Lords of the Black Sun is an epic-sized, complex, and dense turn based 4X strategy game for the PC set in space. Take the command of one race to join the struggle for supremacy in the galaxy. As the leader of your empire you are to deal with exploring the stars, colonizing new worlds, manage your empire and conquer whomever dares to oppose.
Vast Universe: There are eight major races each with their own ship designs, technologies, unique traits and unique abilities, meaning playing with each race is a different challenge and offers new ways to approach the game. In addition to the major powers, independent races and pirate clans also claim the galaxy as their residence; their existence can be an annoyance, or a blessing if you can take advantage of them.
Economic and Political Depth: War isn’t the only way to weaken your rivals. Diplomacy, intelligence and trade can be one of many powerful tools that, if used properly, can be very effective as well. Unrest might lead rebels to start a civil war, which in turn might lead to the creation of a new, independent empire that might grow to rival your own.
Plotting and Espionage: Secretly finance a war against your rivals in order to weaken them or prepare a surprise joint war along with your allies in a bid to destroy that frighteningly fast growing empire. Beware of spies and whistleblowers though; your plot might be uncovered before you put it in action and the consequences can be dire.
Much More: Rule your empire as you wish, turning it into a dystopia, a utopia or something in between, it’s up to you. The game has modding support, human-like AI that doesn’t cheat and plays by the same rules as human players, while presenting a constant challenge, and strategic turn-based combat.
