Starlight Inception is Cleared for Launch on PS3 (SCEA)


Escape Hatch Entertainment, LLC (EHE) is very happy to announce that Starlight Inception™ is now available on PS3 in the PlayStation store. Currently it is available in SCEA territories only. We are waiting to hear back from SCEE and estimate that it could take a few more weeks until Starlight Inception is available on PS3 in SCEE territories.

We have been notified by Sony that anyone that has redeemed their PSVita code for Starlight Inception should now be able to find the PS3 version on the store and download it for free since EHE chose to support cross buy for this product.

Please let us know if you have any questions. You can reach us via email at Please list "PS3 question" in the subject line.

Kindest regards,
Melissa, Garry and the Starlight Inception team

Starlight Tactics live on Steam tomorrow (04.07.2015)


Just a quick announcement that Starlight Tactics will be live on Steam tomorrow.

Starlight Tactics is a full 3D turn-based tactical space combat experience set in the Starlight 'verse.

Here is a link to the game page if you want to check it out:

In other news, we are putting the joystick patch for Starlight Inception through it's paces and fixing the last few bugs.  We've been testing it on the beta branch and hope to have it released later today or tomorrow.

It vastly improves joystick configuration in the game, allowing the player to use their joystick and set up bindings in the options menu once joystick is chosen.  I tested it with my really twitchy Microsoft Force Feedback2 joystick and with a Saitek x52 and the experience was awesome.

As soon as the Steam build is posted, we are going to generate the DRM-free PC build as well as the boxed set PC build and send those out to the backers who have been so patiently waiting for them.

Kindest Regards,
Garry and the Starlight Inception/Starlight Tactics Team
