The indie epic space adventure Transcendence just got bigger.

San Mateo, CA – November 20, 2014 – Today, Kronosaur Productions announces the release of Eternity Port, the latest official expansion for the indie epic game Transcendence.

As a mercenary with a fast ship and the skills to fly it, you earn a living running dangerous missions for any sovereign who will hire you. But now, a digital hyperintelligence threatens the entirety of Human Space. Only by joining forces with the reclusive cyber-citizens of Eternity Port can you hope to contain Luminous.

Indie epic Transcendence is a single-player, real-time game of space combat and exploration, set in a vast galaxy teeming with clashing empires, expansionist AIs, fearsome xenophobes, and mysterious hyperintelligences.

Game developer George Moromisato states, “Eternity Port shows you parts of the Transcendence Universe that you’ve never seen before: the crowded stations of Sol, the asteroid realm of Kibo, and the multiple suns of the Centauri system.”

Eternity Port includes these new features:

Play as a CDM mercenary:

In this new adventure you play a CDM mercenary: a pilot hired by the virtual denizens of Eternity Port. Paired with an onboard AI, you ultimately gain powers in both the physical and virtual worlds. Hack into enemy ships to disable them, or just blast them with nukes. The choice is yours.

Three new player ship classes:

  • Choose the UAS Hercules if you want a freighter built for combat. With six armor segments and eight multipurpose device slots, this hulk will keep you safe through the most dangerous territories.
  • If have the skills to fly it, the Raijin-class gunship will dogfight with the best of them. Light, fast, and deadly: this is space supremacy at its best.
  • Of course, sometimes it pays to stay flexible. The Avery Astronautics Spartan is a multirole gunship that can handle any situation. You can upgrade it with heavy weapons or outfit it for freighter duty—whatever the mission demands.

New systems:

  • For the first time, you explore the area of the galaxy near our sun, Sol. Visit the metropolis of the Corporate Hierarchy in the Centauri system or the massive UAS Shipyards at Kibo. Then, visit the planets and asteroids of Sol, torn in competition among the Four Powers of Earth.

New music:

  • Eternity Port includes brand-new, original music from composer and long-time collaborator Michael Tangent. Like the game itself, the Eternity Port score builds on and expands the existing Transcendence experience.

About Transcendence

Transcendence is a single-player, PC-based, role-playing game of space-combat and exploration.

The space-operatic theme and realtime combat were inspired by Star Control II, while other game mechanics in Transcendence were inspired by Nethack. Most of the star systems in the game are procedurally generated and part of the appeal of the game is adapting to the circumstances created by the random-number generator. Some items are unknown to the player, and their effects on the ship, good or ill, are only discovered after using them. In addition, the game encourages (but does not require) playing with permadeath.

Transcendence has a passionate community of players, mostly drawn to the game's sophisticated and powerful modding system. Anyone can create an extension for the game by editing basic XML files. More advanced modders may use TLisp, a Lisp-derived scripting language, to create more complex and varied extensions. There are hundreds of extensions available on the user-run site, Xelerus.
