Today, we’re thrilled to announce that pre-orders with instant access for Interstellar Space: Genesis are now open!
You can now grab a copy and see for yourself what we’ve been cooking for you for the past three and a half years.
By buying the game now through the humble widget here you get immediate access to the current game build and will receive all future updates including the final release. We’re currently at Pre-Alpha.
The game is not yet on Steam but we definitely plan to be on Steam in the near future, at which point we should be able to get Steam keys for all the people who wish it and pre-order now.
We commit to have a DRM-free version always available to our customers, now, in all future updates and after we release.
The game is for Windows (64-bit) only at the moment, but we plan to have Mac and Linux versions for the release or some time after that.
Now the disclaimer. The game is already playable but is a Pre-Alpha and not finished yet. There are still some missing and placeholder graphics, music and sound effects, and features that have not yet been implemented. We expect that there will be changes made to the game design and a continuing refinement of overall balance. So, expect some incompleteness and rough edges still.
Anyone who wants to write a preview or do a youtube video, please go for it! Everyone is free, and encouraged, to stream and write about ISG from this point forward.
Why pre-orders now?
As already stated in the pre-orders announcement, the reason to open pre-orders with instant access now is twofold:
We have reached a stage in the project where we think the game, albeit incomplete, is already in an acceptable shape to be played and enjoyed by the public, especially by the hardcore 4X and strategy gaming community. As a community-driven project, we expect to collect a lot more feedback from everyone who pre-order, still in a relatively early stage of development, so that we can improve the current design and be able to provide a great game at release for everybody. We have forums set up so that everyone can discuss the game here.
The other main reason to open pre-orders now is to secure additional funds to buy cutscenes and better graphics, music and sound effects for the game, so that we can upgrade the production values considerably and be able to deliver a great experience for everyone at release (which should happen somewhere in Q4 2018, if all goes according to plan).
More information on the game, including the features list, screenshots and system requirements can be found on the Interstellar Space: Genesis official website.

Interstellar Space: Genesis (formely Project Space Sector) is a spiritual successor to Master of Orion 2, the turn-based space 4X strategy game from the 90’s that we love so much. This will be a faithful successor, that is true in spirit to the series. We believe that by sticking to its fundamentals we will please the fans who want to feel the atmosphere and that “feeling” of Master of Orion 2, but also want to experience something new and fresh, with all the complexity and depth of a big and complex 4X game. You can join the discussions here. Pre-Orders with instant access are now open!
