The epic journey to galactic core continues with the release of Transcendence version 1.2 and the first official expansion, Corporate Command.

"This is the first big release since I started Kronosaur Productions," said Transcendence designer George Moromisato, "Corporate Command introduces three new player ship classes, adds several new star systems, and gives the player a chance to fly missions for the Corporate Hierarchy. I can't wait for people to try it out."

Transcendence version 1.2 is a game for Microsoft Windows and can be downloaded for free at Corporate Command is a digital download available for $3 at the Kronosaur Multiverse.

About Transcendence

Transcendence is an epic space opera on an indie budget. It is a single-player, realtime game of space combat and exploration, set in a vast and living galaxy populated by clashing empires, expansionist AIs, fearsome xenophobes, and mysterious hyperintelligences.

Transcendence was inspired by NetHack and Star Control II and employs several roguelike game-mechanics, including randomly generated star systems, unidentified items, and (optionally) permadeath.

Though the mechanics of the game are simple, the rich, open-world setting provides scores of unique activities and missions, including:

  • Escorting freighter through pirate territory (or smuggling illegal items).
  • Mining asteroids for ore (or busting illegal mining operations).
  • Trading commodities to get the best price (or cracking stations open and selling the loot).
  • Fighting as a gladiator in the Battle Arena Maximus.
  • Joining the Militia to protect against the Sung Slavers.
  • Leading a squadron of gunships in the Commonwealth Fleet.
  • Testing Admiral Decker's secret weapon.
  • Studying alien technology at the edge of Human Space.


Transcendence can be modified and extended using a simple XML syntax and a LISP-based scripting language. The Transcendence community has created hundreds of mods to do everything from extending the user interface to creating entirely new adventures.

Corporate Command is built entirely as a mod.


There is a passionate and welcoming community around Transcendence; many have followed the game for years and some remember its original release almost ten years ago.

Both the Transcendence Forums and the Transcendence IRC channel are filled with friendly people willing to help out newbie or debate the merits of the IM90 blaster.
