## Version 1.1 is out! ##
Version 1.1 is out! We hope you like it. Here's the change log.
We added some additional maps to this. As much as I like Knife Fight, I'm ready for more maps.
Our main goals for 1.1 were:
* A couple of new difficulty levels between beginner and normal
* Get the new probing force ability in for PHC as a counter to the Avatar (sorry S...

With Ashes of the Singularity now officially released, it’s time to think about where to take the game next.
This is going to be long and rambling so please bear with me.
Topic #1: The Reviews The game seems to have been reviewed by 3 types of reviewers so far with their scores reflecting opposing views on what a PC game in 2016 should deliver.
The Story Reviewer
The most common reviewer has been the ones who consider the campaign as the primary single player experience....
It has been a few months now since I have have been able to do the weekly GalCiv Twitch Stream, and I find myself missing the weekly GC3 progress report and Q & A. I thought I would take a page out of Brad's book and try and start doing some more regular Developer Journals. This week I’m lucky because we are going to release 1.7, and there are lots of new features to talk about, and a few questions that I can preemptively address.
1.7 for the most part is a gam...

Starburst Magazine reviews Ashes of the Singularity and gives it a 9 out of 10!
"Ashes of the Singularity mixes the best qualities of Supreme Commander and Sins of a Solar Empire, offering fast paced continual wars on an unprecedented scale. It takes the best qualities of recent RTS titans but sidesteps the easy pitfalls which could have made this all too derivative a release. If you have any investment in this genre at all, if the idea big Star Wars sca...

PCGamesN has posted their review of Ashes of the Singularity and scores it a 9 out of 10!
"This is a game which looks spectacular, sounds downright amazing, implements engaging systems and ticks all of the What Makes A Good Real-time Strategy Game boxes, however its true beauty comes from the moments I’ve experienced that you never will and vice versa. With more campaign episodes due further down the line, not to mention modding and Steam Workshop support, it seems Ashes of the Sing...
PHC Frigates To enforce the PHC charter, several prominent Post-Humans formed the “PHC Weapons consortium” in which they pooled their collective ideas into producing weaponized constructs.
The first results from this cooperative effort came in the form of what the PHC now classifies as “frigates”.
These early militarized constructs lack both the lethality and refinement of their more advanced cousins now classified as “Cruisers”.
For the first two years ...

GDC has been the backdrop ...
In no particular order:
GoGo Inflight is unreasonably slow at this stage. I’m writing this from the plane and it’s about the same speed it has been since the start which is to say, it has fallen relatively behind in usability. I’m not trying to watch a video or anything, just browsing web. Apple’s usability has declined since the death of Steve Jobs. The more I use the iPhone 6 the more convinced I am that he would never have approved this design. The off button being on t...
