The classic 4X games that Andrew and I love always feature a technology tree that allows for many ways to advance your particular strategy. Star Traders will organize hundreds of technologies in a vast connected tree.
|A small part of the tech tree in the upcoming Star Traders 4X|
Alpha Access is $25USD and includes a pre-order for 2 digital copies of the game on PC, private alpha access, priority game support and an invitation to participate in the balancing and design before the product is released. http://www.tresebrothers.com/star-traders-4x/empire-in-exodus/
