Star Command Galaxies Released on Early Access

21 likes

Greetings Star Commanders!

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

ALL KICKSTARTERS WILL RECEIVE AN E-MAIL FROM SENDOWL WITH THEIR STEAMKEY TO REDEEM AND DOWNLOAD THE GAME.

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.

Cheers, 
Warballoon

      Okay, I never got this key. Tor Iver Wilhelmsen' advice about using the Dec 2014 Key failed to work for me and how the hell am I suppose to know how to send the creators personal messages - I see no way of doing so here.

      So hm,

    4. Earnest Williams on December 2, 2015

      So I got the email but there was no code in it. I replied to the email as instructed, but I've received no communication back.

      I checked an old mail account where I found the sendowl-provided key from Dec 2014, and it works. So check your old mail archives, especially if you have changed KS email address since then.

    7. Earnest Williams on October 6, 2015

      @star command I have not received my steam key or send owl link yet. Please send me a key

    9. Star Command 2-time creator on September 18, 2015

      Please send us personal messages and we can send your steamkeys. Sorry for the delay!

      Just tried getting my key again, but SendOwl is still stuck on fetching files.

    11. Shagrat on September 18, 2015

      I didn't get an email.

    12. Freyar on September 18, 2015

      There's a link in one of the newsletter emails that reads "redeem your steam key" however when I use that link, I end up at send owl starting that out is preparing files for download, and it sits there with no result (permanent spinning icon). Did this when the first alpha came out too.

      I didn't get an email.

      My steam key do not work at all. (SAD)

    15. Maira ZL on September 17, 2015

      You mean I should get this e-mail with a key if I am a backer of "STAR COMMAND: Kickstart Part 2 - The PC/Mac Space Adventure" or if I am a backer of "Star Command Galaxies"? I'm not sure I understand, and I haven't received any e-mail with a key.

      Thanks. I'm glad that's the case. :)

      Kickstarter backers will receive ALL exclusive content from all platforms - so yes, the robot and new hulls. We have built Star Command Galaxies to be highly moddable so adding content and delivering very cool stuff to our kickstarters will get easier as we get past this initial release roll out.

      A question: the Humble store has a "Humble Deluxe Edition" of the game, which includes the following:
      -Exclusive robot
      -2 exclusive hulls

      Is this by any chance the same as the exclusive in-game hull and in-game pet from Kickstarter? If not, will backers get this content?
      Hopefully we will, because if you planning to release exclusive content for Humble, after making your backers wait 3 years in order to play the game, and then give us an edition with less content than one that can be easily purchased at a digital retail channel, I will be seriously pissed.
