While doing some research on the latest news about space strategy games under development I came across with the FreeOrion project. FreeOrion is an open-source project which goal is to build a turn based 4x space strategy game. The entire project is community-centered were people that share the common motivation are invited to contribute to build the game in many ways, some as programmers, others as conceptual designers, others as opinion makers. As stated in the project vision the game is inspired in the Master of Orion series and it will be a turn-based strategy game built in the classic 4x model style.

When it comes to Space Games, Spaceships take the central stage. They are the backbone of any space faring civilization wordy of that name. In the future I think space strategy games should pay more attention to their spaceships design concept.

The ability to research new technologies was and always will be a central aspect of any space strategy game. Much of the fun in this type of games comes from witnessing the evolution of a society in the long run on all its different aspects.
