About

Star Control II is the sequel to Star Control. It was developed by Toys for Bob (Fred Ford and Paul Reiche III) and originally published by Accolade in 1992 for MS-DOS. This game features exoplanet abundant star systems, hyperspace travel, extraterrestrial life, and interstellar diplomacy, with the game featuring 25 different alien races that can be communicated with.

The game was ported to the 3DO by Crystal Dynamics in 1994 with an enhanced multimedia presentation, allowed by the CD technology. The source code of the 3DO port was licensed under the GNU GPL in 2002, the game content under a Creative Commons license.

Released to critical acclaim, Star Control II is widely viewed today as one of the greatest PC games ever made, and has appeared on numerous publications lists of the greatest video games of all time.

Nifty image of an Ur-Quan Kohr-Ah, hovering over a city.. it's a combo pic of the alien, and their ship, just rolled into one depiction..

It's not technically Star Control, but this art style immediately reminded me of the Erol Otus drawings from the SC1 manual, and all the little details are so similar to SC it's hilarious. Little eyes on tentacle stalks, giant mushrooms, strange creatures attacking a landing party, etc.

I've seen a few people cover this song, but none have ever quite hit the spot for me. Mine doesn't either, but hey--I tried!
