'Interstellar Space: Genesis' Natural Law Expansion Announced - Screens & Trailer

Interstellar Space: Genesis is a turn-based space 4X strategy game where you play as the Emperor of a space-faring civilization.

Interstellar Space: Genesis takes classic turn-based space 4X strategy mechanics, adds in a few twists of its own, and tosses them in with several brand-new mechanics to create a truly unique entry into the genre. The game’s classic 4X gameplay – featuring modern quality of life features – effectively eliminates micromanagement as well.

At its core, Interstellar Space: Genesis is a turn-based space 4X strategy game in which you attempt to build a thriving galactic empire. Discover mysteries among the stars, colonize procedurally generated worlds, and engage enemies in tactical turn-based combat on your journey to becoming Ruler of the Galaxy!

Interstellar Space: Genesis is also notable for its soundtrack – composed by Grant Kirkhope (GoldenEye 007, Civilization: Beyond Earth) and Neon Dolphin’s Ryan McQuinn.

You are among the latest, and perhaps the last, of the challengers to undertake this great journey into the stars. While the universe may be ancient, you and your rivals are still young. As you compete with others for control of the galaxy, participants far older and more powerful than you watch from a distance – their true intentions covered in shadows. It’s time for you to prove that your Empire deserves to rule this galaxy, once and for all. You may prove worthy after all, but worthy of what? It’s up to you.

For far too long, the desires of the galaxy lay ignored, neglected by its so-called most intelligent and advanced species. Little did they know that while the galaxy's demands may be delayed, they will not be so easily subdued. There is a natural order, an ordained path it longs to take, and there are laws far greater than their own that must be fully obeyed. Against near impossible odds, two newcomers arise, alleged champions for their cause, both of whom ready and willing to right that which they feel has gone wrong.

This expansion features 2 new races, each fully equipped with unique new capabilities which are also usable by custom races. It also includes 9 new fully animated ruler options, 4 new music tracks, and 4 new leaders!

The Palacean Assembly (New Race and Empire)

Nature gives, but also demands. Their home a paradise among the stars, the Palacean Assembly will not stop until they've replicated this perfection across the entire galaxy.

As a symbiotic utopia of intelligent flora and fauna, all within their society have a voice and a vote. Though they hold no ill-will, any who prevent their expansion will be eliminated with impunity.

Whether it's restructuring their colonies at a moment's notice, drawing additional power from the stars, or unleashing their pent up energy to eradicate nearby threats, these environmentalists are well equipped to fulfill nature's demands.

The Cerixx Sentinels (New Race and Empire)

The verdict is in, and the empires of the galaxy have been judged guilty of countless offenses by the justices of the Cerixx Sentinels. Crime must have a price, and it's time to ensure it gets paid.

Short, stocky, and covered with fur, they may look puny, but you're sure to start seeing eye to eye with them as they approach you with their technologically advanced mechs.

Whether it's catching spies within their midst, locking down enemy fleets, or launching unrelenting strike craft down upon their enemies, they're ready to enforce law and order and deliver their final judgment.

New Rulers

9 additional unique and fully animated rulers are ready to join your game and lead the game's default races or your own custom ones.
