BeyondEarth.uk was first conceptualised during a coffee break at work between myself, Sains, and my fellow webmaster Chris. We had discussed creating a new website previously and settled on creating one based on Civilization: Beyond Earth as both Chris and I share a love for the Civilization series.

We also wanted to create a site about a game which had at the time yet to be released, so we could get some of the excitement and build up prior to launch day.

Unfortunately, the launch of the site took a little longer than had been anticipated due to a holiday here, broken MySQL, my poor old VM being overloaded with spam, etc., etc. – you get it – life got in the way.

Here we are though, setting out on the 8/10/2014 with the intention of providing the largest fan based Beyond Earth website online.
