The Ultimate God Game Has Arrived

10,000 years of strategic time travel. The power is yours. Are you wise enough to use it? You are the master of time and space. The Microids will rule the Echelon Galaxy in the year ten thousand by destroying all other living entities. Four decimated alien civilizations and your life depend on your strategic decisions. Travel through time to alter events and battle an interstellar enemy. Your actions will change history. And save the galaxy.

From award-winning strategy game designer Ian Bird.

You shape the development of four alien civilizations - from a primitive culture to interstellar space travellers.

Travel through time in 100-year leaps in the Trans-Time Machine (the XTM).

Introduce inventions and technologies - from the wheel to laser fusion - and transport them to and from worlds.

Colonize and control 100 worlds as you communicate with alien races and attack alien cities.

Battle enemies in action-packed arcade-style space combat sequences. Visit the mysterious "fifth dimension" where you confront your own destiny.

Lavish animation, video, and 3D-rendered graphics.

Digitized speech and original music.

Reviews:

PC Entertainment, February 1996

"Try the galactic strategy game Millennia: Altered Destinies, which gives you the chance to play God with other lives as you plot the course of four alien civilizations over thousands of years."

"It isn't a simple matter of doing what seems right at the proper time. Every intervention and decision you make dramatically affects the destiny of each race and the galaxy as a whole."

"Once you scratch through Millennia's surface, you should be hooked."

PC Gamer, December 1996

"This game's premise could be the foundation of a good science fiction novel, and it's an impressively complex basis for a PC game. In Millennia, the Echelon Galaxy is in crisis; its precious balance of power has been thrown off, and a mysterious and powerful entity has harnessed you with the job of putting things right. To do that, you'll pilot a time machine, examining the histories of Echelon's four distinct races. Forget the Prime Directive; your task is to fiddle with history so that each of the alien races will survive and evolve sufficiently that they can deal with the alien threat facing them in the present. It's a fascinating departure from the explore-and-conquer theme found in most space-strategy games, and this game pulls it off nicely. If you like science fiction and strategy and you're in the market for something different, look no further."
