What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“While Star Dynasties is nearly complete, we want to make it the best game it can be. We ran two beta tests in 2020 that gave us invaluable player feedback and changed the direction of the game for the better. As we come to our final stretch, we want to harness that power again and finish shaping the game with community feedback. Tell us what you like and don’t like!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We currently expect to stay in Early Access for approximately half a year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Part of the plan is to shape the full version based on player feedback, so it's hard to say exactly how it will differ. There are some areas in particular where we know the community will help us focus the direction of the game, such as balancing the overall experience and improving usability, but we also expect some suggestions to take us by surprise.

We do plan to add three more significant features to the game. The first of these is a modding tool to allow players to add their own story events and chains to the game. The other two features (also driven by player feedback from beta testing) will extend the core systems of the game, and will be announced shortly in our roadmap.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All the features listed in the "About this Game" section are already present in the Early Access version, although they need further balancing. The build is stable and provides a complete game to play through.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, the game will be priced higher once we leave Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We use our Discord server and the Steam forums as our primary ways to talk to our community, with a dedicated channel on Discord for suggesting new features and modifications. The game also has an in-built feedback mechanism for those who do not wish to use Discord or Steam. We will continue the process used in the beta tests, where suggestions were discussed on Discord, with the most valuable ones implemented as time permits.”

Reviews

“Star Dynasties has its own ideas about how to marry strategy and roleplaying, and it's shaping up to be a bit more than Crusader Kings in space.”
PC Gamer

“Star Dynasties understands that even during war, a good space opera cares more about political intrigue and less about who has bigger ships.”
Vice

“The description of “Crusader Kings in space” is partly appropriate, but at the same time it feels like a disservice. While the initial concept may be similar, Star Dynasties brings along plenty of changes, updates and new ideas that it plays differently.”

About This Game

Humanity had just taken its first tentative steps in space, when the catastrophic destruction of Mother Earth plunges the galaxy into a new Dark Age. Centuries later, those few surviving colonies have stabilised into a simple feudal society, unable to comprehend or advance the technological artefacts they use to survive. Internecine fights between an aristocratic elite decide the fate of the scattered fragments of human kind.

As the leader of a faction of star systems, you must seek to ensure the survival and prosperity of your dynasty. Expand your empire, herd your unruly vassals, build political alliances, and navigate a web of agendas, political intrigue and social obligations, to emerge as the dominant power of the galaxy.

Forge your Dynasty, one generation at a time.

Your campaign will span through generations of your bloodline. Customise a faction leader and launch your quest for galactic domination. Even if you set out as a benevolent upstart duke, your great-grandchild may be cruel and vindictive. You’ll have to be ready to adapt to the strengths and weaknesses of your descendants.

Star in your own Space Opera.

A feudal society is built upon strict rules and values. It will be expected of you to defend your vassals, protect your family and respect your neighbours. Act honorably and you can seduce the court of public opinion. Ingratiate yourself with others by throwing lavish feasts and solidify your alliances through marriage. Then strike ruthlessly when you can get away with it. Depose your unruly barons, threaten and force concessions from other dukes, and blackmail other characters to get what you want. Unearth the secrets of your enemies to ruin their political standing in a galaxy where reputation is everything.

Experience a rich galaxy of emergent characters and storylines.

You’ll be kept on your toes by a procedurally generated cast of hundreds of characters, each one trying to achieve their own personal goals. As events transpire, the choices you make can have a major impact not just on you; but on your heir, your house, and the fate of your empire.
