I love strategic gameplay. Rather than the exciting, shoot and destroy, the primary objective is to build a nation, a thriving nation. Your ability to win is based on the amount of resources you accumulate. What is more important than fire power is infrastructure.
There is a beta game of a similar idea in development right now on a Windows platform, “Limit Theory“. The objective appears to be economic domination. This game takes place in a star system, one of my favorite game settings. You own ships that can mine rocks for materials and on some occasions, fight other ships. Like any nation, you have to protect your assets.
I own a few games that have this idea. If you are into economics, you might find this game beneficial.
