Strategy August 2017
A virtual adaptation of a Polish board game of the same title. It has been developed by independent studio Grey Wizard Innovative belonging to Piotr and Ewa Zygadlo, both experienced game developers (Artifex Mundi, Grim Legends 2: Song of the Dark Swan). Galaxy of Trian is set in a science-fiction universe, in which humanity gained access to advanced technology of an alien race, Trian, and uses it to strengthen rivaling nations. Gameplay mechanics match the tabletop original. The game is a turn-based strategy played on two-dimensional board, on which the player adds triangle pieces each turn, representing planets, space stations, trade routes or nebulas. Each piece has a different score value, and the key to success is connecting them to create constructions that are worth more points. Game ends when both sides of conflict run out of pieces to place, and the winner is determined by their final score.
