Release June 17.

That’s a Thursday, exactly two weeks after the Rust June wipe. So plenty of time to play both.

Note that as far as I know this will be a first-person 4X game with territory control, no wipes (or at least very rare wipes like once a year, which is actually better than no wipes).

I would like to get my living situation sorted in time so I can play both games. I think I should be able to swing it. This could end up being a very important game, and it’d be great to get in on the ground floor. Well, relatively speaking, because a few hundred or thousand people have participated in a bunch of tests and know the game by now.

Let us know if you’re excited for this and plan to participate. I want CULT to play even if I am not in, but I will do whatever I can to be in.


P.S. It’s hard to look for news on this game on Twitter due to Musk’s Starbase hogging all the attention.

Check out some cool news I posted in the game’s thread guys: http://culture.vg/forum/topic?p=33669#p33669

Looks like it’s gonna be a good one. These devs don’t fuck around. The game is releasing with a year and a half delay. It was initially scheduled for December 2019 iirc.

I'm absolutely in. I watched a few videos from one of their official playlists on YouTube a while back, and have been pumped to play it ever since.

I'm definitely keen. Some of their YouTube videos are really good.

Kicking myself that it is after my little upcoming break, but I really couldn't put that off any longer.

This post isn't only about the launch, it also includes a lot of analysis from me about the game, so worth reading even for people who aren't planning to play with us and are just interested in the game, or really in games as a whole. It's a very significant game.

Starbase Early Access Launch Delayed
https://store.steampowered.com/news/app ... 2563665804

New date is July 29...

So it’s good we bought Strive then. We’ll play the fuck out of that while I dig in and prepare to relaunch D&D Battlegrounds around the end of this month. Then July 1 is a Thursday and we are playing the new Rust wipe. And then hopefully August will be Starbase month. We have a busy summer.
