Children of the Galaxy is a traditional 4X turn-based strategy with hexagonal maps and turn-based combat with tactical elements. A procedurally generated galaxy gives players never ending possibilities with multiple victory conditions. Gameplay is dynamically based on the size of the galaxy, number of stars, planets, number of opponents and research. Classic turn-based combat is improved with tactical and RPG elements. You can build defensively or amass an aggressive army of starships to dominate your enemies. The choice is yours.


  • Unique Races - Each race has unique bonuses and different AI
  • Turn-Based Combat with tactical elements - We have 7 unique combat classes
  • Procedurally Generated Galaxy - Each game has different number of planets and quantity of rare resources
  • Planet Colonization and Customization - There are 7 planet types to colonize. You can customize planet with constructions.
  • Research Technology Tree - Huge tech tree gives player many options how to play the game
  • Modding support - You can change galaxy configuration, AI, races, missions, ships and planet constructions

The February Update


Hello everyone and welcome to the February update. This update is about new features, mods and the AI.

User Interface
We added new features based on the feedback from closed alpha players. There is a new larger version of the UI for those with bigger (or smaller) screens. Our UI framework is scalable so there is no problem to have more sizes in the future.

The Czech localization is done and ready for the release. Other languages will follow during the Early Access. There is a new list of scanned planets, which can help you with colonization. There was a lot of small changes in the design and fixed bugs.

Modding support is getting ready for the release. You can change configuration files and create your custom content. You will be able to create a race, starships, missions, AI etc. There are 3 example mods in the workshop to help you. More info in our Modding guide.

The AI is getting smarter (scary huh). Every race can be customized in every detail like management, combat, trade, diplomacy or research. The February update made everyone bit more aggressive in an expansion and smarter in a colonization and target planning. Diplomacy AI was changed a bit so strong players have more enemies and weaker are smarter on declaring war. The AI has one of the highest priorities right now. It must be fun, yet challenging.

If you want to know more, visit our public Trello or check the release notes.
