The Last Federation is a really unique game in that it is a strategy/tactics game set inside a simulation game. Check out our first sneak preview about it, or our preview discussing simulations in the game. Also our recent podcast with Space Game Junkie with lots of other details, the description of your role as an independent agent in the solar system, details on the alien races, information about the "butterfly effect" in the game, and the final scene art for all the alien races. Oh, and the forums for the game are filled with lots of other detailed tidbits, too.
Just a brief note here, to point you to an important forum post. If you're interested in being a part of the private alpha for the game, please head over to that post, give it a read, and then follow the instructions there.
If you've already signed up for the alpha, please still go read that forum post, as we're now asking people which round of alpha testing they would like to be a part of.
Alpha is coming up in the next 1 to 2 weeks, so we're getting things like that sorted out in advance.
