“Whether you’re trading, exploring or simply gathering resources, Star Nomad 2 actually makes you feel as if you’re really part of a growing struggle in a vast and diverse universe.”
80% – WWG

“Combat is as tough as the likes of Elite: Dangerous despite the lack of 3D dogfights, because the AI is extremely clever.”
8/10 – Brash Games UK

“Depth uncommon for an indie game... able to carve out its place among the must-play for Steam.”
8/10 – The Shelter

About This Game

Set in a dynamic open-world sandbox with an evolving conflict between three major splinter groups of humanity, players can freely be merchants, bounty hunters, pirates, miners, smugglers or wanderers.

Your actions or in-actions, big or small carry consequences that are noticed by the inhabitants and factions. Empires will rise and fall, take a side, or sow the seeds of anarchy.

Be immersed in a universe that's alive with random events offering pilots an opportunity for exploitation. Be involved in dynamic economies with logistical supply & demand at the mercy of a capitalistic merchant or a menacing pirate.

Be the catalyst to decide the fate of humanity.

Key Features:

  • Squad RPG progression via skills & perks, upgrades & modules.
  • Deep trade system with dynamic supply & demand, affected by events, piracy & conflict.
  • Fluid real-time combat with tactical pause & a wide variety of weapons.
  • Resource gathering to upgrade to higher tier modules and looting of combat kills.
  • Factions will conquer & defend systems with fleet movements. Your actions, big or small, have a major effect on the tide of conquest!
  • Random events offer opportunities and also ensure no two game plays out the same.
  • Random encounters offer interesting side-quests or tough choices with major consequences.
  • Many classes of ships offer different tactical possibilities, including Carriers!
  • Clever enemies that fly their vessels to abuse their strengths. Fast & agile ships will flank and out-speed your big guns, large ships will broadside tank with their strong directional shields.
  • Take part in epic fleet battles with Capital Ships duking it out among support ships and hordes of combat drones!
  • Tweak-able Squad AI, never be caught flying with stupid, ever.
  • Challenging, but fair Rogue-like-esque gameplay.
