Released in 2001, Startopia transports the player to a galaxy far, far away in the role of a space station administrator tasked with rebuilding a network of space stations following a galaxy spanning war.
Humour - GOOD humour - is hard to get across in entertainment software, but Startopia succeeds in not only being a fun game, but a funny game.
The game is just plain beautiful. It manages to combine a really great cartoony feel with the characters and building design while keeping a very futuristic feel with some really terrific textures that look both high-tech and colorfully playful at the same time.
A game of amazing polish and humor, which translates into pure fun.
