is a space tycoon sim for Windows that developer Preon Studio

In Solar Baron’s world of
dwindling resources, the government has privatized the stagnant global space
agency in the desperate hope that profit-driven corporations can find a way to

of one such company, players will traverse the solar system and deliver what

Solar Baron combines the satisfaction of growing your company from nothing with
the gratification of designing spacecraft and watching them perform real-world
orbital maneuvers using realistically simulated orbital mechanics. With a range
of available engines, fuel types, and components to choose from, players must
tailor spacecraft to the needs of their missions. Players can extend their reach
by constructing orbital spaceports and surface bases at strategic locations.
Using a streamlined mission design system, players create tasks for spacecraft
to perform while the game’s intuitive system works out the mission details
automatically. This gives players time for more important things such as
deciding their overall strategy, goals, future missions, and - of course -
watching the bottom line.
Solar Baron will be arriving for aspiring space company managers on Steam Early
Access in Q3 of 2020. For additional information on Solar Baron, please visit
