'Starminer' Is A Space Base-building Sim, Coming to Early Access In 2024 - Screens & Trailer

Starminer is a space base-building sim that sees you take your seat as an interstellar contractor.

Design and build an interstellar mining fleet to strip space of its invaluable minerals, and sell them for a tidy profit. Starting with a singular small node ship, you must gather resources from nearby asteroid fields and grow your ship and your fleet.

Whether your goal is to mine resources for profit, become a defensive powerhouse, promote colonization, or something else entirely, must beware.

The alien threat is very real, and they'll track your heat signature the more you expand! Keep flying, keep safe, keep cool. Use warships and defense platforms to protect your fleet at all costs - in real space, in real time.

Slovenian developer Cool And Good Games and publisher Paradox Arc announced that Starminer will launch in Steam Early Access in 2024, and will remain so for about a year.

“The current version of Starminer has a full tutorial, a campaign mode, a survival challenge mode, and a sandbox ship-building mode. Early Access will allow us to build and develop these further with player feedback and add more content to these aspects of the game.”

“The full version of Starminer is intended to have more units, construction options, a dynamic campaign, and improved mechanics from player feedback.”

Key Features:

  • Feel your pulse quicken while piloting your 150,000t warship between asteroids in the vacuum of space in real time. All with fully simulated physics.
  • Balance material requirements with power, tonnage, and size while building your fleet to maximum efficiency, piece by piece, module by module. Will you create a large number of smaller, more nimble vessels or double down on a massive station packed with firepower?
  • Harvest and process valuable materials from asteroids for your profit margins, or use the bountiful resources for the maintenance and expansion of your own mercenary fleet while doing missions for the highest bidders in the sector.
  • Research for new modules and tools to keep expanding your fleet of ships and mining stations. Build link gates to gain access to new riches in new sectors of space.
  • The more you mine, the more you build and the greedier you get, the higher your heat signature becomes. Once it reaches critical levels, the aliens will detect you. Defend your fleet at all costs using defense systems and ships of your design.

Starminer is in development for PC (Steam), scheduled for full launch in 2024/2025.
