Iceberg Interactive and Zero Sum Games have settled on a release date of 26 April for 4x title StarDrive, which will launch on Steam with a 10% discount. If you hurry, you can actually get a 17% discount (making it $25.00 USD) if you buy before 21 April. That’ll also give you access to the beta.
For an in-depth look at that beta, have a read of my preview from a few months back.
Remember: it is your duty to save the enslaved space owls (and, I guess, do all that other 4x-ey stuff like constructing new starships and colonising planets.)
