Today we are opening up the Founder’s Program to Phase II in preparation for alpha testing (Fall) and beta testing (Winter). 

If you haven’t seen the gameplay teaser, you can check it out here:

We’re still very early in development as you can see.  The creatures and other cool stuff on the planets weren’t quite ready to show yet and we’re saving the best parts for a later reveal.

Feature status


Founders will get access to The Vault.  This is where our internal development blogs are kept, lots of not ready for prime time assets and screenshots are shown and the forum where Founders give feedback on what they like and don’t like what we’re doing. 

To join us, visit here.

More people! finally

a BIG thank you to Draginol for allowing more lifetime people.  When I read a post in the Stardock forums several months ago, it sounded like all the elite founder key (founder's lifetime edition in this case)  chances were already sold out.  Just put $99.99 on my debit card.  Looking forward to seeing how the game plays.  It took me about 5 minutes to whip out my debit card and do the purchase.

How exacly does the game work or what will the player do in game?

on Nov 26, 2016

yeah, id also like more information before i become a founder.

The best way to get an idea of what the game will be like would be to play Star Control II.  You can download the "Ur Quan Masters HD Version" free on the internet.

Thrilled to get in with the Phase II program.  Thank you for making it available again.  I handed my money over faster than a Shofixti...oh too late.

Hi! An avid fan of Star Control 2 here. Didn't have to think twice before becoming a lifetime founder. It's amazing to see the great job you guys are doing.

Can't wait to see something! Star Control II is still my favourite game of all time. It's exactly the right mix of sandbox and epic galactic saga.

So exited about this new Star control game, I loved the original, probably my second fav game. I will be getting the founders version soon...
