When a trailer begins with the line, “War has been part of mankind for ages”, you know it’s going to teach you important lessons about mankind’s parts. Legends of Pegasus, the Galactica-like 4X game from Novacore, has just such a trailer. It’s quite an old trailer, showing the game’s smelly, warlike humans, but there’s a new one today showing the X’or, who are an aromatic and peaceful machine race. Both are below. In all honesty, I’ve never smelled a X’or but surely they can’t be any more malodorous than the orifice-strewn bags of guts that house all the brilliance and beauty of human intellect. The game’s campaign will see the player exploring human, X’or and an as yet unannounced third culture and Alec’s preview makes it sound like it could be quite special.
Be warned, the voiceovers are so grave you might feel as if you’ve been entombed by them.
