Spacebase Startopia Gets Final Trailer Before March 26th Launch
SPACEBASE STARTOPIA PREPARES FOR LAUNCH WITH ILLUMINATING BEGINNERS GUIDE TRAILER
Ectotherms and cat cafés spark joy in space sims final pre-launch trailer
Upcoming space station management sim Spacebase Startopia is braced and set for its March 26 launch on Windows-PC/Linux/Mac, PlayStation 4|5, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One consoles. The Nintendo Switch version will follow later in the year.
Direct from mission control, Kalypso Media and Realmforge Studios are releasing today a brand-new Beginners Guide video giving an overview of the base and showing an assortment of activities in which alien visitors can participate once theyre aboard, including an all-night-all-day disco, space whale therapy, and a loot box lottery where willing participants can swap their hard-earned space bucks for a quick spike of dopamine and the chance to win a new hat.
Alongside hordes of rambunctious alien tourists and one totally-not-homicidal AI, Spacebase Startopia is also home to another more recent infestation: rumors. In the base’s on-board cat cafes, outlandish feline-based hearsay has run rampant, spurred on by a recent report investigating the phenomena.
Budding Commanders can pre-purchase the game now to receive 10% off and immediate access to the games beta and Game Preview.
Spacebase Startopia is a galactic new take on a fan-favorite space base-management game set in...well, space! This vibrant and often absurd universe offers players an exciting blend of city-building and base-management, with a flash of RTS skirmishes.
By breathing life back into a true classic, developer Realmforge Studios strikes a careful balance between nostalgia and innovation in its reimagining of the popular strategy game, which revolves around a donut-shaped space station filled to the brim with a colorful cast of aliens managed by their tireless commander (that’s you, human).
In Spacebase Startopia, players will carve out their own little space in the universe, ready to become a galactic utopia – if your management skills are up to the task. With three different game modes and a vast amount of management decisions to be made under the watchful eye of the VAL, the station’s sardonic AI, there’s plenty of in-depth gameplay waiting for new and seasoned players alike. But beware of invading space pirates, who will do their best to ruin your carefully laid plans!
