Description (in English): 

"Beyond Tomorrow" is an interactive text-based science fiction game made in Twine. The player assumes control of a wealthy business empire and the goal is to lead a successful expansion into space. The story revolves around space exploration and the different choices and consequences one must face when encountering new worlds. The game includes four unique planets that each has its different expansion possibilities and conflicts. The style of play is entirely up to the player and allows for either a violent or pacifist playthrough, as well as a combination of the two.

Some of the themes explored in the game are power, imperialism, warfare, law and order, and nuclear war. The game also includes references to several science fiction movies, most notably Star Wars and Alien.

Technical notes: 

The game uses the network hypertext structure by having different routes to passages and includes loop passages to avoid a complete restart after finishing one storyline. Every warfare passage also use the 'either' function that allows the choices to have different outcomes.
