What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Starship Corporation Early Access Alpha release on Steam will give players the chance to experience the game during development and shape its future as it evolves throughout the development process.
We will continue to create new features and may make significant changes based on community feedback. The goal is to improve the game on a regular basis through updates that add and polish features and content, optimizations and bug fixes.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We want to ensure a polished and fun game at launch, so we will make sure our time in Early Access is adapted to reach that goal. Currently, we expect a full release in 2017”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of Starship Corporation will enable you to expand your business to the entire galaxy, to build you own ships at the shipyards and send them on missions. It will have additional content like military and mining equipment, as well as new fuselages – and maybe even content that will be inspired by user suggestions…
The full game will also include multiplayer functionality, so that you will be able to compete with other players for the best contracts in the galaxy.
The completed version will also be available in German and Russian.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At Early Access launch players can expect to see the most important functions of the game for the sandbox mode, designing blueprints and testing their ships in crew management missions, selling their designs and unlocking new technology. The expansion of your business will currently be limited to the solar system and civilian vessels only.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We currently do not have any plans on increasing the price.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Player feedback is not only extremely important, but also fun!
We want to invite all participants to inspire each other and share their ideas, so that we all can imagine together how even more awesome this game can become in the near future. Starship Corporation has been thriving from community ideas in the forum (http://www.starshipcorporation.com/forum) from the start, and we are looking forward to continuing that process.”

Military Update



Iceberg Interactive and Coronado Games have released a major update for their starship-building sim Starship Corporation, currently available in Steam’s Early Access program.

The ‘Military Update’ enables the player to equip their starships with much needed military might, to counter the many dangers in space. While you progress and build your starship, you can now unlock all weapons and fuselages needed for the interplanetary military-industrial complex. Simultaneously, several new rooms have been added, including the basic cannon, advanced cannon, smart missiles (take those meteorites down!) as well as the railgun. New contracts to build exciting new ships are also now available.

Development takes a big step forward with this Military Update. There is a lot more to be discovered, most importantly the final missing piece of this game: the strategy elements to unlock new markets in the galaxy map. However, for now we will focus on fixing issues that may pop up with today’s big update, so keep the feedback coming!

Twelfth Update

Version 1.2.1:

Gameplay Changes:

This update includes a new military fuselage - the military vessel 'Kartikeya', and a new contract: 'LRM Scout Vessel':
This fuselage is a stripped down version of a light cruiser, that was used extensively in recent conflicts. It was finetuned to adapt to speed and maneuvaribilty, while at the same time providing double layer protection.

About This Game

IMPORTANT: This game is EARLY ACCESS ALPHA. Please do not PURCHASE it unless you want to actively SUPPORT DEVELOPMENT of the game and are prepared to handle with SERIOUS ISSUES and POSSIBLE INTERRUPTIONS of gameplay.

STARSHIP CORPORATION is a starship-building simulation game in which you must design and build spaceships for a hugely demanding galaxy-wide market. It is you who must decide which technologies to invest in first, where to open new offices and where to establish new markets. You must design every little detail about the interior layout of your creations, from the location of the bridge, engines, generators and crew quarters to the position of each elevator, corridor and power line. You must then gain an intergalactic reputation by testing your ships and their crew's capabilities in a series of real-time strategy missions, to simulate emergency or combat situations, and test your vessels to their limit - and let the competition know just what they are up against.

CURRENT FEATURES:
- Sandbox Mode with access to the Solar System’s Trade Network and its procedural generation of ship design contracts
- 202 unlockable rooms and facilities for construction
- 24 Missions for standard operation, emergencies and hostile encounters to test your ship in Crew Management
- 22 unlockable fuselages
