Unending Galaxy 1.2 Released !

Unending Galaxy v1.2 has just been released !

As promised, Unending Galaxy is finally available on Steam. This version adds a nice coat of polish over the previous 1.1.5 version alongside many requested features.

The military AI is noticeably stronger. Ship to ship communications have been massively improved, the police and bounty hunters will hail you before attacking you. Police and military response against the player is more proportionate. Graphics, sounds, music and texts have been improved. Many menus got reworked (ship equipment screens in particular). And, as usual, many bug fixes and smaller improvements.

You can buy Unending Galaxy from the download page. For those who already own the game, your favorite store should get the new version shortly depending on how long it takes to upload everything. The full changelog is available below.
