Spacebase DF-9 (Preview)
As soon as I saw the title of this particular game, I began to unconsciously hum the theme to “Star Trek: Deep Space 9”. Little did I know that I was, in a sense, pinning down exactly what this game was all about. “Spacebase DF-9“, a game currently on Steam’s Early Access program for $24.99, will task you with constructing your very own space station. Like other similar sims currently out on the market, you’ll need to provide for the inhabitants, assign them jobs, mine for raw material, and more. Think “Dwarf Fortress” or “Dungeon Keeper”, but in space.
Buying into the Alpha now will guarantee you the final build once it’s released, but I’d only recommend doing so if you don’t mind the bugs and problems that come with games still under development. If you’d rather wait, then feel free to check out my gameplay videos below in the meantime. I myself am having a blast with the game so far and fully intend to come back to it again as time permits.
