Betawatch: Starbase enters early access alpha

Starbase is a starbase simulator developed by a small team of indie game developers. The game is a stand alone project consisting of a single player campaign and a multiplayer skirmish mode. The aim of the game is to construct a starbase. The player must research, build and expand their starbase. The player must also build weapons and outposts that can be sent to fight other players.

Betawatch: Starbase is a sci-fi strategy game in space. It’s a mix between the engine of a realtime strategy game and the mechanics of a board game. In Betawatch: Starbase the player is in charge of a space station. The station houses research facilities and advanced shipyards. Inside the station there are two important components: the central computer and the gear. The central computer is the main brain of the station. It is responsible for all the tasks of the station and it is connected to the gear that manage all the resources. The gear is there to manage those resources. The gear allows the player to schedule tasks, upgrade the station or buy new modules to research.


At long last, it’s happened! Starbase has moved into early access, allowing everyone to… well, access the game. But early. Look, we’ve had kind of a blur of various games testing or moving test phases or even launching lately; you kind of run out of things to say at some point. Hey, that’s a good problem to have.

Here are some more excellent issues to have as an example:

Oh, wait, that last one wasn’t a positive issue; it was just an issue. What the hell, whatever. Let’s set it aside and go on to the list below, shall we? That’s not a problem, however if there are any issues, such as anything slipping into a new test phase without our knowledge, you may let us know in the comments.


We consider an MMO to be in open testing if it offers free, public signups and will wipe servers before launch. If an MMO is in closed testing, it means it’s in a secret testing phase that can’t be accessible by the general public; it’s also typically under NDA. We will include early access and crowdfunded MMOs that pass our standards. We do not include so-called “open beta” soft-launch MMOs with cash shops, no indication of a western launch, or little interest for our readers; we also do not list expansions, with a few exceptions.

betwatchavYes, MMO players, you, too, may engage in unpaid quality-control labor known as game testing! Every week, check out Massively Overpowered’s Betawatch for a list of MMOs that are still in the works, even if they seem to have taken up permanent residence in the shed known as early access.
