Type: Press Release


Earth, Year 2013 – The dawn of a new day. A day where the Sci-Fi strategy game will be reinvented. Where the frontiers of 4X will be pushed as never before. Today is the day of Pandora: First Contact!

It’s been a long journey, but thanks to the effort of developer Proxy Studios (www.proxy-studios.com) and the keen help of more than 3.000 Beta Testers, the world of Pandora today discloses its secrets.

Being hailed as the spiritual successor to Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, Pandora: First Contact creates a completely new world of its own, with alien flora and fauna, massive armies, wondrous technologies, advanced weapons and much more, all rendered in a stunning 3D.

Explore a rich world harboring a variety of eco-regions, from the frozen wastes of the poles, to the vast deserts and lush tropical forests at the equator. Live in harmony with nature or use it to further your cause. Construct farms, mines, forts, and other improvements to increase the productivity of your colonies or to fortify positions…and this is just the beginning!

Pandora allows you to customize your experience through easily moddable XML data and well-known image and audio formats, adding enormous replay value. And let’s not forget the game allows up to 6 players to play head to head, co-op or in teams to decide the fate of Pandora.

The release comes along with an exclusive collection of wallpapers, to customize your desktop!  Download it HERE.

“We are extremely happy to be releasing Pandora”, says Iain McNeil development director of Slitherine, “Proxy Studios have been a great partner and their commitment to detail and quality has ensured the game has a great future. Pandora provides an intense, immersive and engaging experience for sci-fi strategy gamers and our audience worldwide. After Panzer Corps, this is another strategy gaming milestone and we are proud to be part of it”.

Desert War is OUT

Thursday, March 22, 2018

1940. While in Europe the German war machine seems unstoppable, in the desert of North Africa the British and its Commonwealth Allies are not willing to concede an easy victory to the Axis. Italian forces - even if initially numerically superior - are not adequately trained or equipped for a prolonged war in such environment, and soon they send request for aid to avoid complete defeat. Berlin answers to the call and a blocking force led by General Erwin Rommel is organized and dispatched to the Libyan shores.

Now, the day has come. Are you ready for Desert War?


Desert War Tutorial Guide

Wednesday, March 21, 2018

Training is fondamental. Without that, even the best eqipped troops can be prey of a better prepared enemy. You must know your own troops, their potential and limits. 
As a commander, you must adapt your plan to un expected situations and quickly, because time is essential and the more you wait the more chances you are leaving to the enemy to exploit your mistakes.
This is even truer in desert warfare, where the harsh environment conditions have a direct impact on communication, movement and more.
