Star Command Galaxies Released on Early Access


Greetings Star Commanders!

Star Command Galaxies has been released on Steam Early Access. You can view it on the store here.


If you do not receive the E-mail in the next 8 hours (it does go out in different bunches) please message us on kickstarter and we will make sure you get your copy.

Please, leave reviews on the our Steam Store page. Feel free to twitch, youtube, stream, tweet, blog and help spread the word about the game. Tweet at us @StarCommandGame - we would love to see your reactions, feedback and share your experiences.

So what's in this version of the game? Glad you asked!

This Alpha features most of our core gameplay - albeit buggy, unbalanced and susceptible to crashes. You will see: 

  • Brand new GUI 
  • Ability to travel around a procedurally generated galaxy 
  • Alien ships on their own independent routes and goals 
  • Purchasable hulls 
  • Hirable crew members 
  • Crew XP and leveling 
  • Missions Rewards 
  • Purchasable equipment 
  • Multiple ship battles
  • These and about a thousand other tweaks, fixes and additions to our previous release.

So what's next?

Next week we will be showcasing the game at EGX 2015 in Birmingham, UK. Sobriety will be had by all.

Following that we will be focused on weekly bug fixes and balance while working our first monthly update focused on our central loop based on feedback we get from the community. We will be adding new weapons, balancing the ones that exist and adding new personalities, equipment and ships.

Our November/December release will feature planets and colonies. New missions that focus on supply, demand and growth of each colony will be implemented along with multiple biomes for each of the planet types. Planets will also have day/night cycles and hostile alien life.

As we move into the new year we will be introducing a new race, the Midorians and focus on diplomacy and earning loyalty from other races. You can move up within their ranks and earn victory conditions within the game.

We will also be releasing SCIENCE (Star Command Isometric Enhanced New Creation Editor) over the coming months and begin integrating Steam Workshop for mod support. Galaxies was built from the ground up for modability and we can't wait to see your creations.

We are extremely excited about the future of Star Command Galaxies. But most of all we hope you enjoy your own adventures as Captain. And we want to hear about it! If you twitch/youtube/stream/preview/review or do anything else with our game send us a tweet @StarCommandGame - we would love to see it.


We've Cleared Greenlight


Thank you so much to all of you! That was really, really fast.


We are currently planning to release on THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 17 2015.

All kickstarters will receive a SteamKey to redeem their copy!


Galaxies now on Steam Greenlight


Greetings Kickstarters! 

Star Command Galaxies is now on Steam Greenlight and we are planning our release on Early Access on September 17, 2015.

Please vote for Star Command Galaxies here!

This release will represent 2.5 years of extremely hard work from our 7 person team. Many long days, nights and weekends have been spent trying to honor your contribution to an idea we had 4 years ago. We have done our very best to fulfill our original promise: the mobile game on steroids.

Our goal has always been a platform that addresses all the shortcomings of mobile: quick easy updates, non-linear open world gameplay, deep crew interactions and management. What we intend on delivering is a product that will see regular content updates for the foreseeable future. Our first release will focus on combat with a limited number of enemies so that we can take community feedback and improve the core mechanic of the game.

Following that we will be adding in planets, new missions, new races, new hulls and characters along with support for our mod tool, SCIENCE. Many of these features are in their final stages - but we wanted to first put our focus on combat.

Our ultimate goal is exceed your expectations. We want a truly open, sand-box world where you get to command your own ship and go on adventures with your own crew in a world that is both fun, entertaining and challenging.

We understand that many of you may say that the game has taken too long and all we can say is: you have our apologies. We did not set the correct expectation as far as timelines are concerned. But we think the wait will be worth it. Star Command Galaxies is a platform on which we can quickly add new content and act on community feedback - and that was something we set out to do from the very start. We have modeled the game after titles like Prison-Architect, Don't Starve and Kerbal Space Program and we think that the investment will be worth it.

We hope that  you vote for our game to clear Steam Greenlight and that you enjoy the Early Access release in a little over weeks.

As always, we thank you all for your incredible support of our game and our company.

Greetings Kickstarters!

This update has been a long time coming and there are so many new features in this Alpha that we are going to list them for you just so you have an idea of what we have been working on.

1. The Nav Map

In the upper left we added a tab for Nav. If your ship and crew is the heart and soul of our game then navigation is the brains. Without the ability to go someplace, a starship management game isn't much fun. And a lot of things happen during travel: crew states are saved, new maps are loaded, old maps are unloaded and the persistence of the galaxy is established. Your strategy is drawn based on proximity, access, routes, threats, allies and landmarks that can present advantages and disadvantages. Which brings us to...

2. Saves

In the world of Galaxies, we have laid the groundwork for a system of rival ships and races with their own tactics, strategies and goals. Each ship will have it's own Captain and be persistent in the universe. Right now you can damage an enemy ship, leave, come back and the ship will still be in existence, with its damage and crew saved and ready. What does this do? Well it's not much more work for us to give them memory and personalities so that they can try and undermine you, become allies or become your nemesis.

3. Conversations and Radial Menus 

Right click and hold on other characters to interact. We now have the foundation to be able to speak with other characters in the universe. Soon, you will be able to hire, bargain, surrender, exploit and hundreds of other things. Through this same menu you can interact with the hundreds of objects in the game and do dozens of actions like attacking, hacking, healing and many other things.

4. Tactical Enemies 

Enemies will now repair their ship, heal their crew, beam to your ship with goals, flee if they are in danger and strategically attack you. We still have a long way to go but, again, the groundwork has been laid for expanding our enemy AI into other tactics, races and strategies.

5. Missions 

Our first test missions are simple tasks like collecting items or killing specific characters in the universe but this will lead to many more complex gameplay features like giving aid to allies, resupplying your colonies, attacking a mutual enemy, capturing rival captains and many more fun adventures all generated by the game and not written by our team. This will lead to more challenges and rewards as the game continues to grow.

6. Tons of Balance 

The game is FAR from balanced, but there is quite a bit more in the newest version. Weapons, ship systems, food, energy and just about everything else has gotten a little bit of love. Overall, the game should have a much more "solid" feel.

7. More bug fixes than we can list 

From shaders to crew logic to turrets and about a hundred other things, we have been hard at work fixing, adjusting and adding tons of little things to make the game more intuitive and fun.

So where do we go from here? The next update should see the return of planet exploration, new races, new weapons, new conversations and the start of our final system: loyalty. This is basically the whole point of the game - earning relationships with your crew, rival Captain's and other races through your actions (or inactions). This will be where you decide whether to stab your Midorian Captain friend in the back or help him against the surging Antorian empire. Where you can attack and crush an Avarian colony making room for your own or help resupply them and make them grow.We hope this will be where the game really comes together and becomes a fully realized universe.

We're very excited about this release and what is to come. Tell us what you think in the comments below. And as always, we appreciate your faith and patience with us!


Star Command Galaxies Alpha 3: Battlestations!


Battlestations! Battlestations! And all that nautical stuff. The newest update for Star Command Galaxies out and the primary focus is, as you can probably tell, ship-to-ship combat.

Planets have been disabled because we broke a bunch of stuff with our new changes. We updated our super objects to support some new features like breakable external walls which, in turn, made things like the villages and antorian fortress look funky.

There are a ton of finicky things (including repair and heal) but this should start to plant a seed of where the combat is headed.

Our next focus is on bringing it all together. Navigation, desires with a purpose, planets to explore, resources to collect, enemies with their own intelligent goals and day to day activities. We are very excited about the momentum we have now. This update has the most "fun" of all of them and the next one should be even better.

Can't wait for you to play! Enjoy!
