Embark on a thrilling journey through space with Birth of the Empires, a turn-based 4X strategy game reminiscent of classic titles such as Microprose's Master of Orion 2 and ST: Birth of the Federation! The game takes place in a vast galaxy filled with fascinating worlds, lifeforms, and anomalies, and players must choose one of six major races to control and establish superiority over a section of the universe through military or diplomatic means. Multiple victory conditions are available at the start of the game, making each playthrough a unique experience.

Set in the year 2121, after the third world war, mankind has entered a new age of technological advancement. It's a time to explore the undiscovered and make contact with civilizations beyond Earth's system. Brave men and women aboard starships are seeking new life and a new home, encountering new species and forging alliances along the way.

Players are tasked with taking command of one race during the early stages of the empire's development. The path to victory is varied, and the challenge is to balance the power dynamics within the galaxy quadrant or assert your race's dominance and create your own "order" in the galaxy.
