Hades’ Star

Hades’ Star is a unique space strategy game, where thousands of players participate in one shared universe.

STORY

The first Scout ships we sent into the newly discovered Hades Galaxy confirmed what our greediest Corporations were hoping for: A new world filled with rich star systems and rare resources. Subsequent reports of hostile environments, unstable stars, and a mysterious indigenous race were quickly dismissed. Massive Colonization missions were put in place in record time. Already, thousands of fleets have arrived to the new Galaxy and set outposts on various planets. New ones arrive daily.

As the owner of a humble fleet arriving at the outskirts of the Hades Galaxy, you will work to colonize planets, collect valuable resources, build space stations, grow your economy and solidify your presence in dangerous star systems. You will create ships to expand and protect your interests against the aggressive race guarding this galaxy. You will have the option to join your efforts with other players to form Corporations. With time, you’ll come to grow your influence in the political landscape formed by thousands of other human players.

FEATURES

• Explore your own, vast star system and face the mysterious Cerberus forces
• Colonize numerous planets and watch them grow from lifeless rocks to central hubs of activity
• Establish diplomatic relations with other players and dictate your terms for military, mining and trade cooperation
• Build combat, mining and trade ships and customize them with powerful modules
• Meet other players and complete time-limited objectives near Red Stars that are going Supernova
• Organize with other players in Corporations
• Play at your own pace: No one will unfairly steal your resources while you are offline

Idle Empires

Ever wanted to play the role of a gold-hungry, power-obsessed tyrant? This game lets you do it without being charged for war crimes!

The makers of Idle Armies and More! Gold! Now! offer our latest clicker extravaganza: Idle Empires!

Join King Norman and help turn his peaceful little oasis of a kingdom into a fear-riddled, war-hungry, gold churning, dictatorship. Transform cottages into gold mines, orphanages into textile plants and town halls into prisons. Blame the peace-loving Orcs for all of society’s problems and invade your neighbours… for their own protection, of course.

Conquer five distinct kingdoms, including the hard and militaristic Old Town in the snowy north, and the liberal, rich Capitol in the golden desert. Raise an army of gluttons, snipers and assassins to smash the King’s foes. Break the shackles off warlocks and sorcerers to unleash their magic on your rivals. Collect an entourage of henchmen and yes-men to agree with your every decision.

Funny, witty and – very occasionally – poignant dialogue explores power, corruption and popularism in a way that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Whether you’re bribing priests or building propaganda towers in the villager green, you can bet Norman and his goons will have something inappropriate to say.

Idle Empires has everything you’d expect from a clicker; tapping, heaps of upgrades, achievements, collectables, mountains of gold *catches breath* and a whole load more.

+Beautiful pixel graphics!
+Heaps of humorous dialogue!
+5 different cities to uncover, corrupt and conquer!
+Loads of buildings, villagers and items to interact with!
+Hours and hours of gameplay!
