Star Prospector: New Patch and Free DLC with New Tower-Defense Game Mode

Cryptstone Games has announced the release of a major new Star Prospector patch (v1.1) and a new free DLC, both included in the same update. Among the patch changes are new buildings, a new perk system, interface enhancements and bug fixes. The free DLC unlocks an entirely new game mode: Tower Defender, which is a tower-defense style game with 8 different levels and many hours of promised new gameplay.

For the ones of you unfamiliar with this game, Star Prospector is a sci-fi real-time strategy game featuring a very interesting blend of RPG elements (progression, experience gain, level up, items purchase). With this new DLC, Star Prospector gains a tower-defense new dimension. To know more about it I invite you to read the Star Prospector – First Impressions article. You can buy the game via GamersGate, Impulse, Desura or directly from the devs through BMT.

Cryptstone Games is an indie studio, and because of that they are very passionate about their games. I know by fact that they intend to keep evolving Star Prospector with more features, maps, levels, and game modes. They would certainly appreciate all the feedback you could give them. You can reach them in the Star Propector’s forums.

      I think it’s a good game (it wouldn’t be in the “Choices of the Month” section otherwise). However, I only played it briefly, and produced the first impressions article. But, it was enough to get the impression that it is a good sci-fi RTS, that totally deserves the price Cryptstone is asking for it.

      Have fun playing, and please get back with your own impressions!

        I gave it a try, it’s certainly fun. But it’s a bit rough around the edges. I noticed some grammar/misspelling (that instead of than), bottom of the map have visible culling (part of hill is drawn, while other part isn’t), etc.

        Only played the first two missions. I noticed that the AI is kinda basic, they engage the first target they see, and mostly ignore others until that target is destroyed. I was able to run an animal around a laser turret using this mechanism when my guy only had 7 hp left lol.

        But pretty good game overall!

    It’s not a bad little game, well worth the $10 price tag. The missions tend to get a bit repetitive over time, but the addition of the DLC may add the variety needed to spice it up some.
