Burning Suns, one of the first ever Kickstarter projects I’ve supported as a business, has finally arrived. It took a long time: the Kickstarter finished in September 2013.
Burning Suns is an intense tactical science fiction game set in an expansive universe in which you’ll be competing for supremacy through technology, diplomacy, exploitation and destruction.
Tactical 4X thematic action > Burning Suns is not a traditional 4X game. It takes the 4X actions and gives you complete tactical control. This means you’ll have to adapt and improvise on the way to victory. A strategy can only take you this far; in the meantime you’ll have to rely on your ability to analyze the situation and calculate the best possible moves ahead of you. Being able to force, trick and outmaneuver your opponents is key to success. Seize opportunities as they arise and don’t wait for the perfect moment — because it doesn’t exist! It’s about being proactive and reactive according to your chances and the risk you’re willing to take!
