This Is Not A Review: Spacebase Startopia

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.

The subject of this installment: Spacebase Startopia available on PS4, PS4, XBX/S, XBO, Switch and PC, developed by Realmforge Studios and published by Kalypso
