In early 2015, Massive Damage ran a Kickstarter campaign for their game – Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander. They managed to raise over $187,000, smashing their goal of $40,000. Now Massive Damage’s plans have finally come to fruition, with the first act of Halcyon 6 coming to Steam Early Access this week.
Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander puts you in the middle of a disastrous war with one primary mission: save the human race from extinction. Unfortunately for you and your group of officers, the odds are not stacked in your favour. Your time on Halcyon 6 (a derelict starbase left behind by a precursor race) will be spent gathering resources from the nearby star systems, fending off enemies and exploring star systems.

Inspired by games like X-COM, Star Control and FTL, Halcyon 6 uses rouge-like elements to increase the replayability, with randomised officers, galaxies and events to shake things up every time you play.
