What's cool about it:

  • Nine primary character races, each with a unique look and function. Each inhabitant is an individual character, with unique moods, desires, personal history, and humorous character animations.
  • Fully functioning alien society, with racial animosity and friendships, crime and punishment, leisure and entertainment, and dynamic functioning economy.
  • Bio-deck with editable landscape and manageable ecosystem gives you complete control of terra-forming.


In the bloody aftermath of an intergalactic war between powerful alien races, a once-thriving network of starships, space stations, and planets are left lifeless and bear the scars of the apocalypse. As Stationmaster, it is up to you to rebuild the abandoned space stations, reunite the survivors, and bring the old Empire back to its former glory.

Populated by diverse alien species, such as the ecologically-minded and laid back Karmarama or the caring and gentle Dahenese Sirens, each space station comes to life with crime, trade, entertainment, racial tensions, and friendships. With these factors in mind, reconstruct and operate your station by managing the diverseand varied resident aliens while you also protect them against threats such as meteor showers, alien vermin infestations, roving bands of space pirates, and outbreaks of particularly virulent plagues. It’s not easy rebuilding civilization from the ruins, but the future is in your hands. Will you rise up to the challenge and build a Startopia that is ideal for everyone?

The best space station builder videogame.

Posted on 2012-09-04 07:15:42 byFFrules3's avatarFFrules3:

I've played this game since it came out and even now I just can't get enough of it. Great graphics, a lot of wonderful ideas for the builders out there, lots of jokes, you just can't summarize this game other by saying that it truly is the best successor of games like "Theme hospital" or "Theme park".
Build shops, factories, army, modify the nature on the third floor as you like,read more be a great host for the tourists, develop your empire. That's Startopia.
Come on, have a go. You know you want to build a giant donut-shape space station.

Truly one of a kind

Startopia is a must-have for anyone who's a fan of the management genre. With brilliant graphics that haven't dated all that much and and a genuinely wonderful Douglas Adams sense of humour*, this game gets so many things right and, crucially keeps things interesting. Seasoned players may find the game a bit short, but that's probably the worst thing I could say about this more For £5.99 it's a steal!
*note the "u". this is a British game through and through.

Great Sci-fi builder game !

Ah Startopia, so many winter hours inside my house building and managing my own space-station. I have so many great memories of this i don't know where to start, well first of all the graphics were awesome and if find them still absolutely beautiful to this day.
This game had a lot of stuff you could do, from zooming in like you were walking in the station yourself, to tradingread more with passing space-ships while keeping an eye on intergalactic fluctuation of goods prices and managing you garden level to grow the right plants.
There is also a lot humor in this game and I spent hours just looking at what visitors and employees spend their free time. If you played to much builder games and are looking for something unusual in the genre this game is definitely worth it.
Now i got to go back to managing my station, a shuttle full of scary parasites infected aliens has docked to my station and I have to go check if my hospital is prepared !
