In the nearby future (2043) humanity came into contact with an alien civilization that was not so friendly. People therefore devote enormous efforts to scientific research, to be ready for possible extraterrestrial war. In 2119, therefore, humanity launch a stellar UNS Calypso to a remote star system Beta Caeli - to create a new human colony. You play the captain of UNS Calypso and you will have to deal with several problems. Game Alien Legacy is a combination of real-time strategy, adventure and action game. You have to worry about the new human colony, find out why the colonies have not yet been established prior to your arrival (although it should have) and you have to discover new places. You are not only on your own, you have different counselors on the bridge UNS Calypso, so take and advices from them - you gonna need them. The game has three distinctive parts: global strategy, colony management and searching planets. The latter is always the first part before colonizing a planet: Every planet is divided into sectors which can be chosen on a world map. Then the game switches to a 3D view (which can be switched to a 2D view) in which the player explores the sectors in search of different symbols - clicking on them results in certain benefits. Examples are ore and energy, the two main resources in Alien Legacy, new life forms or traces of a lost civilization which give hints about the awful events of the past. With the correct technology the player can scan both the world map and the sectors to shorten the search.
