Get your 4X strategy fix in 60 minutes per run, or less!

This is the original PICO-8 edition of a larger, upcoming PC game. You can see how the new version of the game is progressing on its Steam page (where you can also wishlist it, hint, hint). If you'd like to stay up-to-date with the development, check out the Discord server or the Twitter feed.

How to play

The best way to start is the animated quickstart guide, but here is the shortest possible version:

Drag the map around using the right mouse button or the SDFE keys. Click to drop a wormhole that will become your starting point. Then click and drag to find some planets, which you can colonize with your chosen industry. Drag from planet to planet to connect them with a slipway. Try to connect planets that make stuff with planets that need it. Buy structures by dragging them from the bottom-right corner. Research technologies from the top-left corner. Click the heart symbol to check your score.

Make the biggest, baddest, most prosperous empire possible!

add endless mode pls

amazing but endless mode would be cool

it mostly depends on luck but I love the pixel design and the business part of the game

I first played this game around 2 years ago and it's still amazing. I played it every day back then!

ngl I thought it said slip wars xD
