Star Nomad, a sandbox tribute to classic spacesims!

G'day iOS gamers, I'm a solo indie dev from Melbourne, Australia. I've just launched a spacesim Star Nomad (App Store) I've been working on during this year.

Star Nomad (Youtube Trailer) is a top-down RPG/RTS sandbox tribute to classic spacesims of old such as Wing Commander: Privateer 1 & 2, Escape Velocity and Freelancer.


In Star Nomad, you roam free in the Wildlands Sector, immersed in a sci-fi noir setting rich in depth and humor. Be a neural data transporter, mercenary for hire, merchant trader, contraband smuggler evading the law or even a pirate making your fame/infamy & fortune.


Star Nomad is a sandbox at heart, but it's also story driven with an epic storyline that offers choices. If you love games such as Space Rangers, Space Pirates & Zombies, Eve Online, Drox Operative, Transcendence, FTL, you will probably love Star Nomad.


Features a minimlist UI with simple flight controls, everything is accomplished with one-touch, even intense dogfights & fleet combat.

Keep the price.

With a free version out there, you should get conversions from the people that want it (like me! )

Michael Brough has reported several times better success at a higher price point, his games are also fairly niche.
