his link just to be safe.

As for the MOO2 like games I still haven't tried Dominus Galaxia yet (mainly because it's not fully released yet) but as for ISG I got quite addicted to that in the end lol. If people are interested in more info I've finally just written a belated steam review with a big list of the game's pros and cons (IMO).

Also just released some videos covering my thoughts too:
Part 1


Part 2

lol.. well I hope you enjoyed it.. you won't be able to tell me if you did as you've since been banned I see lol. Maybe I won't click on that link you posted lol!!!

Well.. time is 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 after watching that let's play series I previously posted that sold it for me and I 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!!

haha yeah it's kind of my obsession lol.. still living in the world of 90s gaming haha!

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 this one? 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).

Have been watching this dude's video series of it and am just blown away!
