I’m in a team of people who are developing a strategy browser game aimed at the more dedicated players, or simply people who like a good storyline. It’s called AEON7 and its set in deep space, far into the future. We are game enthusiasts who enjoy a wide range of games such as Company of Heroes, Dawn of War, Shogun Total War, Starcraft, Civilization series, Call of Duty, Quake, but also Baldur’s Gate, Fallout etc. We love the whole gaming world so much that we decided that it’s time to expand from just making games for clients, and that we should start making games of our own as well.
I’m not gonna talk much about the gameplay here, just a few ways we think our game will be different: only one world - one server, complex battle mechanics, complex research system, and an unconventional trading system. Most importantly: we are dedicating a lot of time and attention to the storyline, and want to base much of the gameplay around it. Here’s the first taste of the storyline – the first three Aeons preceding the actual time game is set in: http://www.aeon7.info.
We need all the support that we can get. If you are up to it, you can use our Facebook app (apps.facebook.com/aeonseven/) to easily spread the word to those who you think might be interested. There is also gonna be a Kickstarter project upped in a few weeks so I’m gonna post about that too.
The game is in its alpha stage. Closed beta is going to be here soon and we’ll need help with the balancing and detecting code bugs. If anyone is interested in being one of the beta testers during the closed or open beta: please mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Beta application” and your name (speaking English is a perquisite I guess, as we can't afford translators at this point ).
Thank you all for reading!
PS I'm a part of the two-man-team who are doing the story. We'd appreciate some feedback.

We've made a Facebook page that you can follow to get all the newest AEON7 updates, see concept art and screenshots from the game and offer some feedback.
The link is: https://www.facebook.com/aeonsevenhub
Here is a preview of the kind of stuff you will be able to see on the AEON7 fanpage:
Republican Science Lab - here the players will do their research, which unlocks new technologies. Technologies will be developed in different buildings, called Tech Labs.
Light Fighter - the backbone of any fleet, and a great escort unit for trade ships. Players will be able to fit them with different armor, weapon types, electrical equipment and change their skins.
Republican Ground Shipyard - Colossal in size and productive as always, these buildings are able to produce Fighter and Destroyer class ships, but also some smaller transporters used to carry around Fighters, debris and cargo.
Thanks to everybody who applied for the beta, your support (and patience) is greatly appreciated. The beta should start, well, soonish.

We did an interview for a Serbian online IT portal PC Axe. It's in Serbian, but it includes a lore picture of a Prodigium, a Republican Admiral, which makes it worth opening even if you don't understand a word of it!

And here it is - the next chapter in the AEON7 universe lore!
In the fourth AEON humankind faces extinction as the parasitic disease called "Rot" rampages throughout the populated Milky Way. Here is just a snippet:
"A number of events that took place were later celebrated as great victories that lead to the destruction of The Leviathan - The Setting Sun’s Charge, Firefly’s Kiloton Sting, The Final Verdict, The Defense of Abd-Ghullad and so on. These produced a number of awarded heroes to come out of the Bloodbath, like Julius Mordaine (for whom the “Mordaine Scar” got its name), Natala Protakova, Snit “The Judge” Broome and many more. Yet the reality was that the Million Suns battle was a struggle shaped by oversights, miscommunication, and unfortunate skirmishes in which inexperienced pilots and gunfighters quickly met their gory ends. Having that in mind, it could be said that the true heroes were the countless grunts and operatives who entered battle knowing they were facing certain death."
You can find the rest of the AEON 4 story, along with the previous three AEONs, here:
