davejm posted a topic in DiscussionThis is shaping up to be something special. Grand strategy masters Paradox, are finally delving into the sci-fi space with the release of Stellaris, out May 9th. Unlike traditional Paradox grand strategy, a game in Stellaris will feature 3 distinct phases of play; covering the early > mid/late > end game scenarios. Starting off with a single homeworld in one star system; a typical campaign begins like a traditional 4X game. Explore other systems; expand your borders and colonise other worlds; gather/exploit resources; conquer other races (or not!). Mid to late game; focus shifts towards traditional Paradox grand strategy as races and territory throughout the galaxy battle for supremacy. Conquer other races, create and shatter alliances, jostle for territory. Dominant race in the galaxy? The game doesn't end there. Experience end-game scenarios that dramatically shift the balance of power. Fallen empires far superior to yours offering judgment on your dangerous AI research; visitors from another galaxy; space-time rifts.

Has anybody played this, it's a lovely little Civ-lite (note very light atm) game on the iPhone, and possibly others, don't know. There's rudimentary combat, city building, tech trees, population control, and different civs. https://goo.gl/images/0lZ29q Link: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/the-battle-of-polytopia/id1006393168?mt=8 Oh and it's free- just pay for civs beyond the first 4. And whilst it's rudimentary currently, it does have pass and play and I can see it getting even better.
