This is how Starfall Tactics is detailed by developers, Snowforged Entertainment
In a decaying, war-torn galaxy dominated by three rival factions, you can assemble your own spaceship flotilla and lead it into battle. Adapt to new challenges by customizing and decking out your ships. Evolve your tactics by unlocking new parts and finding rare ship modules. Dominate the battlefield and create a name for yourself among the stars.
Fight your battles using a variety of ships – from subtle frigates, to deadly cruisers and heavy dreadnoughts. However, a reliable fleet isn’t the only ingredient for success. Effective commanders will have to rely on their ability to properly assess the situation, taking into account many factors, such as the equipment of enemy ships, the surrounding environment and the available technology.
Everything in Starfall Tactics, from the hull of your ship down to the individual engines, is created using blueprints. Players can easily customize and outfit ships, adapting their tactics for a variety of situations. Every choice matters – the diverse range of tools directly influences your strategy against opponents and allows you to create truly unique fleets.
No Place Like Home
Earth was dying. Centuries of accelerated population growth and unchecked environmental policies have left it in ruins. There was no use prolonging the inevitable, so a planet-wide evacuation was set in motion. The course was set to Ancora – the nearest planet fit for terramorphing.
This moment is remembered as one of the greatest technological achievements of the human race and a time of great triumph for many. But what most history books leave out is how many people didn’t get a saving ticket to the shuttle.
The Spark That Lit The Fire
After the exodus from Earth, humanity split into two major groups who, while not exactly fond of each other’s company, were never in open conflict.This all changed when an unidentified alien vessel crash-landed on planet Tartarus, right on the border of a contested region. Neither party agreed to give up the mysterious cargo, which lead to an all-out war, fueled by centuries of ideological hatred.Meanwhile, back on Earth, the last of the planet’s inhabitants have emerged from the ashes of what was once their home. Robbed of any resemblance of security, with no future to behold, they demand retribution from the original colonists for dooming their homeworld. Things are about to get ugly.
Ruthless, assertive and above all, devoted. Originally an independent militant organization created by settlers that dreamt of establishing a Far Left regime on Ancora, Vanguard actively supports the spread of their particular brand of socialism.
Exiles, outlaws and descendants of those who were left for dead on Earth many years ago. These people have been living in a radioactive wasteland for many generations and it left palpable marks on their appearance, lifestyle and, as any Vanguard soldier will be quick to tell you, mental health.Hiding deep below ground and occasionally emerging on the surface in search of food and supplies, the last of the planet’s inhabitants were like vermin digging into the body of a corpse. With food shortages, frequent hazards and the population slowly shrinking, they were destined to eventually disappear altogether.That changed when the Black Blizzard, a prolonged environmental disaster created by drought, erosion and dust storms, forced the lost sons and daughters of Terra to flee their dying homeworld.
Now, the self-proclaimed “Deprived” are launching a space program from scratch. Spurred on by a mixture of hope, anger and resentment, they want to claim a piece of space to call their own. Even if it means seizing it from others.
Snowforged Entertainment is currently focused on PC Windows. The availability/schedule for Linux and Mac versions is to be determined. We will keep you informed with any news regarding this very promising new title as soon as it becomes available.
