Along the way, you'll explore the galaxy, conduct research, diplomacy and trade, found new colonies, maneuver mighty star fleets, and fight epic battles.

Although the game is complex, and the possible strategies endless, powerful help and advisor features, help you get up to speed quickly. Unlike many games in this genre, Armada 2526 focuses on providing a game that can be finished in a reasonable time, and emphasizes battle and strategy over economic micro-management.

Lead one of 18 different alien races to become a mighty pan-galactic empire. Manage your colonies, deploy your fleets and conduct research. Plot your strategy and turn your planets into mighty bastions. Explore new star systems, where you may encounter tachyon storms, psychic plants, primitives or find abandoned alien technology. Diplomacy is of utter importance in being successful. Make pacts and alliances, make threats or ask for favours - and when the time is right, replace diplomacy by space combat and fight it out in real-time 3D.


Enjoy Armada 2526 Gold and many other great games on Desura.

Better question is why developers included Desira key if they was able to include Steam? who knows, but they had some reason to it, and as bundle purchaser you kind of have to accept it.

This isn't a Greenlight game where the developer is essentially forced to supply Steam keys due to the countless people who expect them for no reason other than they feel they deserve it. The game has been out since 2010 on Steam. If the developer/publisher did not supply Steam keys to BundleStars then it's pretty obvious that they only intended for buyers to get it on Desura.

I don't purchase songs on iTunes and then go to Amazon or Rhapsody and demand that they give me the song as well since I already paid for it once. The fact that the majority of these games are discounted 90%+ in bundles makes it even worse.

Let me disagree with you a little. Customers ask for Steam keys because they believe that with Desura or Steam key they purchased LICENSE to play game, and its doesnt matter is it Desura or Steam or something else.
I nor against not supporting this point of view, but thats how is it.
But it would be strange to force peoples to pay twice to get same game on both platform.

Hi, would it be possible for Desura users to get a Steam key?

well, you see, Desura is separate platform, so that would be strange if developer would provide here keys for Steam too. I mean, that the point to sell it on Desura if you have to include Steam key?
I know some do that, but thats all up to them.

I installed this game but I can't even launch it. When I click on "Launch", the first screen (blue screen and Iceberg interactive text) comes and then it crashes (can't reach main menu). Updated my graphic card and tried to find any solution on internet but no success. If there are any problem with the game, it should be stated clearly and there should be solutions for it. They released this game in 2009 but still some people can't launch it after 4 years and there is no patch or update for that.

Looks good, but I'd like to know what space combat is like. There have been many many space empire builder games over the years; some better than others. The Masters of Orion series was great, but I thought the lack of player involvement in combat was disappointing; encounters just sort of played out using random number generators - the recent game 'Endless Space' suffers from the same thing. If, however, it's more like the absolutely brilliant Creative Labs game 'Ascendancy', then SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.

This gives me the impression of a Total War game.... set in space obviously. Is it anything like that?
