Original large-scale scenario, closely tied with the first part of intergalactic epic helps the player influence the ongoing events and foreordain one of many endings.

Complete impunity, black market flourishing where gun and tech trade is on the move, arbitrariness and anarchy – the Galaxy has become a real dangerous place. Events in the Universe and its inhabitant’s destiny are completely up to the player’s choice and tactical decisions.

Age of Mythology added to Porting Kit!

On many request! Age of Mythology is added to Porting Kit. I don’t own the expansion of the game, so for now the main game only. Game works great! Enjoy this old gem. Oh, multiplayer works fine as well using LAN and thus should also work online using Hamachi.

The classic real time strategy game that transports players to a time when heroes did battle with monsters of legend and the gods intervened in the affairs of mortals.  Use mythological creatures like Minotaurs and Cyclopes to bolster your armies’ strength. Call upon the gods for assistance in flattening enemy towns with meteors or scatter opposing troops with lightning storms.
