Game Info[]

With the development of computers and computer networks the world enters an era of new possibilities and challenges. Lightning-fast technological development continues, inventing more high-tech (such as the Giant Death Robot), punctual (such as the Guided Missile) and increasingly mobile and deadly weapons, with which a player seeking a domination victory could gain the edge needed to complete his or her conquest and win the game.

However, a connected world presents unique opportunities to non-violent players as well: their Diplomats may now enhance the influence of players in the United Nations, allowing them to win the World Leader vote and achieve diplomatic victory; while The Internet allows an explosive spread of touristic influence for players pursuing cultural victory.

Finally, the space race begins for players pursuing a science victory. The ultimate struggle to conquer space offers the next frontier for competition. Mankind's future awaits in the stars...
