Star Dynasties (aka Crusader Kings in Space)
« on: October 16, 2020, 01:22:05 PM »
See Steam link below for demo.  (Oct 16-24)

Quote
Star Dynasties is a sci-fi strategy game set in a divided galaxy following the destruction of Earth - plunging humanity into a new Dark Age. Centuries later, the few surviving colonies have stabilized into a feudal society. The game mixes a light empire management strategy layer with a unique procedurally generated narrative of human drama and feudal politics, where your choices will define your story.

As the leader of a faction of star systems, you must ensure the survival and prosperity of your dynasty at any cost. Expand your empire, herd your unruly vassals, build political alliances, and navigate a web of agendas, political intrigue, and social obligations to emerge as the dominant power of the galaxy.

Looks like "The Sims" in space.

^ Is there a bladder meter I'm missing in the screenshots?   ;D  Or are you just commenting on the art style?

Looks interesting.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

No, just commenting. It sounds like it is all playing with people. If so, my daughter might get into it. She was breeding Sims or something back in the days of sim3. She really like setting up personalities  and turning them loose on each other and then managing the results.

Me, I hate people management. It was the WORST part of owning a business. And the second most critical.

I mean, have you played Crusader Kings?  It's basically medieval The Sims.

With more armies.
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

Yeah, strangely enough I liked CK2 better than EU4. This new game is not a Paradox product though, is it? I got the impression it was more people oriented.
