Apollo4X is a turn-based science-fiction business, trade, and governance simulation.Do you like Tycoon games? Are you weary of every 4X game being based on the same "labor, famer, scientist" production system? We made an alternative to that.Colonize planets, invest in their infrastructure, and make your fortune linking exported commodities on some planets with import demands of other planets in your empire. You then take your profits and re-invest into society, to win through philanthropy, political influence, or raise a private military and defend the colonies from an encroaching alien menace. Keep the citizens happy by meeting their societal needs, keeping them safe, and interplanetary commerce flowing.We strove to make every turn significant, with interesting decisions and no long idle stretches waiting on things to get built. For combat, we went out of the 4X realm and built in a tactical card game inspired in part by some of our favorite tabletop combat games. Morale, combined arms, and multiple possible tactics for each of the very unique units to choose from every turn. Four different enemy clans to battle, based on the four horsemen - death, war, pestilence and famine. Each has an entirely different set of units and tactics and requires a completely different battle plan to beat. War fights with brute force, while pestilence attacks with morale crushing horror weapons, and death gave up their bodies for machines and now are the unliving reapers. We dared to be different in a genre full of excellent but too similar titles. If different is what you need, this is it.Ten percent (up to $100,000) of the profits from the sales of the Apollo4X will be used to help save rescued dogs. It will donated to 501(c)3 non-profit organizations that rescue dogs and finds them Forever Homes. Rescue groups pull the stray or abandoned dogs and pups from high-kill shelters (typical in rural areas) where they have little chance of getting adopted. These dogs and pups are then transported to receiving rescues located in urban areas who foster and shelter them, put them up for adoption and find them Forever Homes. The owners of Digital Entertainment will vet the groups to ensure that the money donated will be put to good use."I typically fly them from high-kill shelters in GA, AL and the Florida Panhandle to central FL where they are put up for adoption. Amazing as it may seem, all the dogs you see in each shot all fit into my plane. The most I ever took was on 1 Feb 2014 where I had 25 dogs and pups." -- Mike Young, President Digi-Ent.
