Other: Online Interactions Not Rated by the ESRB (PC)
This is a strategy game in which players manage a colony on distant planets. Players can manage their colonies' economic and technological development, engage in diplomacy and trade, and expand territory through military conquests. Combat is depicted from an overhead perspective, as military units (e.g., small armies of soldiers and vehicles) do battle against alien creatures on a gridded map. Battles include brief animations of gun fights; realistic gunfire and mild explosions can be heard throughout the game. The game contains references to alcohol in text (e.g., “The secret of being happy is to delight in the absurd, repress the irritating, and keep good wine close at hand” and “A glass of wine first?”). The word “bastard” also appears in the text.
