Star Ruler is a real-time 4x space strategy game being developed by Blind Mind Studios where you control an interstellar empire in a hostile galaxy against a number of opponents. In a sort of context definition Blind Mind Studios Staff defines Star Ruler as: “It’s slightly more RTS than 4X; it is most certainly way more 4X than SoaSE (Sins of a Solar Empire).“
Some time ago, about 10 months to be more precise, I made a review of Star Ruler. By then, as I then came to know, the game (although released) was actually still in “Beta” (at version 126.96.36.199). The review score turned out to come out a bit low because of that. I came to realise that although released the game was in fact “half-done”, well maybe not at half state but still under heavy development. BMS released the game as “it was” because allegedly they run-out of funding to continue the development.
And in fact BMS continued to improve Star Ruler. After a succession of patch releases the game should be now much more stable (and finished). With a physical box target release for 16th of September 2011 Star Ruler gains a new breath. You can download the latest demo (v188.8.131.52) from here.
Video games publisher Iceberg Interactive confirmed that will publish a boxed version of Star Ruler. The game will be available in retail stores throughout Europe, Australia, South-East Asia and various other territories on 16 September 2011. A fully localized German version will be on sale in German retail stores on the same date.Subscribe RSS
