Ships Ahoy - Star Prospector

GameStop/Impulse now offers digital distribution of Star Prospector, a new space real-time strategy game with RPG elements. Space Sector has a preview with first-hand impressions of the game, and here's a bit from its description:

Star Prospector is a single-player strategy game set in a future science fiction universe. Star Prospector mixes elements of real-time strategy and role-playing game genres resulting in a totally new & unique gaming experience. The player takes on the role of a prospector, a one-person mining, salvage, and construction unit, taking on missions on remote planets across the galaxy in search of resources, technology, and adventure. At the start of the game the player will choose their own prospecting rig, an all-purpose construction, combat, and mining vehicle that will be used throughout the game. The rig can be outfitted with a large selection of weapons and various upgrade modules. In each mission the player will be transported to a unique planet. There the player must build a base, gather resources, create units, and complete assigned mission objectives earning experience and credits. At each level of experience the player will get skill points and gain access to new units, buildings, and items.

  • 100 randomly generated missions (including story centric missions) within a galaxy that is unique for every player
  • Earn experience, skill points, and credits from missions to purchase units, upgrades, and weapons
  • Battle against brutal Scavenger forces as well as a myriad of hostile creatures
  • Scan and mine ore, build wells to collect fuel, defend your base with turrets
  • Units gain combat experience and level-up within each mission and can be upgraded with shields, armor, damage, and other attributes
  • Collect loot from enemies. Use your rig to salvage wreckage for unique items
  • Outfit your Rig with weapons and modules to boost your stats
