Endless Space is a turn-based strategy, science fiction 4X game developed by Amplitude Studios released on July 4, 2012, for Microsoft Windows and August 31, 2012 for Mac OS X. It sold over 500,000 units.
In Endless Space the player chooses one of ten unique civilizations, or can choose to create their own, to expand their interstellar empire and conquer the galaxy. To win, the player must be the first to meet the requirements for certain victory conditions, such as Economic, Diplomatic, Expansionary, and Supremacy victories.
The game plays out on a randomly generated galaxy map with room for up to eight players/AI per game. Players colonize different star systems, which in turn contain up to six planets. Star systems are connected via a series of cosmic strings which allow ships to travel rapidly between neighbouring systems. In addition, hero units can be recruited to act as system administrators or fleet admirals, which provide bonuses depending on their traits that can further be leveled up. Battles take place in a quasi-real-time environment, similar to rock-paper-scissors.
The game features full modding and multiplayer compatibility as well.
The game is set in approximately 3000AD, tens of thousands of years after the extinction of an advanced civilization known as the Endless. The major empires of the galaxy seek to control and exploit the technology of the Endless for their own agendas.
The United Empire - A totalitarian human government operating under a combination of corporate rule and feudal monarchy, bent on galactic supremacy.
The Pilgrims - A faction of human exiles and rebels from the United Empire, united in their desire for freedom and quasi-religious veneration of the Endless.
