Birth of the Empires "alpha 6" released. Fan made 4X game. The Alpha6 Version of BotE (internal version 0.8) has been released! Hi all. Just thought i'd let everyone know over here that the latest alpha (id say beta really) of BOTE is released. It initially was a star trek botf remake but due to worries about copywrite they switched to a non trek version but the core game remains the same only races and tech are different. Their website is located here. http://www.birth-of-the-empires.de The English forums are located at our (botf2) site. http://botf2.star-trek-games.com/viewforum.php?f=25 The game is made by SirPustekuchen and is from Germany. The game with the help of the BOTF2 community have it translated into English as well. If anyone is a fan of 4X games and remembers games like Birth of the Federation or similar games then you will probably be well into this game. Here are some screenshots from the (English) copy of the game: See http://botf2.star-trek-games.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=4050 for the English version. Edit - Someone pointed out to me about the English version. Their are two versions one is in English and one is in German. Edit 2 - It is one download for German and English version as its multilingual install, just make sure to pick English or German during install. Edit 3 - Replaced German screenshots with English version screenshots.
