Ascending EmpiresDecimated to the brink of extinction, the remnants of humanity have fled to a new galaxy in fear of annihilation at the hands of an unstoppable enemy. There, they uncover the ruins of four long-dead civilizations—and the race to develop new technology based on the alien relics has begun! Join the ranks of humanity and fight for your survival! Ascend to the stars and claim the galaxy as your own in Ascending Empires!

Players colonize new worlds by building colonies, cities, and research facilities; develop new technologies; and build up fleets of starships. Ascending Empires is an unique, fast-paced game that uses a dexterity-based starship movement and combat system (you ‘flick’ your spaceships, using the planets as bumpers), but still features many different strategies to be explored. It’s been getting great reviews and really looks like a lot of fun!
