Strategy games are generally more thought-provoking affairs than your average platformer or shooter, but they're still usually packed with plenty of on-screen action to hold players' interest.

King of Dragon Pass began as a PC game in 1999 and followed the trials of a barbarian clan as it expanded into untamed lands.Read More

We had been hearing about the development of Stars for some time before that, so its appearance was not entirely surprising. However, Mountain View removed the listing and didn't mention Stars at I/O this year. Now Florian Kiersch has gotten a look at the updated version of Stars. It's clear Google is still making improvements to the service, but it's definitely not done yet.Read More
