What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have always wanted to make an expansive, ever growing universe for would-be starship Captains to explore, and Star Command Galaxies is that platform.

From day one, Galaxies has been concieved as not just a port of our mobile game but an experience that we could fully support. Our goal is to use community feedback to address gameplay issues and release regular updates that add in new content, races, ships and missions. Our early focus is on combat and balance (our core mechanic), followed by planets, and then diplomacy and end game scenarios.

We will be releasing our free mod tool SCIENCE (Star Command Isometric Enhanced New Creation Editor) to our community and leverage full support of Steam Workshop.

Our vision is to support Star Command Galaxies for the weeks, months and years ahead. We hope that you join us and help us make the game the best Starship simulator ever!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticpate that we will be bug fixing, adding content and new features once a month for at least the next six months. After that we will see the current status of the game and, depending on our satisfiaction with product, continue to add new content or move the game into full release.”

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

“The full version of Star Command Galaxies will feature a strong core combat engine, , diplomacy , eight races as well as tons of new ship hulls, missions, weapons, equipment and other fun surprises. We look at Star Command Galaxies as a platform and not just a game to be released and forgotten.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently Star Command Galaxies is focused on the core mechanic: combat. We intend to tighten and polish that until we (and the community) are satisified and move into a complete experience.”

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

“The final price for the game is still being decided, but could increase with added features and content by release.”

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

“We love our community! We have over 10,000 facebook fans and over 6,500 twitter followers. We engage with them on a daily basis and can't wait to see what our expanded Steam userbase brings to the table. Much of our success and opprotunity has been based on our community outreach and we intend to do the same here on Steam. We look forward to hearing your feedback on gameplay, ideas for features, balance and most of all community mods and content when we release our free editor, SCIENCE.”

Beta 2 Progress Report: Bugs, Isolated Stations and Mining Colonies

Greetings Captains!

Beta has gone very, very well for us. We won't even pretend that the game doesn't still have some significant things to improve upon but the stability bug reports are down at a staggering level compared to previous releases. This has given us the breathing room we have been craving for a long time. So what does that mean?

Well, first we have cleaned up a ton of bugs. We should be rolling out our final Beta 1 patch soon. We have been reading the bug forums daily while also addressing anything that comes in from our analytics. The game will continue to get more and more stable and predictable.

Second we are working on some exciting features and great content. To begin with, Beta 2 will shift the galaxy into "Sectors." Your station will be at the center of those sectors and you can travel into them in order to start a self-contained experience. The reason for this is two-fold. First, we can concisely release new content packs and it will be easy for you to locate the new "Midorain Sector" or "Antorian Civil War" sector. Second, our modders will have the ability to build their own sectors. Players that download those sectors form the Steam Workshop will be able to quickly find new, player-created sectors.

We are also starting the Rebel sector from scratch. Up until this point many of our missions and encounters were architypes meant to test a certain feature or concept. None of them really had the character, story or sense of adventure that we try to bring to life in the Star Command universe. We are currently working on brand new adventures starting with a Mining Colony invasion.

We are going to continue to work on content throughout the month some of which will involve making enemy ships more specialty based. It will be much clearer moving forward what a ship "does" - some will have battery draining cannons, others will have freeze rays or the ability to heal other ships.

More to come very soon!

Alpha 8 Released

We have released Star Command Galaxies Alpha 8 and it is by far our best release yet. So what’s new? What’s the focus? Bugs of course! This update has more bug fixes than all of our other releases combined. We spent all month just going through and fixing up crashes, save bugs, quirks and weird stuff that was happening in the game. TO BE CLEAR there are likely some bugs left and some new ones we made along the way but the game should be MUCH more stable and a lot more fun.

About This Game

Star Command Galaxies is the ultimate starship simulator. Become Captain and recruit your crew, build your ship, explore a randomly generated universe and battle alien ships across the galaxy.

You start from humble beginnings in your very own shuttle, taking on various missions at starbases located on the galactic map. As you complete your tasks you will earn money, xp and equipment to help you hire new crew members and purchase a larger ship. Continue cleaning the stars of the vermin that inhabit it including zombies and space pirates.

With your success comes more challenges. Keeping your crew happy is critical to your success. You must keep them fed, well rested and entertained or they will pick up new "quirks" to their personality. A good captain will see their crew earn "perks" - personality bonuses that will help you battle your foes.

New enemies will arrive to challenge you and your crew and it will be up to you to create the ultimate vessel to defeat them.

Star Command Galaxies will be regularly updated with new races, missions, planets, equipment, ships and much more!
