GALACTIC INHERITORS is a new space 4X game from Crispon Games and published by Argonauts Interactive. The game focuses on the science fiction and strategy. Colonise solar systems and watch them grow. Explore the galaxy to find its strategic choke points. Build up your empire and your fleet and then use the power of the media to prepare your people for the inevitable war. At the same time watch your opponents, keep on an eye on their own media and watch for threats and opportunities.
• Explore the Galaxy, look for the key choke points to guard your empire and cut off your opponents avenues of expansion.
• Research technologies to gain new ships and solar system improvements.
• Improve your solar system's infrastructure to take advantage of your investment . • Build up your navy, gain experience in ship building and unlock powerful new bonuses for your ship designs.
• Use the power of the media to steer your people opinions of your neighbours, but pay attention of what their media say too.
Galactic Inheritors is a single plater only turn based 4X game. There are three difficulty settings, three map sizes to choose from, and five different races to play as with all five being active in every game you play. Each of the five races has a different bonuses but they end up playing about the same way as the game goes on. The UI is simple, it works fine but is nothing interesting to look at. There are brief descriptions of star systems but there is very little fluff or narrative in the game. The game handles the economy in a very strange way where spending too much will hurt your tech development but do little else to you. There are some interesting ideas, such as needing to create a negative attitude towards other factions before you can go to war with them but most of the game's ideas just don't seem to be executed very well. For such a cheap looking game with only single player support, little lore, and few options the price is also asking a lot compared to other 4X games that are out there.
