Here's a list of reasons why you need Star Command

11:40 AM on 04.04.2011 // Maurice Tan

I could explain in detail why Star Command has jumped to my most anticipated mobile game of the year. Instead, here is a list of reasons from the game's website and the Reddit thread where War Balloon Games answered Redditors.

  • It's Game Dev Story meets Star Trek
  • Replayability: create your spaceship for peaceful resolutions or aggressive negotiations
  • There's diplomacy as you explore the galaxy
  • X-Com is their #1 game of all time
  • Other influences include Master of Orion 2, Ascendancy and Star Wars: Rebellion (Supremacy)
  • No nickel and diming of content
  • They are taking the jettisoning of personnel under consideration
  • If you're not convinced at this point, you never will be

Star Command is planned for a Summer 2011 release on Android and iOS devices. HNNNG!
