A hybrid of 4x and real time strategy. Players are presented with a starmap and can complete story missions at certain locations to unlock more missions. Side missions are also available for extra rewards.
The player can upgrade their fleet with new ships, and can customise the weapons load out of each one. Ships can be built during the turn-based starmap phase, or in realtime during missions.
The game also features a full mission and campaign editor, and mod.io support so players can share and download new campaigns.
