Stupendous intergalactic news as developer Digital Reality announces a new Imperium Galactica is in the works, and it'll be powered by their Stargazer engine that generates "unique planets" in real-time.

The studio warns the game is "still very much in its early stages," but that it's set in an online universe. They talk of a long-term development with "playable phases" to be rolled out eventually.

While it doesn't sound like the Imperium Galactica of old, it's interesing to see what exactly Digital Reality has planned and what they mean exactly by taking in online.

"Imperium Galactica: Stargazer is a technological demo presenting the workings of our new Stargazer engine's capabilities of real-time generating unique planets. It is the first step on a road for us that we have been thinking about for some time now. We are currently working on a new Imperium Galactica game , which will use this engine."

"This new game is still very much in its early stages, but what we can tell you about it is, that it will be an online game set in the world of the Imperium Galactica universe. This will involve a long term development to be published in many, playable phases. We will strive to update the site and the game frequently by adding in more and more of the game we envisioned."

Accompanying the announcement of a new Imperium Galactica the studio has also released an "interactive teaser" of the Stargazer engine, which lets us try out real-time planet generation. Check out the official website to download it.

Another one of my all-time favorites :)

I can live with Imperium Galactica Online although I have some difficulty imagining what the game will be like.

A "proper" Imperium Galactica would be very welcome and also perfectly doable thanks to crowd-funding, I'm sure this legend of a series would be able to get funded.


edit:
This tech-demo requires you to create a free account before you can try it which is a bit of a bummer.

As long as we don't have another subscriber-based MMO on our hands, or for that matter F2P. There are quite enough of those being released already.
