    Hi everyone! Just sending out an update that the single-player AI version of the game is now functional, and games can be played to completion! At the moment, we have 27 technology upgrades, a dozen tactical actions, 17 unique planets, political agendas, and there's more on the way. We will be opening up beta tests again for those that want to test out the newest version of the game, so post here if you're interested. Otherwise, stay tuned as we will have a new build of the game available every 2 weeks. And of course, the obligatory screenshot:

    Also if you haven't gotten a build from me yet, we will be releasing a new one tomorrow with more features and bug fixes.

    As an update on what you can expect in the near future, a list of some features that have been implemented so far this week:

    · Updated UI for building units

    · Updated UI for political agendas

    · Ability to barter with planets and receive a big one-time payoff, or conquer them and receive a steady income of resources

    · Enhanced AI abilities, including moving around in battle and purchasing technology upgrades (we have 27 now!)

    · Ground unit battle to conquer planets

    · Ability to "Sustain Damage" in combat. Normally a ship gets killed in one hit, but now they can have an upgrade to continue battling with damage (including smoke and flames)

    · Games can actually be WON now, by a player achieving 20 victory points

    · And a slew of bug fixes (12 to be exact)

    Thanks! We are waiting until our new build is tested internally to release it, but it should be very soon. You'll be the first to know :)

    Hi Mark, sure thing! This is our biggest update yet so it's taking us a while to finalize the test build, but we're almost there. Basically plugging in more art assets and tweaking some user experience aspects of the game. If it's not released tomorrow, it will for sure be released Tuesday.

    I'd be interested in the beta if you're still taking on new testers.
