The strategy game Trigon Space Story launches in Early Access and challenges you to survive in a very hostile space with your spaceship crew
Trigon Space Story is a new space strategy game, with light RPG elements and a roguelike system. The game is developed by Sernur Tech and published by Gameforge. The release date is April the 28th, 2022 on Steam and the Epic Game Store.
In the Early Access release version, we can expect 4 chapters of loosely linked space stories, in which we absolve tough battles and explore the mysteries of space. Even though there is now a publisher behind it with Gameforge, the game is still more like an indie game from an indie developer studio.
Trigon Space Story will cost $19.99 or the same in €, with a 10% discount on release. As an Early Access title, it is not a completely finished game at the beginning, but it is largely bug-free and stable. In initial testing, it proved to be a challenging to hard strategy game with a lot of fine-tuning and tactical options, though some battles just aren’t well-balanced yet. Much more info will probably be available soon in a more detailed review here on ZapZockt.de and as a video on YouTube.
Trigon Space Story – Short (p)Review
Roguelike games present special challenges to players. Trigon Space Story brings this to pretty real-time strategy battles in the upgradable spaceship. Assemble your crew, upgrade their skills, upgrade your spaceship, equip it with new weapons like laser cannons, rocket launchers, plasma guns, or particle cannons and face the space challenge.
Trigon Space Story is a mix of turn-based world exploration, where you travel from system to system via hyperjump, and a real-time strategy combat system, though you can press pause via space button if necessary. We level up our crew, repair the ship, install new weapons and take care of the energy supply and distribution. Overall, I guess you can say that Trigon Space Story has similarities with FTL and also a bit with Barotrauma.
After each battle, we loot money, scrap metal as spare parts, but also sometimes weapon systems, food, power for propulsion, and sometimes even prisoners, or we discover new crew members in the prison cells of our enemies. On some space stations, we can sell surplus things and buy new expansions, crew members, or ship upgrades.
While the main story guides us through the 4 chapters, there are plenty of random events and side quests that provide us with tasks and objectives. Through a roguelike system, we unlock new ship parts, which we then have at our disposal in all further playthroughs afterward. In addition to a 4-part campaign so far, there is also a FreePlay mode, in which you can explore and conquer the universe completely without story-driven borders.
