[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Slime, grime, and redemption are the stars this week in the “Muck & Makers” Endless Space 2 free update, available now via Games2Gether.

What’s Endless Space 2? A strategic space opera that puts players at the helm of an intergalactic empire. If you’re new to the game, more information is available on Steam.


You’ve earned this muck!

Way back in January, we challenged you to explore a target of 3.5 million systems in in 4 days during the Endless Free Weekend. Well congrats, because you made it!

1) Hero – Fore Sagazh Jabble

A carefree, curious and accident-prone creature, integrated to the society of Heroes when an Academy explorer ship arrived to study their planet.

3) Quest – Munchie Madness

The coolest, tastiest treat across the galaxy is a new fast food, Haroshuarm. The trend has taken settled planets by storm, but unfortunately, the incredible leap in take-out consumption has created vast quantities of garbage, that you will need to handle…
