About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

About Galactic Civilizations: The Altarian Prophecy

In the late 22nd century, humanity came into contact with 5 major alien civilizations. These civilizations were called, the Drengin Empire, the Torian Confederation, the Arcean Empire, the Yor Collective and the Altarian Republic. Of these 5, the Altarians were the most curious to us. Not for their cultural traits or their technology but because they happened to look human. How was this possible?

Galactic Civilizations: The Altarian Prophecy introduces an all-new campaign called the Altarian Prophecy that takes players on a multi-game journey to solve the mystery alluded to in Galactic Civilizations. Altarian Prophecy also introduces two new alien civilizations: the Korx and the Drath. These two civilizations hold the secret to Altaria's past, but worse, they know the Altarian Prophecy that foretells the destruction of the galaxy that is connected to Altaria's past.

Galactic Civilizations Deluxe Edition will be available at retail stores on November 25th, 2004 selling for $29.99. Rated E for Everyone by ESRB.
