The universe is bigger than we think.

On the remote fringes of the universe, an alien object drifts in quietly from the Black Chasm. The "Bees" break from their centuries-old patterns, but no one pays attention. Instead, The League quarrels over the rights of Artificials, opposed to the potential of a race of benevolent Superminds. The majority however go about their usual business of buying and selling. And while you're busy finding your fortune, events with cosmic proportions unravel around you.

Third Epoch is an epic space-trader of adventure and discovery. You play the role of an enterprising "free-rigger", braving the hazards of space flight transporting goods between supply and demand, and earning a buck in the process. Interesting characters will ask for your help along the way, which inevitably leads to troubles you'll need science to solve.

Travel the stars, trade and earn, build fleets of ships, and take on missions to chart new phenomena and save planets.

Greyskull's comments:


Randomly discovered this (possible) gem. It's a space-trading/exploration game with a reputation system and a slick GUI. I haven't even gone on my first mission yet, so just download yourself no ads, haven't seen any iaps.

Anyone else?

I'm on iphone 4s
I'm on an ipad mini, 1st gen. It also crashes after character creation / loading.
Really wanted to play this game but sadly unable to.
Here's hoping there'll be support for older devices.

Currently the game is built to run natively on iPhone / iPod Touch. iPad HD version is coming soon. It's going to look and play very nicely on the iPad once it's out, methinks
If you are on an ipad with ios 7,it scales beautifully.

Hey folks - v1.0.1 update just came out on the App Store. This update focuses mainly on under-the-hood improvements. Lots to them though! Read the "What's New" description in the App Store listing for a list of the main ones.

First premium expansion comes out later this Spring with a whole new star cluster, new ship classes, and 10+ hrs of new story-arc missions!

Thanks, just learnt about this game which I'm just downloading. In the description it says "it offers IAP". What are they?
