Star Galaxy Revealed By Square Enix, It’s A MMO Space Simulation Game

By Spencer . December 11, 2012 . 7:35pm

starg] Sorry, if you were expecting Star Ocean anything. The Square Enix teaser site like Siliconera predicted is for Star Galaxy, a massively multiplayer simulation game set in outer space. Up to 2,000 people can fight on one gigantic battlefield. Players act as a planet’s commander in chief by managing resources, infrastructure, and power sources. You can develop your base by adding buildings and secure resources by taking over other planets. A navigator character will help during the simulation parts and battles use cards that represent units. Cards can level up and gain new skills.

Star Galaxy has four factions to choose from:

The Boldor Imperial Army led by Roy Bismark. He’s an excellent tactician known for being cold hearted.

The Holy Knights of Selshion led by Dia Vite. This devout faction is lead by their faith in God.

The Universe Trading Union led by Tagel. Tagel says the royal family has a monopoly on resources and wants to fight to split them.

Vivian from the Republic is a feared commander who crushes his enemies and is not fighting to bring peace to the galaxy.

    And the disappointment commences now..

    • Godmars

      Indeed. Are there even any sweet, sweet tears to be enjoyed here?

      • doubletaco

        I don’t think so. Most people seem to be used to this by now.

  • Kairo Fujima

    a browser game? Come on square, don’t make countdowns for things like this unless you put actual effort into it.

    guy in red=laxus and dante’s child xD

  • Godmars

    Its not that they wasted a countdown timer on a browser game, but that they did so for something Atlus has already done.

  • Corey Owens

    Apparently it’s a browser game using flash.

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    Ah Square, and people ask why others dislike Square so much. SEJ: Browser games, social games, and mobile games galore! SENA: Nope not gonna localize good/anticipated game X.

    • ShinGundam

      At least it isn’t Pachinko game.

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        Hmm… that is little uh… what is the word? Underwhelming? Not quite the right word… but close enough.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

      Well this *IS* developed for Japanese…..

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        Do Japanese people really like b/s/m games that much?

    • http://twitter.com/chaoszage Alex Loh

      well said :)

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        It is just the truth.

  • Suicunesol

    I think we should all be happy that it’s not an iOS game.

    • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Treasure Hunter ♢

      “Yahoo!”

  • http://alboreo.tumblr.com Alboreo

    Ugh.

  • Rudy Soto

    At least there’s still Star Citizen.

  • ShinGundam

    I loled, I thought it would be either a Sci-fi Type 0 or Sci-fi Sengoku/Spaceshogun game for yahoo.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Type-1 or Type-0-2. Type-0 is a open and closed game.

  • Rob Hestar

    • Hidayat246

      LIGHTHING RETURN is come first with teaser site, right???

  • Nameless App 1989

    At least its original.

  • Spirit Macardi

    I want to be in the faction led by the space lion! I don’t care what he represents, since he’s a friggin’ lion from space! XD

  • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Treasure Hunter ♢

    Uh… I just… don’t know what to say.
    Well the artstyle looks good and the concept it’s not bad I guess but…

  • Hollowkoopa

    I get a EVE Online feel from this.

    • Godmars

      Just by rep alone I seriously doubt, that besides being set in space, this is anything like EVE Online.

      Possibly closer to Master of Orion but still lower on the scale.

    • Suicunesol

      I get more of an Ogame feel, actually. If you know what that is. Star Galaxy might even be a clone. :o

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    All of my “meh”

  • Shaun Huseman

    Id like to see some gameplay before judging it. But browser games dont exactly look the best.

  • $24431191

    ahhhhh……. of course it’s not something anybody wants.

  • http://radiantloki.blogspot.com/ Mark Dinh

    Wow, just wow… I don’t even know what to say … >->>

  • fayt255

    This still seems interesting though. They need a soundtrack CD you can buy I really like the music.

  • Elvick

    They seriously need to stop making a big deal about stuff like this.

    I mean, it could be good at what it is, but just announce the thing flat out. Don’t tease it. Leads to disappointment when it’s something else entirely.

  • http://twitter.com/VXLbeast VXLbeast

    I read until the word “cards”.

    • Don

      thought it was gonna some sort of a RTS game ala starcraft then i read “cards” and went straight to the comments lol

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

    F/SN Archer anyone??

  • TheDarkEmpress

    Funny how someone sarcastically called this one last week and it turns out to be true……Jesus Square, it’s like you’re TRYING to kill yourself.

  • MasterHiei

    What a disappointment.

    Well, it’s Square Enix after all, it was foolish to put my hopes on them to begin with.

  • sakusakusakura_nyo

    BOOOO! Square Enix betrays their fans again!

  • http://Gematsu.com/ Bruno Silva

    Well, in a way, I’m glad this wasn’t a teaser for Star Ocean. When (if ;_;) Star Ocean gets a sequel, I’d want it to be a console or handheld game, and not a browser/social game.

    Nothing against the latter, just a matter of personal preference and personal expectations.

    That being said, I have no interest in this game, but I do like the character designs. And this is most likely the very last time I’ll be talking about this game, now that we all know what it is.

  • Yuriangels

    *sigh* here we go again.

  • Kai2591

    We are not amused.

  • Nitraion

    The trailers don’t tell anything… :?

  • http://jaydesummers.wordpress.com/ Jay

    And nobody was surprised.

  • Göran Isacson

    Huh. So it’s a J-version of EVE Online? Only probably not as advanced what with being a browser game and all?

    Sounds decently legit, I guess. If that’s your interest. Which it is not in my case.

  • ZEROthefirst

    The guy on the right in the top pic reminds me of Malik from Tales of Graces.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Annie-Greaves/100000763503945 Annie Greaves

    oh waaaah T_T

  • Zenthos

    Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, and now this. Subscriptions galore!

  • Callonia

    Fantastic Art, boring battle graphics. Sigh.

  • http://twitter.com/DarrylThinks The Letter D

    I know my friend is sorely disappointed that it’s not Star Ocean related. And not to mention, it’s a browser based title. Oh Square and their shenanigans.

  • Vulpis

    …Why does that one faction have a Christmas tree as it’s logo, and why does it’s token furry rep have an ornament sticking out of his head?

  • Carter Rosen

    and square enix disappoints yet again.
