Stardock owns Star Control and is planning an "XCOM-like" reboot

So, haters win.

I think this is a shame too. I have only limited knowledge of the Star Control bru-ha-ha but I hope 2019 sees the end of it and Stardock continue making interesting games. Good luck Brad.


#1773

I’ll miss you, Brad, but I understand the competing needs between running Stardock and finding a fun, online social venue. I hope you can find a way to do both in the future.

Doh…

You haven’t been to his Twitter account in the past 24hrs have you? :)


#1776

Yikes.

Is #freestarcontrol trending?

I … admit I haven’t. Yeah, it sure seems like Brad has found an outlet, lol.


#1781

Star Control Origins came in at number 4 of Yahtzee’s best games of 2018.
Not too shabby.


#1782

Aw fuck no!


#1783

Fingers crossed for SD to prevail.

I guess buying the game now (if possible) you’d risk that P&F end up with the $?


#1784

I think this has always been the case, if they were to prevail.


#1785

Well, guess it wasn’t the case before they started rattling their sabers (once they smelled money.)


#1786

Man, there’s a wildly inaccurate take on how this whole thing went down


#1787

Weird that you’re not posting this in the thread dedicated to the legal case where most here disagree with you.


#1788

They do not feel like sharing their delusions.

I am leaned back at least 15 degrees from the vertical in my office chair right now, bro; I’m the motherfucking picture of relaxed!
