Star Control
Get it Now

Join the adventure. Save the world.


Take command of Earth’s first and only interstellar starship whose mission is to save the Earth...at any cost.

Travel to distant stars, investigate exotic new worlds, engage with alien civilizations and unravel the myriad of deep intrigue that saturates our little corner of the universe.

Explore Thousands of New Worlds


Journey through a massive universe of thousands of planets across hundreds of solar systems! Travel to different worlds to complete quests, collect resources, and encounter unusual creatures.

Some worlds you find may have active volcanoes, or be shrouded in toxic gas. Others might have dangerous sentry robots guarding hidden bases, or terrifying whirlwinds. Equip your lander with upgrades in order to survive the varied planets you’ll encounter to complete your mission.

Meet Strange New Aliens


Travel to distant stars and make friends (or foes, we're not terribly picky) with the aliens living there through unique dialogue choices and quests. There are thousands of planets just in the Scryve sector of space. Find out where potential friends and enemies are living and deal with them as you see fit.

Engage in exciting ship-on-ship combat as you take down dangerous aliens to complete your mission. Or, you can try and run away, but that's not nearly as much fun, and aliens will definitely laugh at you.

Take your battles beyond the adventure mode into multiplayer! Fleet Battles lets you face off against other players online or locally. Assemble your fleet from an assortment of provided ships (or customize your own) and get ready to rumble! Ranked play could earn you a spot on the worldwide leader boards and some bragging rights.

Secure Earth's Future


Your first mission for Star Control is to save the world from the malevolent Scryve who, for some reason, have interpreted our radio broadcasts to indicate that we are a very dangerous species that must not be allowed to fully realize its potential. There are dozens of known species in this part of the galaxy, not all of whom are the Scryve’s thralls - maybe some of them can help us...

Face down the ominous threat of the Scryve Empire and stop them from wiping Earth off the galactic map. How you accomplish your mission is entirely up to you - be a hero, or be a villain. Every decision you make may have far-reaching ramifications. The Scryve already have several ward species who may or may not help you fight back. It will be up to you to convince them to help...one way or another.

Pilot Earth's Most Powerful Starship


Star Control has spared no expense in constructing the most advanced space vessel in history. Its modular design means you can update the technology on it with modules you find, borrow or steal from others.

From shiny new hyperdrives, to a higher cargo or fuel capacity, you will be able to customize your ship to fit the way you play. Lander upgrades are also important so you can survive missions onto dangerous worlds.

Complete Your Mission


Earth is hopelessly outmatched by alien forces that are seeking to destroy us, and you are the only chance we’ve got. You can go wherever you want, but you have a mission to accomplish - by any means necessary. Help or harm - you decide.

Create Ships, Worlds, And More


The game never ends with infinite customization options. Make your own ships to use in Fleet Battles or in entirely new quests that you create. Outfit your vessels with weapons, defenses, and engines, then share them online using the Steam Workshop!

Create completely new worlds, aliens, and even dialogue in the Adventure Studio. Make, share or just play new quests, stories, and adventures.
