    Similar to Civ franchise in that it's a 4x game, but gameplay is planetary and fleet management instead of City. It was fun when I played it, although I played with a number of expansions, so not sure what the base game is like anymore.

    Here's another youtube video of a review from 5 years ago that pretty much sums up the base game (note that some of the problems have probably been patched by now):

    Re: Epic Store Free Games

    If that £10 voucher is still valid from the last promotion, there's a game or 2 on that list I might consider actually buying, depending on the discount.

    ...although one game that is still an Epic exclusive is not on that list.

    It will definitely be worth a try.
    I bought Airborne Kingdom on the last voucher offer. Sadly my laptop isn't up to the job the more I expanded, but what I did get to play was quite fun.

    This game was fun, I got the original and Lightspeed Edition (this), and I've completed Lightspeed.

    Also, RAGE 2 is next? I've wanted to play that for a while!

    Rage 2 is pretty good, I really enjoyed it. Though even though my system is well specced for it I had some weird slowdowns when driving along the roads

    Re: Epic Store Free Games

    For anyone interested. Nothing particularly special about the Twitch stream, I thought it was going to be a bit more than just a train of adverts and pre-recorded scripted nonsense.
    I couldn't be bothered to sit through it all when it became clear they were just going to talk like AI/robots.

    Maybe I will get it. Wasn't feeling it on the trailer but happy to take a recommendation.
