End­less Space, End­less Leg­end, Dun­geon Of The End­less and End­less Space 2 – all of Am­pli­tude’s games to date – share a set­ting. Auriga, the planet on which End­less Leg­end takes place, is pre­sented in End­less Space 2 as a unique world in the grip of an ice age that yields sci­en­tific re­wards for the fac­tion that con­trols it. Sim­i­larly, the fac­tions of the first End­less Space game make cameo ap­pear­ances dur­ing events and quests. This com­pounds the sense of an an­cient, sto­ried uni­verse that Am­pli­tude is so good at evok­ing, as well as the blend of sci­ence-fic­tion and fantasy that is spe­cific to it in the 4X genre. The in­con­sis­tent qual­ity of th­ese games at launch is a shame, be­cause they col­lec­tively form some­thing spe­cial.
