I recently celebrated my 7th year anniversary working for Stardock and began thinking about
what games and announcements have been released in that time!
This year, Stardock celebrated its 20th year and part of that celebration was the announcement
of Galactic Civilizations III! In our community, we have lots of long-time users and we also
have a steady flow of new users, especially since we released our first mobile game.
