Star Zeal is a work in progress 4x space strategy game with a focus on a more personal take with your civilization and its characters. A mixture between a procedural, open ended RPG and a space civilization builder.

The main game has you play in the Milky Way galaxy with pre-made star clusters and systems like our own the Sol system and many procedural star clusters. You will be able to play as many different species, even minor ones, from large militaristic empires to isolated nomadic species, or even a race of pirates. The end goals of each faction created, or pre-made can be extremely variable. Sometimes a faction only wants to hide from everyone in their tiny corner of the universe.

One of the main features is the extremely large playable area, an entire galaxy! With thousands of procedurally generated and hand made star systems. You will probably never explore it all. You can start off as any available species or go with what is more familiar and start with the young Human Empire recovering from long tribal wars on Earth.

Unique features.

-Massive galaxy to play in with real life star clusters and procedurally generated as you go along.
-Deep character and species system, more focus on character interaction and development.
-Espionage, military tactics, diplomacy and exploration will be more favourable than sheer expansion.
-Very different end goals per faction(that players can set too), From isolationists of single systems, to massive galactic empires.
-Research tree is dynamic/non linear and depends on external factors.
-Alignment system, good or bad depending on actions you take.

Basic features

-Unique races, with unique ship sets, characters and other art including planetary bases.
-Real time, with adjustable time skips and pause.
-Ship design.
-Full real time 3d battles on all axis.
-3d colony.
-Trading.
-Diplomacy and influence.
-Automation when the player wants, in multiple aspects of gameplay.
