Looks nice at first glance. The dev is also not unknown. I'm really looking forward to a gameplay video.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

It looks a bit like Missle Command on starships. Was there an upcoming thread?

Y'all better be all over this once it's out. Empty Flask Games are seriously one of the most down to earth, coolest devs out there.

The release date was scheduled for next week and it looks like my date got modified.

Apologies if you were looking for Starship Battles on the 23rd, it will release officially only on the 30th.
