Don't Get Arcean: Gal Civ 3 Alpha Available March 27

I feel like I’ve spent much of the last few weeks in space, either in Elite: Dangerous’ alpha or in re-watching Star Trek: Voyager, and I am more than ready for some strategy set among the stars.

Galactic Civilization 3 seems poised to sate my appetite. GalCiv 2 was a game that effectively let you defeat its personality-rich AI by broadcasting better television than them, and as the new GalCiv 3 video below suggests, most or all of its best features are returning.

We’ve got (extremely) early access to GalCiv 3 now and Adam is exploiting that fact, exploring its features, expanding his thoughts and exterminating doubt in preparation of delivering some impressions later in the week. In the meantime, the video provides a quick overview of the new art style (hexes!), while promising the return of cultural victories, ship design and so on.

As the video further describes, the alpha build due March 27th will lack some of those features though, including ship building and diplomacy. Hopefully those major losses don’t make the game too flat to enjoy in its current state, but I’ll leave it to Adam to find out.

For the pun thread, here is a list of Gal Civ races. Do Yor worst. It can’t be worse than my title.
