The Lacuna Expanse lets you build your own amazing empire in space. You can colonize worlds, build enormous cities, mine asteroids, and engage in espionage with the other players in this massively multiplayer game.

If you've ever played Sim City, Masters of Orion, or Civilization, then the Lacuna Expanse will seem new yet familiar to you. It is sort of a unique mix of all of those games, but set in a massively multiplayer persistent universe.

With each new planet you colonize you get to construct massive mega cities, and just as no two planets are alike, no to cities need be either. Choose from over 100 different types of buildings to build out your city.

Lacuna is one big universe, which means that all of your friends plus thousands of other people can all play together at the same time.

You can work with other people or against them. Working together allows you to trade, chat, explore the galaxy, form alliances, build massive space stations, enact laws, and more.

If you happen to be the type of player who likes a little mayhem with your empire building, fear not, we have you covered. You can attack other players using war ships, or you can get down and dirty with our unique and exciting espionage system. Infiltrate the very heart of a society and bend it to your will.

New content is added to the game weekly to keep things fresh and interesting. Plus contests are held weekly to get unique buildings!

With clients for both your iPhone (both wifi and 3G) and your web browser, you can play wherever and whenever you want.

I've been betrayed

Lord Scyrius

I spent so long playing this game... I had grown to love it so much... I'd loved every moment of it and it was one of the best games I've ever played on mobile... but then... but THEN!!! In the beginning of August... way early in the morning, just past midnight... the game, or the developers, decided to give my the middle finger. I go off for a minute... then come back to "Saben!" My non-existent Black Hole Generators on every world were "sabotaged" and completely eviscerated every single planet I owned! I felt like I'd been stabbed in the back by the game I'd loved so much and held dearly... months I had spent, little compared to the years others have dedicated to it... but it was no less betrayal. I knew the game was ending. I knew it was coming to a close soon. But that was not right. That wasn't how that should have gone. But oh no... thank you, game developers! I really love how you pulled that epic backstab on me! I hope you're haunted every night for the rest of your lives.

Great game, half playable mobile version


The game is great. Complex and multi-layered. However a lot of the menu's in game do not function well and cause the program to crash. So those portions of the game are unplayable. This would be my list of bugs:

Unable to push plans or glyphs between planets through trade ministry.

Unable to assemble glyphs at the archeology ministry.

Unable to create trades of plans or glyphs at trade ministry.

Every time a resource trade is made the game will crash.

The game crashes randomly and frequently.

The star map will jump to random points on the map. With the bookmark function not changing your view to anywhere useful.

If all of these loose ends could be tied up the mobile version would be just as good as the web version.

Great Thinker


I haven't even opened up to the greater expanse and I'm having a blast building up three planets. So far no stress, lots of planning and meticulous learning. Exactly what I like in a game. Slowly working toward getting connected in mmog component and colonizing other worlds. Very good download.
