The Emerald Project is a space exploration, colonization, and conquest game in the spirit of well-established titles like MicroProse's Master of Orion series. The Emerald Project deviates dramatically from the usual "God game" formula, though, in ways that permit a challenge on a truly galactic scale. With 100 billion star systems, you have to focus on strategy and forget the usual micro-management.
The Emerald Project has roots dating back to 1991, two years prior to the ground-breaking release of MicroProse's Master of Orion. The game has evolved slowly over the years from a pure space exploration game into a broader space-conquest game. Unfortunately, the computer gaming market has now far outstripped the ability of any single developer to produce a compelling game, so this project will have to await funding to support a full development team.
