Star Nomad: RPG RTS Sandbox

Star Nomad: RPG RTS Sandbox


***NEW PLAYERS: Please get Star Nomad Elite, it's an enhanced version with more compatibility, immersive mode, better textures and loads faster.
-
Star Nomad is a top-down 2D Space RPG RTS Sandbox. It was created as a tribute to classic sandbox spacesims of old such as Wing Commander Privateer, Escape Velocity and Freelancer. While it is a sandbox at heart, it's also heavily story driven with an epic space opera adventure for brave pilots to embark upon.
-
Roam free in a universe rich in story and humor. Be a mercenary for hire, merchant trader, contraband smuggler evading the law or even a space pirate making your fortune and fame (infamy) in the Wildlands Sector.
-
If you love games such as Space RPG, Star Traders, Space Rangers, Space Pirates & Zombies, Drox Operative, Transcendence, FTL or Star Citizen you will probably love Star Nomad.

[Reviews]
"An interesting tale with a few surprising twists that will satisfy even the most avid space opera fan." - Hardcoredroid
"It feels like a populated world and in someways borderline MMO" -IGM
-
[IMPORTANT]
Minimum specs: 720p+ screen resolution. If it crashes on start (even after memory clean), its incompatible, sorry! I'm working on the fix, please be kind with the 1 stars.
-
Startup takes ~20 seconds to load all the assets, in-game transitions are instant. CyanogenMod not supported. Runs best with a memory clean before launching.
-
[In-App Purchases]
I've endeavored to create a game that's balanced to play right through without requiring any IAPs. Trading & Missions (or smuggling & yarrr'ing!) are very rewarding & gameplay is balanced for all the available ships.
-
There are two consumable IAPs: 1) A bonus Frigate, powerful but cannot use missiles. 2) A "Credits Cheat". These are 100% optional, Star Nomad was designed foremost without IAPs negatively influencing gameplay. Any IAPs will also unlock a bonus credit reward for completing Guild missions (~10-25% bonus), as my thanks for your support!

Death in Star Nomad stings, so take care! When you die, ships beyond the Nomad are refunded for 75% of their value.

Most modules remain, except for those that cannot fit on the starter ship Nomad. This includes Drones, 2nd Turret, 2nd Missile Launcher, C-Beam Cannon etc. For those modules lost, insurance returns ~90% (in the latest update, I've changed it from 75% to 90%!) of their value in credits.

Awesome dev

Great game and great dev The game keeps you occupied for hours on end. The update is a lot harder than the original storyline, so it takes more skill than before. No more steamrolling through enemies, expect to have to evade enemy missiles and taking advantage of your point defense. The game dev keeps up on the game and really takes care of his customers. I've got to say, this game has the best tech support of anything I have seen on the market.

Fantastic game! Fantastic attentive developer! This game is huge, beautiful in motion and has the backing of a great developer who actually pay attention to your concerns. I highly recommend this game. It has a great to spin on permadeath. Instead of ending the game you start over with a portion of your resources making a death feel more like a new beginning than an end! Enjoy this action packed game and hope for a sequel! You'll be up till 4am enjoying this one!

I want this game! I know this is a great game so ill give it 5 stars instead of 1, but it really needs more device support. Even on a pretty powerful phone, it still isnt compatible at all due to resolution, but the sooner the better!
