It’s been a hot minute since we checked in with Starbase, but that was clearly a mistake because Finnish dev Frozenbyte has been pumping out new videos left and right. As we’ve previously noted, the devs characterize the game as a “massively multiplayer online game with gameplay focused on building and designing spaceships and stations, exploration, resource gathering, crafting, trading, and combat” and a focus on simulation, production, and construction on a galactic scale, so it’s definitely one MMO players will want to keep an eye on.
So here’s what the studio’s been up to. First, there was a 30-man space battle as devs waged war over a space station, with little left but debris floating over a gas giant in the end.
Then Frozenbyte focused on how exactly players will be building out their very own ships.
And their space stations, which function in multiple roles across the game, including as player shops.
Yesterday, we got the latest episode of Boltcrackers, which is back as robots Bob and Dr. Bolt try to bust themselves out of prison.
And finally, today, the devs posted up their best yet: a skim through the scale of the whole universe.
