Impact the Galaxy with Friends!

We’ve just rolled out a new feature that makes it easy to get your friends into the Galactic Impact galaxy with you, so you’ve got a built-in ally for exploration or conquest!

On your My Empire page, there is now a referral link you can share with friends, family, or random strangers on the internet. When someone signs up using your link, we’ll set them up with their own independent empire somewhere in the galaxy, and we’ll let you pre-define your Diplomacy preferences with their empire, and you’ll both have access to a special type of ship that can probe deep space and help you both map the stars in between your two Homeworlds, and link up, for trade, war, or exploration!

As an added bonus, if you’re a Galactic Impact Premium subscriber, and someone you invited to join also becomes one, we’ll spot you a free month for helping to expand the galaxy!

To get started inviting friends, just head to your Empire’s profile page, where the Bring a Friend panel will make it easy to copy your special invite link.

Looking forward to seeing you and your friends in the galaxy soon!


And we’re live! You can sign up here. Tuning and balancing and expanding game features will be an ongoing project, but the game is now fully playable, and we’ve got several empires already starting to grow. Come on in and check it out!

Small Delay

There’s a pretty long backlog of updates I need to get edited and posted out about the development process over the last six months, but dropping this short update in real time, because a lot of the copy says “releasing December 2020”, and that’s clearly in the rear-view now.

Sneak peek at the new look!

The goal was to launch the more open phase of public beta on the 17th of December, but in the weeks leading up to that, I had several great conversations with first one, then a second, incredible designers who were excited about the project and I was able to hire to take on the daunting role of cleaning up the visual garbage I’ve been subjecting early testers to and they started working through the screens, and have come up with some remarkable work, which they began implementing immediately.

With such a slick visual overhaul so close in the offing, it felt weird to arbitrarily ‘release’ with the old interface, when the new interface is so much clearer and inspiring for new players. So as soon as the new design starts rolling out to the server, I’ll be throwing the doors open for some more players!

Scary and exciting.
