Contest: Explore the universe in Between the Stars

We've got some Steam copies up for grabs in today's contest for Between the Stars! Space is super big. And super vast. And super scary. It's kind of like the ocean (huge, expansive, terrifying), but like, different. It's so weird! I think I...

Checking out the battle system of Star Control: Origins

I have a heavy bias toward Star Control. It is one of the first PC games I ever fell in love with alongside MYST, though my original introduction to the series took place on the Sega Genesis. The original Star Control is likely not worth go...

New Star Control screenshots and Founders Program

Star Control II is one of the best games ever made. Getting that out of the way, I was pretty happy when Stardock announced last year that they would be reviving the series. The original creators Paul Reiche and Fred Ford will not be d...

What's up with No Man's Sky and these mysterious packages?

Hello Games has been sending packages to the Reddit moderators for the No Man's Sky page. They include cassettes (like CDs, but even older!) numbered "x/16" and a bunch of No Man's Sky swag -- pins, socks, and a signed poster that reads "ho...
