Ascendancy is a space exploration/exploitation game where you start as one of a dozen or so alien races on the cusp of intergalactic flight. Aliens range from the familiar, a rat-man with triple-forked tongue, to the outlandish, such as sentient crystals or a 16-sexed magma dweller. You start the game with a different back-story explaining why the race has turned to exploring the stars, and then you spend a few turns researching star-travel technologies and building up the infrastructure on your home planet (wouldn't this already be developed?), and then on to ship-building and space exploration. Eventually you come into contact with the other other alien races and the REAL fun begins! If you want to know more you'll have to play for yourself ;)

from dosbox, be sure to start the patched version, "antag.exe", instead of "ascend.exe" for better AI
Fun game! Can get a bit slow and repetitive in mid-late game, but still fun. Haven't reached end-game yet. The extremely bizarre playable alien races really adds to the flavor of this game. a must try!
You have to download dos box, but once you mount the game's drive and use the mounted drive, type ascend, it works like a charm. If you don't know DOS good luck! But it's worth it... I've spent several days playing this game when it first came out (1996 when I first played it) and still keep coming back for more...
