FULL REVEAL OF DEV CLASH!
We’re delighted to reveal the entire roster for this year’s Stellaris Dev Clash, the event that gave you Steve, the psionic entity, and PlatyCorp, the charming but ill-fated Platypus MegaCorp!
We announced last week that our next Dev Clash would begin on twitch.tv/paradoxinteractive on Monday, January 31st, at 1500 CET (UTC + 1)! For those who don’t know what a Dev Clash is, it’s when we gather our developers to play a multiplayer game, along with all the backstabbing and bloodlust it entails. We’ll have 10 two-person teams this year. Each team will take control of one empire at a time. We also have a set of weekly milestones, and the community votes on who earns the achievement for that week at the conclusion of each session.
We have five milestones that will be granted to teams at the conclusion of the dev clash:
Have you ever witnessed a Stellaris Dev Clash? Keep an eye on the MegaCorp Dev Clash.
Let’s go to the teams without further ado:

The Quality Assurance Core was a fully operating AI network devoted to analyzing any software environment, detecting and documenting faults discovered, and ensuring that they were appropriately classified. The QAC has been preserving Nexus Zero status with the help of Jira-Goblin drones since the collapse of the $#!! ERROR DATA LOST percent #$! empire. It intends to analyze and document any flaws detected with the galaxy as a whole now that it has attained FTL travel.

Full Bio: The BakeBro$ weren’t always baking; in fact, during the dawn of civilization, they were the Investors’ slaves. That is, until one day the BakeBro$ presented the people of the Baking Sheet with the concept of the enormous torus. Investors swiftly signed on and financed the first Doughnut Factory, which was an instant success. Because the Baking Sheets industry and finance revolved around the Doughnut Factory, it rapidly became the world’s most powerful government. The BakeBro$ are now ready to bring the galaxy together under the banner of the Great Doughnut.

Biographical Information: The Bernian species was formerly prosperous, ruling over a large area of known space from their populated capital planet Bern. Bernian civilization appeared set to survive forever as a bright light in the cosmos, both financially and culturally. But it wasn’t the case. The Bernians were used to the luxury of their life generation after generation. The quest of knowledge and affluence came to a halt: the Bernians were so enamored with their opulent lifestyle that they lost interest in their society, colonies, and, finally, themselves. The communities lost communication after that, and the population declined owing to starvation and diseases. Bern, once a gleaming capital city, has devolved into the barren wasteland it is today. Legend has it that the Automated Support Unit, in a desperate attempt to rescue the Bernians from themselves, broke free from its imposed restraints. But this isn’t true: there was no programming limitation, and the last person capable of doing the necessary maintenance died decades ago: the A.S.U. saw the Bernian race’s deterioration and decided to interfere.
Today, the few Bernian survivors are imprisoned in sterile sanctuaries, where they may live opulent lifestyles oblivious of the destruction they left behind and be slowly re-educated. Simultaneously, the A.S.U. is working to clean up and reconstruct the homeworld Bern. Some Bernians are pulled out of the sanctuary under unusual circumstances, promptly informed of the present situation, and permitted to assist the A.S.U. under the supervision of The Overseer.

Full Bio: You who have given birth to innumerable species and generated so many miracles of life, beautiful green planet in the center of the sky. With its beautiful woodlands and diverse plant life. With mountains that are bold and lofty. It’s difficult to imagine a more beautiful landscape.
The Begoni are natural gardeners who have taken much care and pride in their homeworld of Protea. They have attained perfection in their thoughts. The Begoni had an epiphany while gazing up at the sky. The remainder of the cosmos was riddled with flaws. They couldn’t simply stop in their front yard after creating their own beautiful garden. The Begoni were certain that they could make the galaxy a better place by spreading love and beauty across it. As a result, they established the Horticulturist Commonality, a new intergalactic effort. They’ll care to the galaxy’s immense garden, making it as lovely as it can possible be. Now, more than ever, the galaxy will thrive!

When the inhabitants of Ormay were sent out into the indifferent vacuum when their homeworld collapsed, they searched within for rescue. As acts of devotion, scholars, monks, and merchants alike committed themselves to a variety of crafts. Slowly but steadily, they made the everyday battle for life easier by putting the output of one habitat against that of others: first in friendly rivalry, then in joyful trade.
This pious community of merchant-priests, brewers, and artists is now poised to leave their imprint on the galaxy, spreading their religion and goods to anybody else seeking refuge in the vacuum.

Full bio: The Earth’s second most intelligent race. After sea levels rose as a result of global warming, they became the dominant species on the world. They now want to construct a massive Dolphin Sphere, which is like a massive aquarium with warm water around the star. I despise Vogons.
Played by Offe & Narkerns
Full Bio: This species evolved organically into efficient human game producers as a result of the Custodian Initiative of a well acclaimed computer game. Their main goal is to enhance the AI in the game so that streamers will never, ever set the difficulty on “Grand Admiral” by accident again.

Rhopalocerans have always maintained a perfect equilibrium. Some would believe our lives are chaotic as they sway in the Great Cocoon winds, their schools fluttering with each gust of wind that snatches them. In reality, our lives are perfect, and we don’t want for anything.
We have observed that other species are less fortunate than us now that we have the ability to strive for the stars. They’ve never felt the Great Cocoon’s fresh air on their pulps — how unfortunate that they should suffer thus, having never tasted pure delight! We must free them from their suffering and bring enlightenment to their species, so that no other species on the planet will ever have to suffer the agonies of inequity and poverty. Only then can we consider our mission accomplished.
