Pandora: First Contact packshot image
Pandora: First Contact is a science fiction turn-based strategy game on an epic scale. In the future, mankind has discovered a new, earth-like planet, capable of supporting life, it has been dubbed “Pandora”. This planet features a wide variety of eco-regions, from the frozen ice lands of the north, to vast deserts and lush tropical forests in the south. It is also far from desolate, hosting dangerous alien wildlife that are more than capable of wreaking havoc on the invading humans, from deadly swarms to agile predators, and there is even talk of a giant in the oceans!

Isn't Alpha Centauri on GOG.com? That version should work on Windows 7 perfectly.

Pandora is over used as a metaphor is games and other media. Its not often Pandora is used in context. imo its now just used as a quick way of saying "check out the surprise we left you" followed by a whole load of disappointment* but this seems cool lmao have you signed up to the beta?
*see borderlands 1 :D

if your gonna use game engine, might as well be the same one Civilization uses. looks nice, plays good. easily modifiable. A sound choice aslong as it plays differently. Warlock (as little as i played it) felt fresh. we can only hope this wilbethe same
