Announcing Starlight Tactics!

Tactical Combat in the Starlight Universe

JANUARY 5, 2015 AUSTIN – Escape Hatch Entertainment, LLC today announced the development of
Starlight Tactics™, an upcoming turn-based tactical space combat game in which you assume the role of Commander in a conflict which spans our star system. Starlight Tactics is planned for iOS, Android, PS4, XBOX One, PC, Mac, Linux and PS Vita (pending Unity 4.6 or 5.0 engine support).

Starlight Tactics, players will reenter our star system a hundred years from tomorrow, where World War IV has erupted. Starlight Tactics will draw upon the rich mythology established in Starlight Inception, Escape Hatch Entertainment’s breakout game on Playstation Vita, Steam (and upcoming on Playstation 3 and Playstation 4). Starlight Inception was the first space combat game in its genre offered on the Vita.

Starlight Tactics is the new game from Garry Gaber, twenty-two year game industry veteran and formerly of LucasArts, where he acted as the project leader of Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds and Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds: Clone Campaigns.

“Tactics promises to be something new and original - a game set in the Starlight universe that takes place at the capital ship level - players will be able to control both United Star Force and Non-Aligned Nations Destroyers, Cruisers and Carriers in two full campaigns,” said Garry Gaber, the President and Chief Creative Officer of Escape Hatch Entertainment. “We have a skirmish mode as well for players who just want to quickly jump into the action.”

Added Melissa Gaber, Vice President of Escape Hatch Entertainment, “
Starlight Tactics is designed to be cross-platform from the ground up, using the Unity Game Engine. It allows us the freedom to deliver this game on multiple platforms while sharing the same codebase and much of the same art and UI elements. Both hardcore and casual gamers should find a really rich experience no matter what platform they choose to play.”
Starlight Tactics is planned for a 2015 release.
