Star Command Developers Launch 13-Minute Playthrough Video

It seems like the highly-anticipated Star Command has been set back for ages, but now we’re getting a look at the game in action. To boot, Warballoon Games’ project is looking quite impressive.

Although the gameplay video is missing an actual release date, the developers are hoping for late 2012.

Star Command—which will be available for iPhone, iPad, Android, Mac, and PC—starts with the creation of your captain and crew, followed by your ship. Hull types and color schemes are selectable, and you’ll launch from Earth once you’ve hired a capable collection of humans and aliens.

Each crew member can gain experience and rank up based on their assignments, although the devs note that many of them will die in explosive ship-to-ship battles.

From the game’s first mission at Mercury, combat mechanics are shown off as the crew faces off against the Antorians in two different missions, a first encounter and a follow-up brawl.

Overall, it looks very promising, and the development team promises that the finished game will “kick ass” when it’s ready. Check out the full video trailer below and see what all their hard work has produced so far.
