Om spillet

Light of Altair is a sci-fi colony building game with a deep plot. Grow colonies from landing pod to metropolis, while sending off new spaceships to expand your territory to other worlds. You are not alone in space, 8 factions from different parts of the world are all following their own agendas in the solar system; diplomacy and orbital-combat are essential to learn.
Light of Altair is based on a custom built 3D engine that enables easy zooming from galaxies all the way down to individual moons and asteroids covered in the colonies with their glass domes, mines and launch pads. Advanced shader technology is used to add rich details and lighting to surfaces.
  • Build colonies on planets and asteroids throughout a system.
  • Manage industries and colonists to grow from a tiny landing unit into a towering city.
  • Detailed storyline based on a future-history of Earth.
  • Rich single player campaign traced across the galaxy.
  • Play out important plot events from different sides taking on the role of one of 8 different factions.
  • Detailed tech-tree with over 30 weapons, buildings, and ship-mods to discover.
  • Design ships: Pick a ship schematic and equip weapons, armour and mods to hardpoints. Then command shipyards to build a fleet from the design.

For the lack of a better phrase, I would call this the "poor man's Sins of a Solar Empire", that has more of a focus on planet building than combat. LoA is far from a bad game, but does suffer from a basic UI and occasional glitchy play. The depth in strategy is not huge but offers enough to give you some ongoing challenges to master. Graphically it is fairly low def, but the planets and rotating your view around them looks decent. Other parts like the combat graphics do look worse though as with the UI in general.

Rather than being more a 'sandbox' RTS like Sins, LoA has a structured campaign to vary your goals (each mission will have a dozen or so goals to complete), progressing the storyline as you work to push further out into the galaxy. This is one of the stronger points to the game as it keeps you engaged while progressing the story, slowing giving you more powers as you advance. I would estimate there is about 10-15hrs of campaign to play, plus hard mode if you want more!

Not being able to pause time with the space bar (or remap the keys!) was frustrating as you can slow down and speed up time, and use this frequently. It is also very easy to miss new notifications as you need to manually clear your old notifications to see the new ones. For new players this can leave you very confused at what you should be doing till you get into the flow of clearing manually and reading everything! I have also had goals not trigger when completed, resulting in having to retry the level, but this may be isolated cases that won't impact you necessarily.

Despite the short comings, I still find myself loosing track of time playing this as I do find it a rather enjoyable little space strategy game (... once you get used to it!). :)

A very interesting indie strategy title where in each mission you build up colonies on different planets and defend yourself against rival nations.

The major let down here is the combat where you're just throwing masses of ships against other masses of ships, within combat you have no control over your ships whatsover.

It's just a shame that the developers never expanded on the game as they had planned to do originally.

8 / 10

This is one of the best single player strategy games I've ever played.

For people like me who totally suck at RTS and get destroyed by even the most harmless enemies, this little game here is a real relief :)

Colonizing planets is enjoyable and gladly the micromanagement is easy enough to do for even such economic untalented players like me. And the small planets! I love that, always adored it when you can see the curvature of the planet.

Is it worth the 13€ they ask on Steam for it ?
Maybe not, but if you can get it for cheaper (i got mine from a bundle) a safe recommendation.
