Rule the stars your way.

<span class="bold">Star Ruler 2</span>, a near-infinite space 4X-RTS hybrid, is available now for Windows and Linux, DRM-free on!

<span class="bold">Star Ruler 2</span> is the sequel to 2010 supremely ambitious space 4X-RTS hybrid. It was a game that featured nearly limitless galaxies with thousands of systems, bound only by the capabilities of the PC you played it on. The massive 4X returns now better than ever. It seeks to revolutionise the genre with its fresh take on tired gameplay elements, that includes Diplomacy which ties into all of the game's mechanics, affecting the state of the universe in meaningful ways. A complex galactic economy, custom ship designs, intricate research mechanics, and full modability grant <span class="bold">Star Ruler 2</span> the potential to become the next timeless space 4X! You can find more interesting tidbits on the unique design choices in the game in the official developer diaries.

Rule the stars through force, politics, or just buy it all out. A limitless galaxy of choice in <span class="bold">Star Ruler 2</span> - available now, DRM-free on!
ZFR: Is this another one of those April Fools threads?
Uh no :P
Matruchus: I think that my wish for this game in the community wishlist can now be listed as completed.

Fixed :P
Firgof: The game does function on some XP builds, but we're not able to determine which - a recent update broke compatibility in a location that doesn't provide us much information - and we no longer have access to any debugging tools for WinXP (and Virtual Machine emulation unfortunately isn't an option there either).

Thus, we raised our system requirements a few weeks ago to Vista and later for now as we can no longer guarantee XP support. We'll be e-mailing GOG today to get them to update that on the store page accordingly.

You can join our IRC with any client, yes.

Already fixed the XP issue :)
JudasIscariot: Already fixed the XP issue :)
Firgof: Awesome. Thanks!
So I have a question about the game as I have yet to play it myself :)

How many ways can you reach the end goal of a given campaign? Can I use subterfuge and/or diplomacy or do I have to use brute force to win? Is there a race that is better suited for sabotage/spying/stealing technology? Can you steal race-specific tech and use it for yourself like in Distant Worlds?

Don't get me wrong, I am planning to give the game a good shake at home but I figured I'd ask beforehand :D
liamphoenix: My first thought on seeing this:

This better not be another one of those damn April Fools things!

Seems legit though.
It's legit :P
