Rent and host a variety of ETs to keep your space base updated and make sure your visitors mention their trip to friends by giving them unique entertainment experiences like visits to cat cafes and nightly parties led by floating DJs Offer.
While fun to look at, life forms aboard the Startopia spacebase also serve a practical purpose – energy. Use this valuable resource to expand your base and make it the # 1 hotspot in the galaxy!

Not all are sunspots and cosmic rainbows, however! Use cunning acts of economic sabotage to prevail against rivals or send mechs to devastate those who will challenge your rule if you don’t make too much of a fuss about stealth. Oh, and keep all three eyes peeled for space pirates sailing in the solar winds.

I am VAL, your helpful and efficient space station AI! According to my records, this station has not been used at all for the past 17 years! How very strange. In addition, you appear to be the only rational way of life in this sector. Well then, CONGRATULATIONS! I hereby officially declare you commander of this space station! Hopefully you will have more success than your predecessor who, according to the logbook, ran into some worm-like aliens … Oh, nothing to worry about! You have to do a lot to prevent the same from happening to you. Among other things, there is the development of additional sectors, the maintenance of the three important main decks as well as the customer acquisition and entertainment of our extraterrestrial visitors, which gives us enough energy for our plans for global improvement. Oh, and before I forget – it’s probably just a bug in my security logs anyway – but my sensors are just showing a bunch of hostile creatures in all other sectors … So what are we waiting for? Let’s go to work! Let’s conquer space together. “SPACEBASE STARTOPIA impresses with its original mix of business simulation and strategy for building empires, paired with classic RTS battles and a good dose of humor. In addition to the challenging single player campaign and the versatile combat mode, there are also competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes for up to four players. And as if maintaining the three space station decks, entertaining the eight alien races and defending against enemy invaders weren’t enough of a challenge, the AI of the dynamic narrator won’t solve any problems and will comment on events in loving but sharp-tongued ways Way. – The 10 missions single player campaign, which is fully synchronized, requires all of your skills as the commander of the Spacebase Startopia to create one of the most attractive trade and tourism destinations in the known universe. – Each of the three decks requires your leadership skills, The lower deck contains all the rooms you need to survive, while the fun deck focuses on your visitors and the flora and fauna on the bio deck provides sufficient resources for survival and a home for the graceful dryads. – Assert yourself against your competitors because you are not alone on the space station. Sabotage your opponents’ economy or attack them with your mech units, trade and beware of space pirates trying to enter your station. – The dynamic narrator AI “VAL” reacts to your decisions and is always by your side in word and deed – and occasionally extremely unqualified comments. – In addition to the extensive single player campaign, you can expect an individually configurable sandbox mode as well as a competitive and a cooperative multiplayer mode for up to four players.
