-Transcendence is a top-down space shooter with roguelike randomization set in the human-colonized area of known space. You play as a galactic pilgrim, called through your dreams to the galaxy'​s core by a mysterious god-like being known as Domina. You must make your way system by system, dealing with pirates, corporations,​ the military, and post-human ​faction ​on your way to the galactic core.+

-Transcendence was created by [[game:​george moromisato|George Moromisato]]. He continues the active development of the game today. The current game includes //[[Stars of the Pilgrim]]//,​ the first chapter of the **[[community/​official_extensions#​domina_oracus_campaign|Domina and Oracus]]** trilogy. [[Chapter two]] (name?​) ​is currently ​under development (the features added to the engine since 1.1 are partly ​in anticipation if it), and [[chapter three]] (name?​) ​is in early planning stages.+Transcendence was created by [[game:​george moromisato|George Moromisato]].

[[game:​chaptertwo|Chapter two]], The Vault of the Galaxy, ​is currently in open alpha, and [[game:​chapterthre|Chapter Three]] is in early planning stages
 + 
 +This first chapter is implemented as an [[modding/​xml/​transcendencemodule|adventure module]]; users can [[modding|create their own]] modules that work independently of the original as well as creating adventure-inspecific addons. 
 + 
 +The Transcendence [[https://​github.com/​kronosaur/​Transcendence|engine]] is open-source save for the internet interface module; the XML and lisp code that implements the story, content, and much of the functionality is freely available to be used in extensions and the source art assets are available for download under the Creative Commons license. 
 + 
 +[[http://​transcendence.kronosaur.com/​|Version 1.7]] is the current stable version. Currently, there is no beta version. Most betas are very stable and add features requested by modders (and thus, many new mods require them), but several betas in the past have corrupted savegames or had other game-breaking bugs.
