Horizon release version

December 26, 2015

This year-end small update has some balance changes and a few fixes thanks to your feedback. We also want to wish you happy holidays! It's been great interacting with you for the past year and we hope to continue in 2016!

- Fighters effectiveness in combat has been improved. They now begin with two attacks per round and gain a third one at higher levels.
- Starbases and planets will now get their turn to attack before most other units (their combat initiative was lowered).
- Conquered systems under assimilation or subjugation will no longer count toward 'reckless expansion' for the purposes of others demanding that you stop expanding.
- Effectiveness of the cloaking device has been improved. Cloaked ships will no longer lose "invisibility" when getting hit so long as they don't fire back or the cloaking device isn't damaged.

- The Kor'tahz missions final step will no longer cause a downgrade in relations if you are already allied with them.
- The survey system order will now allow you to cancel and set it back again on unexplored systems with only gas giants.
- Invasions with more than 2 billion troops will now calculate the correct strength for soldiers.

Horizon release version

December 05, 2015

A small update with the following changes:

* Launched missiles that no longer have a target will now expire immediately instead of waiting to run out of fuel before disappearing.

* After a won battle, ships with ground troops that retreated (on the winning side) will now be considered for the purpose of showing the Invasion Prompt option. Previously if none of the remaining ships had ground troops the prompt would not display.

“One to keep an eye on, definitely.”

“Best of all, the way Horizon handles technological progress is one of the most elegant I've seen in a grand strategy game.”
65 – IGN

“With the excellent foundation that has already been developed and the dedication that L3O is showing to their fans, it promises to be a true 4X classic in its own right.”

Over dit spel

Horizon is a turn-based space strategy game of galactic exploration and conquest in which you are in control of humanity’s destiny.

You will explore deep space, find new frontiers and discover alien artifacts hidden on long-abandoned planets. You will also learn more about the galaxy as you come into contact with ten other species, each with their own unique culture, history and schemes.

A fully interactive galaxy allows you to navigate open space between stars and planets. Patrol your borders and, when the need arises, defend your territory by engaging in ship-to-ship tactical combat. Develop new colonies and then watch them become galactic centers for trade, industry and science - and of course military bases, outposts and shipyards to build your battle ships. Push your empire to its limits and go beyond the known horizon!

Key Features

  • Advanced turn-based tactical combat which many 4X fans have been requesting for years
  • Full Tactical ship control includes managing movement, weapons and more. Board other ships, attack from planetary and orbital defenses

  • Interact with alien races of different levels, including ancient civilizations featuring their own unique storyline, schemes, ships and technology
  • An immersive galaxy storyline with open-ended missions that add another layer of gameplay over classic 4x mode which is also available

This game is the small cousin of "Endless Space" and "Galatic Civilization II" and big brother of "weird world: return to infinite space".

For the first game from this diligient Indie Studio it's not bad but it's still got tons of room for improvemnt.

They have released a lot update to fix many of the issue they had when first launch but there are just a lot things that cannot be fixxed from patch.

1. Vidoe/Graphics are quite well done. Some of the alien planet video is just simply wonderfully beautiful. And i can tell the animator of this game really enjoyed their work and made jokes in some of the videos.

2. Music is a little subpar. But for indie game it can still be tolerated. Please improve this if you can for next game.

3. Gaming interface is quite linear and it doesn't feel 3D at all. It's a universe so it should look like one.
If you turn off the grid the universe interface just look like a mess but if you leave the grid on it doens't look good at all.

4. Tech is weird for this game too which you don't really get a tech tree. You reach base on % of you send in 6 types and you can focus on 1 specific tech one it become available. IT's just too much of a random chance. You need a Major Breakthough for a tech to show up and you need another Breakthough to start finnal getting advantage of it.

5. Race balance is really bad. This game is a colonization sim so if you can live in poison/metal planet from start you gain huge expansion advantage. Since tech research is based on random breakthough. If you play a race that's not native to bad enviromental planet you will have to cross your finger and hoping terreform research pop for you.

There is a guide here on steam that shows you exactly how you break the game using these none-balanced ability and with that guide. The game become super easy but without it. if you play regular human on those high difficulty you will have a lot of trouble.

The Achievements in this game is actually really simple and straight forward. But it does take you to play many games to grind them.
2 of those main story mission that will give you a normal ending.

7.5/10 and i do recommend this game for 4X lover. I raised the score from 6.5 to 7.5 because it's indie studio's first game but please improve and make better games.

I've been struggling with how to review this game for some time. It hits all the proper 4x elements, it's stable, has a diverse selection of races... but it's just not all that fun. I have yet to ever play a game all the way through. The developer has been great (I've seen frequent meaningful updates), it does everything it's supposed to do, but in the end it makes me long for Star Trek: Birth of the Federation. The two games are very similar but Horizon is just missing that extra something that makes it special. BOTF benefited from the existing Star Trek universe, but it also really captured the feel of the races by using custom UI for each one and having a nice balance of unique traits. If you can find that game, it's great. If the developers have not played it I recommend they do. The universe in Horizon is just too stale as is. Maybe that's it.

Anyway, great game that is well worth supporting, but I can't recommend when there are other better games out there.

The game is great. Not that great as it could be. Still the tech trees, starship construction , economy system is quite simplified and makes you focus on the main thing like quests and world dominance. There are several drawback, mostly for diplomacy system and point defence in battles. There are glitches with planet bombardment and conquering worlds... but for me this game is a major setforth even compared to GalCiv3.

You get a well optimised game (big boo to GalCiv 3) with understandable techtree, simplified and intuitive economy model (again the rock to GalCiv), great tech management (in fact, this is the first time I prefered the system from MOO 3) than from GalCiv (GalCiv 2 had a decent system, but I can't say the same for GalCiv3 - many drawbacks noticed). You can create almost any race you want (that is now very restricted in GalCiv3). But the thing I fell in love with is tactical fights, quests system and ships modeling. This is just great, and only one game beets it for me - Sword of the stars 1

Do you like 4X civ games and like science fiction. If you said yes to both then this should be worth a look.

Don't expect to win on your first play through. Normal mode is very aggressive. The casual gamer will have to turn the difficulty down to learn the finer points of the game. Hardcore gamers should not have a problem with it.

The game offers a wide and varied customization of your colonies and ships. Tactically you will want to fight most battles manually one missle or laser blast at a time.
