Get a sneak peek of the upcoming Space Strategy game Star Dynasties at IndieCade this week in a free demo! Star Dynasties is a sci-fi narrative game set in a regressive future of feudal politics - think Game of Thrones but across the galaxy.

Star Dynasties is nominated for a whole host of awards, including the Grand Jury Award, Jury Prix, Innovation in Experience Design, Innovation in Interaction Design and a special spotlight award category: Procedural.

Check out the official Star Dynasties digital booth, where on Monday you can find a panel talk with the developer Glen Pawley, then on Wednesday we'll be doing a Q&A live stream.

Star Dynasties is a sci-fi strategy game set in a divided galaxy following the destruction of Earth - plunging humanity into a new Dark Age. Centuries later, the few surviving colonies have stabilized into a feudal society. The game mixes a light empire management strategy layer with a unique procedurally generated narrative of human drama and feudal politics, where your choices will define your story.

As the leader of a faction of star systems, you must ensure the survival and prosperity of your dynasty at any cost. Expand your empire, herd your unruly vassals, build political alliances, and navigate a web of agendas, political intrigue, and social obligations to emerge as the dominant power of the galaxy.

Features

  • Take on the role of the head of a political family through multiple generations, and lead it to dominance over the remnants of human civilization
  • Experience an emergent narrative of personal and political drama
  • Uphold the traditions and laws of society and earn a reputation for honour, or seize power and risk turning the galaxy against you
  • Interact with hundreds of characters with realistic personalities, emotions, and relationships
  • Punish those that have wronged you, and reward your allies
