FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The long-awaited follow-up to the viral Flash game Starcom enters Early Access on December 12th, 2018
You’ve finally made it out of the academy and have been given your first starship to command. Sure, it’s just a light shuttle, but you’ve got to start somewhere, right? Suddenly “somewhere” is stranded in an unknown galaxy surrounded by warring alien factions and no way home. You must explore uncharted worlds, research new technologies, and transform your tiny vessel into a devastating battlecruiser to survive in this mysterious universe.
November 12, 2018 — Almost ten years ago, a small Flash game of space combat and exploration called Starcom spread across the interwebs like the game’s anonymous alien menace, gaining over a million plays within a few months of its release. Since then, the game’s indie developer has been teasing footage of a PC “re-imagining”: bigger, more detailed, pulling the player into a beautiful and strange open-world universe.
In a market full of procedural rogue-like space sims, Starcom: Nexus stands out as an elegant, richly-envisioned, story-driven universe designed with careful detail.
While the game isn’t available yet, closed Beta testers, including both fans of the original game and newcomers, have been wildly enthusiastic about the gameplay and writing.
“Starcom: Nexus simply captures the spirit of any number of the Star Trek franchise, and really lets you be a part of it. Mysteriously cast into unknown space? Check. Focus on discovery and exploration? Check. Massive war between two alien races, where you intercede as a third party? Check. Space-y pew pew pew? Check. Starcom: Nexus just feels damn good.” – Chalgyr’s Game Room, on the closed Beta.
Add Starcom: Nexus to your Steam Wishlist now and on December 12th, 2018, enter a universe you won’t want to escape.
