StarDrive was a SciFi real time 4X strategy game, released in April 2013. The sequel StarDrive 2 is turn based 4X strategy with real time space battles, a bit like ''VideoGame/TotalWar'' in space. The original game was popular for its fun ship combat, cool alien designs and extremely in-depth ship design system. However it was criticized for being content-light and unpolished. The second game looks to add much more content and polish, while keeping the things that made the first game great, and adding some new features such as Leaders which you can hire to govern your colonies. At its core, both games are the same: Start out with one planet and some ships, and use that to build an empire. Also: Samurai Space Bears.
