Kalypso Media and Realmforge Studios have today announced that space station management sim Spacebase Startopia has completed its final landing checks and successfully touched down 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.
To celebrate the explosion-less journey from beta to launch, fans can now check out a series of strategy guides aimed at helping players familiarise themselves with their new donut-shaped home and get a leg-up with their duties as Commander. Episode 1 covers the base’s three unique decks, on which players can host their visitors and residents as well as construct an assortment of buildings and galactic gadgetry; Episode 2 introduces the ‘Fuzzies’ – cute, assistant robots who will muck-in with the less glamorous jobs around the station; and Episode 3 focuses on ensuring the player’s communication skills (both verbal and telepathic) are up to snuff.
Spacebase Startopia sells players the galactic dream: managing their very own donut-shaped space station. Overseen and assisted (when she feels like it) by the base’s sarcastic on-board AI, players will play Commander to their floating home-away-from-home on the station’s three unique decks with a variety of gadgetry while tending to the wants and needs of a diverse array of vacationing extra-terrestrial lifeforms. In multiplayer, up to 4 players can work together to build the galaxy’s greatest getaway, or seek oblivion unto their rivals with daring feats of economic sabotage.
