KICKSTARTER SUCCESS HALCYON 6: STARBASE COMMANDER – OUT NOW!

TORONTO, CANADA, SEPT 9, 2016 — Just a year and a half after their highly successful Kickstarter campaign raised $187,706 for their ambitious retro-styled space adventure strategy game, Toronto based Massive Damage Inc has launched Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander on Steam™ for PC, Mac and Linux.

Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander is a hybrid strategy role-playing game with a unique blend of base building, exploration, and a deep tactical JRPG style combat system with capital starships and their idiosyncratic officers, all captured in stunningly beautiful modernized pixel graphics.

In Halcyon 6, a mysterious alien force known only as the Chruul is carving a path of destruction towards Earth and you, as the Commander of an immensely powerful, newly discovered derelict starbase left behind by a precursor alien race, are the best chance for the New Terran Federation to stop the impending invasion.

“We came up with the idea for Halcyon 6 a few years back when we realized there was a lack of epic space adventure games like the ones we loved when we were younger. Too many new space games stuck to the traditional 4x strategy template or went too far into shooter territory. Halcyon 6 was our response to that. Our goal was to design an approachable, fun, space adventure with just the right mix of strategy and RPG gameplay. ” said Ken Seto, CEO of Massive Damage.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
