- looks to be the quick, quick version of how we got from Star Control 1 to Star Control Classic
Greetings!Links to Star Control classic pages
Our story so far...
Long ago, Paul Reiche and Fred Ford developed an amazing game called Star Control that was published by Accolade. They formed Toys for Bob and it was well received.
A couple years later, Toys for Bob made Star Control 2 and it was an instant classic.
When it came time to do a third one, Toys for Bob opted out and Accolade contracted development to a third party to create Star Control 3 which, while not a bad game, was no where near as well received as Star Control 2 was.
Star Control 3 was released in 1996.
Accolade was eventually acquired by Infrogrames which in turn was rebranded as Atari. But no new Star Control game was forthcoming.
This Summer, Atari filed for bankruptcy and Stardock, developer and/or publisher of Galactic Civilizations, Sins of a Solar Empire and Fallen Enchantress acquired Atari's rights to Star Control with the intent to make a new Star Control game.
And that's where we are now.
We're referring to the Star Control games made in the late 80s/early 90s as Star Control classic to help differentiate them from any new Star Control games.
Finally, for all of the imaginative types out there, he is soliciting discussion on new aliens...New Star Control Alien wishlist
