I’ve been working on Galactic Civilizations nearly my entire adult life. I wrote the first one back in college starting back in 1992. I was/am a huge fan of Sid Meier’s Civilization and wanted a game that continued the story of mankind’s expansion into space. What happened after the spaceship took off? Since then, it has evolved massively.
This article outlines how the game has changed over the years. Let’s start out with a simple chart that outlines some of the unique (or ground breaking) features that has helped make the series so popular over the years.
