If you enjoyed Game Dev Story, but are more concerned with galactic diplomacy than meeting the deadline for your latest fantasy side-scroller "Battle Ninjas vs Dracula in Robo-Barbarian Hell", then look no further.
Kairosoft's latest addition to its 'Story' series, entitled Epic Astro Story, is an interplanetary affair designed to give you god-like control over an uncultivated planet.

Besides the usual sim-style gameplay associated with the series, Epic Astro Story lets you take a party out to investigate the planet on foot. Creature encounters will yield rewards, encouraging exploration and lending the game an RPG flavour.

Give the dangerously addictive nature of Kairosoft's previous sim titles, you can expect Epic Astro Story to consume you like a black hole swallowing light.Epic Astro Story is available now for £2.99 / $4.99 (download).
