If you’re anything like some of us and you’re a sucker for cutaway management games like FTL, Fallout Shelter, and Star Command, then you might be interested in the upcoming Pixel Starships.
Sporting the retro 8-bit design that’s all the rage on mobile these days, Pixel Starships puts players in the role of a captain who has to micromanage a (cute) crew, go on missions, and gradually upgrade his or her ship. What’s even better is that the devs are skewing the title toward the MMO side of the spectrum: “We want to invest in a persistent world similar to World of Warcraft with fresh content and new players making the game alive and exciting for decades.”
Pixel Starships recently completed a successful Kickstarter campaign to finish the game’s development. It goes into early access alpha on August 20th, with an iPhone and iPad launch later in 2015. A PC version is slated for next year.
You can check out a couple of Pixel Starships’ videos after the break to get a better feel for this stellar title.
