Back to News Listing Pandora: First Contact - Return of the Messari

Posted: Tuesday, May 27, 2014 by Bart Schouten

Type: News

The temperature is scorching hot, the atmosphere is now heavy and stifling and a weird purple color has invaded the skies. There is no doubt, they are returning home and they have no peaceful intentions! This Friday, Pandora: First Contact, a sci-fi 4X praised by the press will receive a major expansion called Return of the Messari.

Return of the Messari features a brand new alien faction that will play a main role in the later stage of the game. This ancient civilization that disappeared from the Pandora planet ages ago, comes back to its birthplace to recover its property. Therefore not only the players will have to fight their way to survive on the hostile Pandora’s environment but also deal with another aggressive enemy who comes with powerful units like gigantic mechs and motherships. The Messari will target the stronger factions as a priority which will probably confuse the issue and change the balance of power on Pandora. As a result the players will have to take into account this new gameplay element to take advantage from this fearsome alien invasion.

Today we are delighted to announce that the expansion will be available on May 30! 

Players can also pre-order the Pandora on Steam at a discounted price. We are also pleased to announce that we are going to offer a free Steam key to anyone who has a copy of the game, wherever they bought it from, once the game is available on this digital platform!

Get more information on Pandora: First Contact from the official product page.

Aggressors Testers Diary - Modding

Friday, June 15, 2018

As a young player I was always browsing game files trying to find a way to change them. It was partially curiosity and partially a wish to modify the rules to my own liking, because no matter how great a game is, there is always something you want to tweak or adjust.

The option of modding was part of the game design from the very beginning as I wanted to give the players the opportunity to create the Aggressors realm with me in an easy and user-friendly way. Over time, the idea was brought even further – I decided to create a framework for strategy games of different worlds and historical eras.
