Looks very complicated. Hopefully there will be a good tutorial/learning system to grasp all this, right?

I do find the game itself interesting, but without aid, it may be quite hard to get into.

When you first start the game, there will be several tutorial popups showing the controls and hinting about what might be smart to do in the early game stages. The popups can of course be disabled with a single click for more experienced players.

The early game is also intentionally slowed down a bit, leaving you without the ability to travel to other planets until you have researched a few pieces of technology. This way you can focus on learning the basics of the interface as well as research, defense and fleet management before you have to mount your great offensive. During that first phase the AI is also leashed a bit, only attacking with smaller, manageable fleets. (Explained in-game by the aliens having very inexperienced commanders, who have to learn a bit before becoming good)

On the other hand, this is an old school game in more ways than one and it is expected that you probably won't be able to win on your first playthrough. That part will take a bit of experience.

Doesnt look too complicated to me, granted i have played basicly every 4x game since the 90s.

Looks good and reminds me of some brilliant made older games. First thing i though was VGA Planets.

By the way. I hope you put some nice ship art into the game because id like to see more than just triangles fighting :)
