Spacebase Startopia is an science fiction economic strategy. The project was developed by Realmforge studio, known from the Dungeons series. The production is a continuation of the game Startopia by the non-existent Mucky Foot team.
In the game we play the role of the commander of the space station Startopia, which for the last seventeen years has been unused. This position is gained by accident, because the artificial intelligence on board, known as VAL, considers us to be the only rational life form in the sector.
Our goal is to make Starbase Startopia the best place for trade and tourism in the whole galaxy and avoid the fate of the previous commander, who disappeared without a trace from contact with a giant worm-like alien race.
Spacebase Startopia is a classic economic strategy. Our task is to manage the station, expand and improve it, earn money and ensure the satisfaction of the residents. The game is played in real time.
The station is divided into three levels. The Sub Deck contains all the facilities necessary to keep life on board. Fun Deck is a place to entertain residents and guests, while Bio Deck provides plants and other useful resources. Each level can be improved by modernizing the technologies used in it and by building new rooms.
There are eight alien races at the station, each with its own unique needs and preferences. An additional attraction is the fact that we are not the only commander on board of Starbase Startopia. We can trade with these rivals or attack them after constructing an army of mechs. These machines are also useful for pirate abortions and for repelling attacks from various enemy groups living in this sector of the galaxy.
Spacebase Startopia offers a feature campaign with ten extensive missions with full dubbing for the characters. There is also a sandbox mode available, which can be configured to a large extent.
In addition, there is a multiplayer option. The game allows for both cooperative fun and competition with other players.
Spacebase Startopia has an attractive three-dimensional graphic design, made in a humorous, slightly cartoon-like, stylistics.
