Default Timothy Zahn's Parallax

September 14th, 2013, 18:06
Timothy Zahn is a veteran science fiction writer, with, among others, a Hugo Award winning novella and no less than ten Star Wars novels under his belt. A kickstarter is underway to produce a turn-based, galactic strategy game based upon Zahn's stable of aliens. It is described thus:

"Explore, Expand, Exploit and Exterminate your way across a galaxy of Timothy Zahn's favorite aliens… and some of yours"

"Parallax will be a turn-based strategy game in keeping with the classic 4X genre (explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate). The player, as the leader of a fledgling interstellar civilization, will direct just about every aspect of their civilization’s development, including galactic exploration, expansion of the empire, exploitation of resources and technologies, and extermination of any competitors that refuse to join their empire."

Zahn is helping to develop the game. The funding goal is $500,000.
