After a successful crowdfunding campaign in 2018, Starmancer from Ominux Games and publisher Chucklefish has now been confirmed to be available in Early Access on August 5.

In Starmancer players build their own space station, taking on the role of the station A.I. tasked with sustaining human life, regrowing bodies for the thousands of minds trapped in your memory banks and defending the station at any cost. Starmancer offers gameplay with consequences, a living sandbox environment, crafting, and managing the daily lives of colonists. Create a fully functional space station that supports a utopian society where everyone is well fed, happy, and safe under the watchful eye of a benevolent A.I.

I actually personally backed this one on the Kickstarter, so it's going to be awesome to see how far it's come. The early builds which are no longer available were very interesting but they've re-done and overhauled almost the entire game since the prototype. The developer has been regularly providing and supporting Linux builds throughout the Beta period too which has been wonderful to see.

Starmancer will be available on Steam Early Access on 5 August for £16.99 / $19.99 / €19.99.

Aww man, it was just a couple days ago that I looked at my Steam wish list and was fooled by the release day. I thought the game was going to be done on August 5th! Dangit. Well... I'm glad for the milestone of entering Early Access. I read their EA blurb on Steam and it sounded like they're going to do what Satisfactory is doing, which is remain in EA for a really long time. I feel conflicted about that as a consumer. I don't know when's a good time to jump in. On the other hand, I want to buy the game since it's pretty low priced and the developers are encouraged.
