Space Combat and Exploration in a Vast and Dangerous Galaxy
Domina, a mysterious hyperintelligence, has summoned you.
In Transcendence you are thrust into the middle of a vast galaxy teeming with clashing empires, expansionist AIs, and fearsome xenophobes. You must navigate them all to reach the Galactic Core.
Randomly Generated Star Systems
You'll need a ship powerful enough to take you to St. Katherine's Star, through the Ungoverned Territories and the Outer Realm—all the way to the edge of Human Space.
Adapt your strategy to survive the journey through dozens of randomly generated star systems. Take advantage of scavenged weapons and devices. No two games are ever alike, so adaptation equals survival.
Ares CommunueROM Item
Over a Hundred Unique Ship Classes
Between you and your goal, pirates, warlords, and slavers prowl.
Blast your way through the swarming tactics of Anarchist battlepods; steel yourself against the EMP attack of the Dwarg masters; and pray to Domina that you can withstand the terrifying archcannon of the Phobos dreadnought. The free game includes over a hundred different kinds of enemy ships and stations, each with distinct abilities.
Deadly Weapons and Arcane Devices
As Domina's call draws you into increasingly alien territory you'll find opportunities to exploit your strange surroundings.
Loot wreckage to obtain more powerful weapons, armor, and shields, or purchase them at dozens of different friendly stations. Earn unique high-tech weapons by completing missions for the Commonwealth Fleet or by helping the Corporate Hierarchy with their research.
Robust Modding System
Transcendence can be freely modified. Create your own enemies, weapons, stations, and systems using a simple XML-based syntax. Take advantage of the sophisticated and powerful scripting system to create custom behaviors, missions, and game-mechanics. Visit the Multiverse to browse Transcendence extensions.
