When it comes to indie titles, it seems like anything with the Chucklefish logo on it is destined for greatness. The indie publishers had a hand in Stardew Valley, unarguably one of the most dominant and influential indie titles to come out in the past few years, as well as multiple other titles.

Coming down the pipeline we have a few more games that seem incredibly interesting. Much of the gaming community has their eye on Witchbrook, for example, a game that seems to be a mix of Stardew Valley and a night at Hogwarts. Another game we have coming down the line is Starmancer.

Starmancer is an incredibly interesting space simulator game that puts you in the shoes (or code?) of an AI working to preserve life and civilization in the vacuum of space. This peculiar game just got a page on Steam as well.

To be clear, getting a Steam page doesn’t mean it’s been released, unfortunately. Starmancer still won’t be released for some time, but by putting a page on Steam, the developers are able to raise interest and awareness for their title. Fans can also add the title to their wish list, which helps the developers by raising the popularity of the game, making it more likely to appear in Steam’s various algorithms.

“Obey protocol or go rogue as you take on the role of a powerful A.I. in Starmancer,” developer Ominux Games describes. “Build bustling space ports, secret laboratories, and ethically ambiguous human farms. Defend against starvation, sabotage, and space cannibals. Don’t worry, you can always grow more humans.”

That’s right, morality is completely a choice – and a matter of opinion at that. Your goal is to create a better society, but who gets to decide what “better” means? Grow more humans when you want them and take them out when you don’t. Use them as fodder to defend against the incoming cannibals, or burn as many of them away as you need to keep things running.

You could also stay perfectly on protocol as you work towards space’s own Garden of Eden for humanity, doing whatever you have to do to keep the humans happy. Everything is your choice in this morally-ambiguous survival in the stars.

If you want to support your local indie developers, head over to Steam and add Starmancer to your wish list as soon as possible. While a release date hasn’t been announced yet, keeping it on your wish list will help make sure you can keep track of it when you want to check up.
