[10:30 AM] Galactica Quest: A.D.
by Staff

Monkey Byte Development has released an update to the game, Galactica: anno Dominari. Version 2.1 includes playability enhancements and a host of new features. The title deals with colonization and warfare, akin to the Civilization series, and other popular titles like Alpha Centuri. According to Monkey Byte:

A fun and challenging game of galactic colonization and warfare! Use your superior technology and great fleets of starships to reunite the surviving factions of the once great human empire!

Game play in Galactica is a matter of building starships, and using those ships to colonize the galaxy, protect your territory, and defeat the other players in combat. Your level of technology is crucial. Higher levels of technology allow your ships to move faster, and give them an advantage in combat over ships with lower tech levels. Your star systems also defend themselves from attacking ships based on their level of technology.

Version 2.0.4 is a major tech-level advancement over previously released v1.x versions, offering numerous improvements including:

  • An improved multiplayer experience
  • Variable sized galaxies
  • Variable computer skill levels and advantages
  • New ship classes (defense satellites, scouts, colony ships, and battleships)
  • Ability to create fleets (ie, control many ships as a single object)
  • Added an extensive hands-on tutorial

Galactica: anno Dominari is available in electronic format for US$19.95, or on CD for US$24.95. You can find more information at the Monkey Byte Development web site.
