4x strategy fans will look to the stars today as publisher Iceberg Interactive releases turn-based 4x strategy title ‘Stars in Shadow’ into Steam’s Early Access Program. Developed by Canadian outfit Ashdar Games, Stars in Shadow features unique comic style graphics, streamlined empire management, sophisticated turn-based tactical combat, and detailed world building. The current Early Access build is an advanced beta, ready to be shipped before the end of 2016, pending final polish and user feedback.
Sven Olsen, lead developer of Ashdar Games says: “Our goal is to make a game that really plays well, rather than one that is just a long list of features. 4X games benefit from intensive polish, and while we do still have more to do, I think EA players will be pleasantly surprised by how much depth is already there.”
Stars in Shadow is now available in Steam’s Early Access program at $24.99 with a 20% discount during the week of launch on Steam. http://store.steampowered.com/app/464880.
