Quest for Gaia is a 1-5 player 4X sci-fi game in which you build an alien civilization and compete with others for galactic dominance.
You have the option of playing as one of the pre-made races offered in the game (e.g. humans, insectoid or 'ethereal'), or creating your own by following the guidelines in the rulebook. Each player can perform a specific number of actions per turn in order to gain resources or attack other players. Whoever reaches 22 points in the end, wins.
In the solo mode, you play against automata cards (this is the only information provided so far).
The Kickstarter campaign will run for 29 days.
