A new planet will be colonized!

Pandora: First Contact can now be pre-ordered on Steam

Epsom, UK – April 30, 2014.

Often presented as a spiritual successor of Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri, Pandora: First Contact had a burdensome legacy to deal with for its release few months ago. But its conquering spirit successfully captivated both 4X fans and press specialists: “ Pandora is the strategy surprise of the year” (7idgaming), “ a solid and well-polished title” (Tacticular cancer), “ I highly recommend this game to all fans of 4X games in general” (Space Sector).

Today the colony-ships are establishing the contact with an exciting new world: Steam! Developers from Proxy Studios ( www.proxy-studios.com) have prepared appropriate technologies for properly exploring this new environment: pre-order program, free update and 80 achievements have been created especially for this occasion. Surviving on the hostile surface of Pandora was already a challenge but that was a piece of cake in comparison with completing this long list of achievements!

Players can now pre-order the game on Steam at a discounted price. We are also pleased to announce that we are going to offer a free Steam key to anyone who has a copy of the game, wherever they bought it from, once the game is available on this digital platform!

Get more information on Pandora: First Contact from its official Steam product page.
