The first post — a universe is born. Welcome to the unofficial unveiling of Stellar Conquest – a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG). We expect great things from this game as it expands into the online gaming universe.
First and foremost, our goal is provide a fun multiplayer experience that is enjoyable to casual and hardcore games. Our philosophy is to provide a rich gameplay experience that offers as much depth as you are willing to explore, without requiring life sacrifices to reach the “penultimate level”. Our skill system advances your character during gameplay and also when you are away at work or school. Combat only becomes necessary as you venture into the murky depths of the unknown universe. Players who seek the solace and comfort of home can stay within the borders of their galaxy more adventurous players will seek conquest and glory abroad. Stellar Conquest encourages you to choose your style of play, and ultimately, your character’s destiny. Through the power of connected social networks your character will build many friendships along the way.
Following on the successes of other “free-to-play” games, we’ve chosen a freemium model of gameplay. Stellar Conquest is free to play and will always be free. A small subset of items available throughout the universe is offered for sale in our marketplace. We’ve worked hard to ensure that in-game purchases do not upset the balance of play or remove the “game” from the game. Our in-game purchases are optional and inexpensive, starting at twenty-five cents. Compared to existing freemium games with items sold at hundreds of dollars or more, we feel this approach is the right balance of “free” and “premium”.
As you explore our universe please feel free to leave feedback. Our discussion forums are a great place to discuss gameplay and the many wonders of the universe. For direct feedback please visit our feature voting site.
