I pretty much am a sucker for space based games, movies, science, etc. Via Steam's sale, I stumbled across Endless Space (2012 release) plus its new DLC that just came out a few weeks ago, for ~$12. It looks like a strategy game I could get into, so after watching some "Lets Play" youtube videos, I am hopping into it.
Interesting...I've not seen this one before. I may have to look into it.
I wasn't a fan of endless space. I found it to seem too much like Armada 2625. For what it's worth.
Have you played Masters of Orion (or Moo 2), by chance? You fast-posted my edit where I mentioned I thought it sounded like that game.

I dearly love the well-made Rogue-like games (I actually still play the original Rogue from time to time). I briefly looked at the Wiki for this, but it didn't explain things very well...how does the whole "pass on to your kids at death" thing work?
It's nothing so cool as actually passing something on, but when you die (which you will over and over and over again), you will be offered the choice of three "kids". These kids will be random classes of ones you have unlocked, and will have random feats/perks/whatever you want to call them attached to them, up to two. Most of them are aesthetic, such as making the game 2d (you are flat so when you turn backwards it makes you or enemies look like a paper mario), some are bad, and some are good. Each kid will also be assigned a random spell that ranges from useless to awesome. Each time you die you can swap into new gear you have unlocked to customize your class a bit better, and also attach runes to the gear to give some added powerups. It looks cheesy, but is really super fun.
