Spacebase Startopia is getting closer and during Gamescom 2020, some new footage surfaced giving us a better look at what to expect from it.

The what - Spacebase Startopia is a fresh take on the classic and much loved Startopia from Mucky Foot Productions, which originally released in 2001. They say it will offer up a mixture of a building sim with city-building and base-management mixed in with some RTS-styled skirmishes. It's due for release on October 23 from  Realmforge Studios (Dungeons 3) and Kalypso Media.

Have a look at the new footage below, with commentary by a developer:

Feature Highlight:

  • Singleplayer campaign with 10 fully voiced single player missions
  • Individually configurable sandbox mode
  • Competitive and a cooperative multiplayer for up to 4 players
  • Build 30+ rooms across three very different decks to offer everything that the visiting aliens could wish for
  • Manage a melting pot of different alien races, each with their own individual – and sometimes contradictory - needs and desires
  • Produce and trade resources to turn a profit, while running sabotage missions against your competitors

You can pre-order if that's your thing from Humble Store and Steam.

I loved the original, still have it. This is a definite purchase for me.

I loved the original, still have it. This is definitely not an immediate purchase for me. If it stays a Steam exclusive, this will of course never be a purchase.

I already doubted they would manage to create something comparable to the real Startopia, and its removal from sale a couple months ago does not speak well on this front.

I watched the video before reading the article about it. I guess it's natural that I thought, "Huh, this makes me want to play Dungeons 3 for some reason." :) Cool that it's made by the same folks.

$50 feels kinda steep compared to other building / management games available. I'll have to see more gameplay and read some reviews for convincing. Maybe the campaign is really cool or something.
