Description

This is an attempt to remake one of the most popular turn-based strategy games set in space

The main goal is to mimic the original game as close as possible including original game graphic

Based on Python and Pygame it runs on all major platforms: Windows, Linux and Mac OS X

~ Master of Orion II: Battle at Antares (MOO2) is a 4X turn-based strategy game set in space, designed by Steve Barcia and Ken Burd, and developed by Simtex, who developed its predecessor Master of Orion. The PC version of the game was published by Microprose in 1996, while the Apple Macintosh version was published a year later by MacSoft in partnership with Microprose. The PC version is still on sale as a download, and is still played online. Master of Orion II won the Origins Award for Best Fantasy or Science Fiction Computer Game of 1996, and was well received, although reviewers differed about which aspects they liked and disliked. It is still used as a yardstick in reviews of more recent space-based 4X games. source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Master_of_Orion_II

Licensing? This project DOES NOT SHIP original game data, you have to own (buy!) the original game to run this code...
