As a reminder, Stars in Shadow promises a distinctive hand-drawn, comic-style art and a rich, detailed backstory.
Other features include:
- Deep, turn-based tactical starship combat, with quality-of-life features like multi-ship commands to keep large-scale engagements moving quickly
- Seven playable factions, each with unique gameplay elements. Play as one of the young races, just reaching out into the stars, or one of the old races: survivors of a war long past who bear ancient grudges
- A robust diplomacy system
- Empire management that focuses on high-level decision-making
- Many planet types, with their own lore and backstory
