Starcom:Nexus is an action-adventure RPG of space exploration and epic, fast-paced battles. The player takes on the role of a novice starship commander suddenly pulled into a strange galaxy. They must explore strange planets, meet alien civilizations and battle hostile forces to gain the resources and new technologies they’ll need to survive this mysterious universe and find their way home.

It is a follow-up to the popular Flash game Starcom released in 2008 with over 2 million plays to date. Players are not required or expected to have played the Flash game; Starcom:Nexus is a stand-alone story.

The game has been under development since 2014 and started closed Betas in August 2018. It is expected to enter Early Access later in 2018 with a full release sometime in 2019.
