The Lacuna Expanse is a massively multiplayer online space strategy game. Think SimCity meets Masters of Orion. You can choose to be an isolationist who's sole concern is designing and building a sprawling city on a single planet, or you can be bent on utter domination and build a huge empire across the expanse. You can become a master trader or a master ship builder. You can engage in espionage, or become an explorer. The choice is up to you in The Lacuna Expanse.

The goal was to make a fun, space empire strategy game that's fun for both casual and advanced gamers. Most web games are either too shallow or too complex. The Lacuna Expanse was designed so that casual gamers enjoy building a colony or empire and power gamers can master and deploy advanced strategy and reap benefits from hundreds of (optional) advanced gameplay elements.

    Very fun game, give it a try.

  • Vet MMO Gamer

    Avoid this game, The admin team/owners questionably incentivize positive game reviews via a number of mechanics including a system which provides in-game currency for votes to external MMO review websites.

    As for gameplay – the community is monopolized by a group of vulgar, trollish players within an alliance named ‘Anarchy’. Progress is slow and stripping away fake, dead and sitted accounts this game has a very small, dwindling community.
