Stars in Shadow is a turn-based 4X science fiction strategy game that allows players to take a faction of their choice to the stars to build an interstellar empire. The game comes with all the traditional mechanics of a classic 4X game but adds its own spin on things by having unique faction mechanics and a vivid 2d art style.
A new trailer has been released to showcase some of the gameplay including the empire management and turn-based combat. We previewed the game upon its early access launch and found it to be a charming 4X with great potential.
Stars in Shadow is set to release January 19th, 2017 on Steam and other digital download platforms at an SRP of $24.99. The game can already be purchased and played in Steam’s Early Access program. Keep an eye out for Review which will be coming soon.
