Back of Box - DOS (German Version):
    EIN NEUES ZEITALTER HAT BEGONNEN... Es ist eine Zeit atemberaubender Entdeckungen. Aber geben Sie acht: nur das Gleichgewicht zwischen Besonnenheit und Mut führen Sie zum Erfolg!

    IHRE WELT IST IHNEN ZU KLEIN... Ascendancy ist Ihre Chance, ein Universum zu erforschen und zu beherrschen. Durch neue Forschungsmethoden und Erkenntnisse bauen Sie immer fantastischere Schiffe, mit denen Sie bislang unvorstellbare Reisen unternehmen.

    FREMDE KULTUREN TREFFEN AUFEINANDER... ...und Sie setzen entweder Ihr gesamtes diplomatisches Geschick ein, damit aus möglichen Feinden loyale Freunde werden - oder Sie nutzen Ihre beeindruckenden, futuristischen Waffensysteme und Verteidigungs-Technologien. Es ist alleine Ihre Entscheidung!

    ERGREIFEN SIE DIESE EINMALIGE CHANCE... Das Überleben einer ganzen Kultur liegt in Ihren Händen. Wählen Sie Ihre Rasse aus, legen Sie Ihre Strategie fest und fordern Sie Ihr Schicksal heraus...

Logic Factory's website:

    Ascendancy, the debut game from The Logic Factory, is a game of galactic exploration and encounter. In Ascendancy, you develop your home planet, research new technologies, build ships to traverse the stars, encounter aliens, and colonize new worlds as you expand your presence throughout the galaxy.



    You begin the game by choosing to be one out of 21 possible species. Then, choose the size of the galaxy, the number of species in the game ranging from 3 to 7, and whether you want to play in a peaceful, neutral, or hostile atmosphere.



    Play begins on your home world where you begin building structures for the purposes of increasing your research,industry and prosperity. As you build these structures you also begin doing research. Eventually your research allows you to build ships for the purpose of space travel. You can equip your ship with a variety of hi-tech gizmos including weapons, shields, engines, power generators, and special function devices. The more your research advances, the more various and powerful your selection of gizmos becomes.



    As you travel to other solar systems you will encounter alien lifeforms,some friendly, some hostile. You can conduct diplomatic relations with them, exchange knowledge, make alliances or declare war.



    You expand your empire by either colonizing unoccupied planets or invading planets belonging to your enemies. Finding a peaceful or violent solution to conflict is left up to you. There are several ways to achieve Ascendancy as you will discover on your own.
