Lead the I.P.E. Commanders

In Space Tales, players assume the roles of commanders within the Intergalactic Planetary Expansion (I.P.E.) as they embark on a mission to explore and conquer new planets, expanding the Human Empire. The game is characterized by its strategic warfare elements, resource management mechanics, and the utilization of advanced I.P.E. technologies to construct formidable bases and assert dominance across the vast expanse of space.

A Cosmic Odyssey with Xander

The narrative of Space Tales follows the journey of Xander, the son of a legendary I.P.E. General, as players progress through 16 main missions and optional side quests. Throughout the game, players will encounter a wide array of alien races, unlock valuable research points, and assemble new squad members while unraveling the hidden secrets of the I.P.E.

Space Tales, an RTS Reminiscent of Starcraft

With its current visuals and gameplay, Space Tales draws inspiration from the classic Starcraft series, albeit with a more vibrant and colorful aesthetic inspired by early sci-fi magazines. While the real-time strategy genre has yet to be fond of contenders, Space Tales presents itself as a potential addition to the field, and we’ll be closely following Saigon Dragon’s debut game with interest.

Back the Campaign, Find the Demo on Steam

For those eager to support the project, the Kickstarter campaign for Space Tales is set to begin on October 18, and a demo will be available on Steam.
