About

STAR-BOX – RPG Adventures in Space!
Strap on your gravity boots, power up your laser, and climb aboard your spaceship for a retro-styled, RPG-jaunt into the unknown! Travel around an open-world, sandbox universe where you are the architect of your own story.

Fly around an infinite universe exploring alien worlds, abandoned cities, overrun space-stations, derelict ships, and parallel dimensions with little more than your trusty laser and inept, mechanical bodyguards. Collect and equip hundreds of items, weapons, and armours to help you on your journey. Get swept along in the politics of the year 4135 and lead a rebellion against a corrupt government and powerful corporations. Fight and capture 19 enemy vessels in tactical, bridge-based combat, and hire crew members to boost your fighting skills. Fall foul of strange spatial anomalies, giant space-fish, and human-hating AI programs through dynamic events that can strike at any time. Chose to work for Oberon Bounties and hunt down the scum and villains of the universe, for the Collector’s Guild, Earth Military, or for the mysterious Cicero recently awoken from a 2000 year cryo-nap. And if you fancy a challenge: play the game in ‘Ironman Mode’ where you only get a single chance at making it big.
Features:A FULL SANDBOX EXPERIENCE:
Explore space, untethered by a constricting story:

  • Choose your gender, starting vessel, and the company that raised you.
  • Undertake many exciting missions which include: boarding space-stations, killing their crew and stealing their tech.
  • Hunting down ferocious beasts on alien worlds.
  • Visiting alien shrines built on ancient asteroids.
  • Steping foot on abandoned medical ships where the undead roam the corridors.
  • Fighting in tactical bridge-based space battles where you can capture new ships or destroy your enemy and use their hull for scrap.
  • And searching for illegal, low-tax settlements to avoid paying the 100% tax imposed by Earth Gov on all purchases.

Find hundreds of items:

  • Pick alien flowers for healing chemicals or useable genetic material.
  • Salvage scrap metal to repair and upgrade your mechanical bodyguards
  • Equip armours, lasers, and grenades to make exploring space less dangerous.
  • Find and use futuristic drugs to boost your skills and health.

Chose to work for companies or go it alone:

  • Explore random sectors of space where pirates roam and plunder is there for the taking.
  • Work for Oberon Bounties and hunt down criminals on alien worlds, spacestaions, or in powerful ships.
  • Join the Collectors Guild and bring back strange objects in return for special armours.
  • Join Earth Military and gain discounts on tax, and access new specialist ships.
  • Seek out and work for Cicero: the man with a mission to change the universe.

A non-compulsory storyline

  • All humans are pledged into a company at the age of five and don’t see their family for the next 20 years. You have just graduated from a company of your choosing and your excellent grades have earned you a new shiny ship. Seek out your barely-remembered mother and get caught up in a political struggle that threatens to tear apart 2000 years of beautiful dystopia.

Play ‘Ironman Mode’ for a true Roguelike experience.

  • For those that love a challenge: choose to play the game with just a single life.
  • Ironman forces you to think carefully about every decision.
  • Escape pods become a vital part of the game.
BRIDGE BASED SHIP COMBAT – ACTION RPG GROUND COMBAT
Fight ship battles from the comfort of your bridge, issuing orders and using your specific skills to destroy or capture enemy vessels.

  • Each ship has a unique missile, laser, and cannon strength, all effective at different ranges.
  • Hire engineers, science officers, and tactical officers to give bonuses to your combat abilities.
  • Disable enemy engines to allow you to get close enough to board them, boost your shields, and beam aboard your mechs to capture their ship once you’ve lowered the enemy shields.
  • Fly 19 unique vessels.
  • Choose to fly a ship with an escape pod and live on even after your ship is destroyed.

Walk around on alien planets and creepy space-stations to find loot and accomplish missions.

  • Each ship sports a different number of mech bays which you can use to maintain your mechanical bodyguards.
  • Have up to five allied mechs helping you defeat your enemies.
  • Fight against alien creatures, pirates, corporate militias, space wasps, and AI controlled mechs.

STAR-BOX: RPG Adventures in Space reviews and comments

Game from the creators of the Ford'S Tavern. Same problem as last time-add-on above engine RPG Maker XP cause wild brakes. And it is all: Boevka, peaceful locations, even ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Menyuki and those are lagut. It'S just unpleasant to play. Boevka, by the way, is the same as in the Ford'S Tavern. Given that the development team consists of: 1) One guy who all Kodit 2) His pregnant wife 3) Their seven-year-old son, who is testing everything... There is no chance that the engine will be in order.

The Character's Movements are jerky. In HD Resolution, the Game that my Monitor does not support this Resolution says, but UHD works, except: In UHD, the Wallpaper is not shaped but black Bars are right-/. In addition, the Ship (to hollow it into the Screen), even though it is completely on the Screen at the Resolution. The Sprite of the Memory Column has powerful Representational Errors. Lucky thing whether the Game starts or with an Error (... Line 365 ...) Crashes. This Error, according to Developer, is that not all Game files are found.

While the actual gameplay seems like it could be fairly decent, it is ruined by the god-awful user experience. Every single part of the UI is as bare bones as you can get, no polish whatsoever, and chalk full of bugs. Even simple things like fullscreen vs. windowed mode is pretty broken. For example, when you die in windowed mode, the game goes back to fullscreen mode until you change it again. Also, in less than an hour of play time, I've experienced 3 crashes due to some mouse script the game is running. And why on Earth is the game "always on top" of other windows?! Hopefully the dev will one day see that user experience is extremely important and fix all the issues and polish the UI, as the game really might be something worth playing. Until then, however, it is very difficult to reccomend this game... to anyone.

I really wanted to like this Game and give the Game a Chance although it was done with the RPGMaker apparently. This is also the Reason for many of the Problems and Bugs. The Game is very Retro ... What would be ok if everything worked well. One of the Main Problems I see is that the Mechs you use, even at the highest Level, are still so stupid that they get stuck behind virtually every Edge. This in turn leads to the Mech no longer addressing Opponents directly, even if they are standing right next to him. There are some missions with Enemies that are very Strong but that the Mech only takes into account when they shoot at me, otherwise they are ignored ... Sigh..... This is not The way people can do it! And for 10euro already certainly not! Since there are free Space Games that are better Eg Endless Sky (following from EV Nova) Fingers away from GAMES that were made with the RPGmaker!... This is not going to be anything
