    Use your scientists to analyze captured alien items and then get your engineers to copy their technology so you can fight on equal terms.

Trivia

  • Personal Trivia: When I was in Maryland working for GameShark, the offices were minutes away from MicroProse’s office. My apartment was literally 2 minutes from Big Games Studios, creators of another awesome simulation game; Rise of Nations. No matter where I am, I’m surrounded by games. 🙂
  • One of the few long box games to only have one print run, with no variants.
