UPDATE: 10 minute space strategy v1.0 released!


Hello everyone,
10 min space strategy is a compact, quick turn-based 4x strategy. Our goal was to make a space strategy game that is not incredibly difficult, has a simple ruleset, but still requires the player to decide strategy, fleet movement, etc. It has all the standard elements of space strategies, you have different fields to research, you can make your own race, there is spaceship combat, colonisation, etc.

We are proud to present a working demo that gives you a taste of what the final game will be. I hope you will enjoy the demo, and if you like it, press a like on facebook :)


more screenshots:

Since there is no ingame tutorial yet, I will give you a few hints on how to play the game (though we tried to design it to be really straightforward and there is a tooltip for almost everything).

In your planets you can build facilities, that create stuff, like fighters, research, etc. Fighters and bombers are created automatically in each turn, but you have to click on a button to build coloniser ships.

One thing that is maybe not really easy to gasp is that more population means more production. Population basically multiplies a building's production. So a planet with 4 population and 1 factory will create the same amount of fighters than a planet with 2 population and 2 factories (4x1=2x2). Because of this you have to carefully balance between spreading and keeping a healthy planet population.

Propulsion tech helps you to see and move farther from your colonies, and Empire tech allows you to have more colonies and fighters. Warfare tech helps you to have an edge in space combat, Industry speeds up building spaceships and Environment allows a quicker population growth on alien planets and higher population maximum on all planets.

You can control anomalies by simply stationing fighters on them.

We are interested in your opinion, especially:

- Did you encounter any bugs, especially crash bugs?
- How easy the game is, how easy it was to understand the rules?
- Was it fun? :)

Thank you for your feedback,

spend 3 hours in this after download witch doesn't occur often. that really speaks for the game. hey + for replayabillity. + for the visuals, they are pleasing to look at yet simple. + for race and map customization. + for gameplay and mechanics, really entertaining game. - for having seen everything after 10min (hence the name).

how about some more units? like capital ships, carriers warships torpedo bombers heroes etc. if you make them selectable before the game you would get a simple game like you have now and an enhanced one too.

jeez me likes this game a lot, gonna give it an 8/10

Nice game!

It take me three game to fully understand the game (I've been crush quickly in the two first)
I found the game really interressing.
Only one bug found : near the end of the game the screen turn really dark (near turn 100)

By the way, it take me an hour to win a game, not 10 minutes ^^.

A great example of a MOO1 replica, keeping things simple. Unfortunately it quickly loses its challenge.
Give it a go, you won't regret the 3-4hr investment!
