The 4x game that the genre has been waiting for!


eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate. 4X


     I have always loved these games. Turned base strategy and the 4X genre has always occupied a special place in my heart. At the same time, I have always felt that each 4X game made in the past, even the great ones, didn’t have the ambition or the scope of what could be done. In my eyes the 4X games of the past have either been about planetary domination — taking over and conquering land on one planet — or about interstellar conquest — taking over and conquering all the star systems in the known universe. We at Malicious Games decided to take these two subgenres of the great 4X titles of the past a step further and build a game that merges planetary domination and interstellar conquest.


     Xenia’s Ark is a new 4x Sci-Fi Strategy Game that is currently under development by Malicious Games. The goal is to achieve what no other 4x game has done in the past: Combine both full planetary and space gameplay. The target platform to launch is Steam, and popular mobile platforms Android and iOS are in the scope for a later release. We do not have a release date yet, however we are aiming to finish Xenia’s Ark in 2016.
