A few weeks ago I ate a genuinely delicious sandwich – it was amazing – and soon after I took a look at Sword Of The Stars II, and that game looks in fine 4X fettle. It and that sandwich will forever be intertwined in my mind. Sword Of The Stars II is the most delicious 4X game I have ever pre-eaten. It also has the most colourful spacecraft I have ever seen. No need for drab camoflage in space: paint your ship coalescent purple and make the forcefields neon green. No one is going to care. This trailer (below there) shows off some of the fleets that will soon be at your disposal. Ranbow unicorn spacefleets! And what’s that flash of crazy space-snake thing at the end there? Spooky.
