A World Among Stars is a 4X-RTS Space-Simulator in the vein of the Civilization and Homeworld series’. Each user controls an Empire with many possible goals. The user may venture out into the unknown, become a master at manipulating the Galactic Market, or become a domineering force in the race for Imperial supremacy.
Each user can create an Empire. Each Empire has a Race, Government, Economy, Special Attributes, Avatar, and Icon. An Empire’s Race, Government, Economy, and Special Attributes, give flavor to the game as each has positive and negative effects on a Empire. An Empire’s economy may grow faster than others but, in turn, its infrastructure lags behind. There is the possibility of 5,760 different Empires in the game!
