Evochron Alliance gives you the freedom to change many aspects of the game to help bring your ideas to life. Such options include the ability to import your own ship designs, textures, HUD designs, create custom systems, and more. Combined with the diverse control options and freeform gameplay, Evochron Alliance provides a feature-packed template that can be used to explore your design ideas.
