Earlier today, Polish independent studio INTERMARIUM announced Space Company Simulator, a title set to exclusively launch on the PC in Q3 2019.
In Space Company Simulator, players will lead their company in a race for technological and financial domination. Players will be able to launch rockets, satellites, spaceships, and orbital stations. Inspired by Civilization IV and GameDev Tycoon, INTERMARIUM hopes that the gameplay will reflect the challenges that one would face in space exploration in a way that has not been shown in other games.
“This is [the] management sim [that] we [have] always wanted to make,” says Szymon Janus, Studio Head at INTERMARUM. “We have researched hundreds of pages of NASA reports and other aeronautical sources of information while making the game as realistic as possible [and] keeping the gameplay fun and accessible. We’re looking forward to sharing the game with all space enthusiasts out there!”
During the course of the game, players will be able to hire or train workers to become aerospace workers, research new technologies or improve existing tech, and take on new contracts and help different countries and corporations take off into space in order to help your company develop further.
Other corporations will also be involved, and players will have to manage their financial and technical sectors in order to win. For those who feel pressured by all the systems in-game, players will be able to use an in-game help system to help get off the ground and into space.
The Windows requirements are quite low, with a recommended Operating System of 64-bit Windows 8, an AMD CPU Phenom II X4 940 processor, 6 GB of RAM, and an AMD GPU Radeon HD 7870 graphics card. So, if you have pretty much any machine built in the last five years, you are good to go.
For anyone interested in Space Company Simulator, check it out on Steam.
