Galaxy Conquest 2569 (GC2569) is a Multi-Player Internet "On-Line Only" Economic Conquest Game of epic proportions set in the year 2569. . You don't need a high-end graphics card, a super computer or 'fighter pilot reflexes' to play GC2569 as it is more a strategy based game than it is graphical.
Imagine business in 2569. No one in business actually 'goes to work' anymore, they sit down at their computer and connect to the Galactic Cybernet and conduct trade deals all from a central point. This is GC2569.
GC2569 is played in a 3D Universe composed of 'sectors' within a galaxy being 10x10x10 or 1,000 sectors. There are (at present) 100 interconnected galaxies to play in so the total play area is 100,000 sectors. In these sectors are a myriad of planets, star ports and other areas the player navigates to make 'credits' and start building his or her own empire. Your mission is to become the undisputed financial ruler of the universe. Use espionage and sabotage against your rivals! Build industries on planets to generate a sizable income.

Galaxy Conquest 2569 runs under Microsoft Windows(r) and has been tested on Windows 98SE and Windows XP. It does not require the latest graphics supercard, oodles of CPU power or fighter pilot reflexes. GC2569 is more of a strategy and thinking based game, not a super graphics first person real-time shoot-em-up.
GC2569 is fully server-based, no game data is stored on the local machine. and all variables in memory are overwritten with fresh server data before being modified and sent back to the server. This, although not foolproof, alleviates most 'cheating'. When you play GC2569 you can mostly be assured you are on even ground with most players with the same amount of online time.
The data traffic is small so you can even play it using a normal modem
6th May 2008 This game is extremely boring. The HUD is very difficult to understand. No tutorial for beginners. Takes a few days to get your account activated. I was on a business trip out of the country, when I came back, I had an email saying exactly this: Since you have no seen fit to even log in once to try the game you signed
up for (Galaxy Conquest 2569) or bother to reply to even 1 email, we must
assumed you are not interested, which is good because you ARE NOT the type
we wish on the server.
You account is terminated.
Have a nice day.
Needless to say, I was not pleased by their poor attitude and sent a nasty letter back. If you want to play a space game, that these guys have based some of their game off of (and I know because they promoted their game on this other one) go play Starport: Galactic Empires. Much better gameplay and community.
