Battlestation: Harbinger hits the store August 13th. An epic space roguelike.



Commanders! I am Admiral Geezer, one of the designers of the Battlestation game series. It is my great pleasure to announce that August 13th is a very special day. We have worked hard for 9 months now and it is time to show you what we have accomplished. On this particularly magnificent day Battlestation: Harbinger takes its first flight towards your hands.



Battlestation: Harbinger is a mix of turn-based star map strategy and real-time space battles. Take command of a space ship in this epic sci-fi space adventure game, combining the game play of games like Faster Than Light (FTL), Out There and other space operas. Battlestation: Harbinger is a premium game (No In-Apps) released at a price of $3.99.

With every new game being a new story, Battlestation: Harbinger offers a new, fresh experience every time, driven by modern roguelike gameplay. All the features implemented in Battlestation: Harbinger give you many strategic options and a significant depth to the game for you to explore. Experience the intense atmosphere of adventuring deep into the space and trying to save the human race.

Screenshots from Battlestation: Harbinger


Battlestation: Harbinger features the known characters from previous Battlestation games. The main story is driven forward by dialogue.


The Battlestation: Harbinger build screen. Red slots for big cannons, blue slots for small point defense cannons and facilities. Green round slots for hangar bays. We also have a new upgrade system, where you can upgrade specific attributes of a turret, hangar bay or other facility.


The mission screen. There are different missions for you to complete. Escort friendly ships to safety, destroy enemy ships, clear out sectors and so on. The roguelike features make every game its own, so you will always have different set ups of missions in a game!


The star map screen, which you use to travel to new sectors. The mini map to the right shows what your scanners reveal from the sectors. The bigger the red triangles are, the bigger enemy ships will greet you there! You are able to choose the section within a sector to jump into, giving you more strategical choices in your attack approach.


An epic battle between Humans and Trolgars taking place. Battlestation: Harbinger has real-time battles with a pause mechanism. You will be able to change the formation of your fleet, move them individually, target all of your fleets cannons on a certain ship, order your fighter squadrons to attack and so on.

Let us know what you think and if you have any questions. We are more than happy to share more about Harbinger. If you feel this could be for you do check out the Battlestation home page: http://battlestation.fi. You can register there to be notified when August 13th is upon us!

We have a iPhone 4s as our oldest test device and the game is very playable on it. We have quite good optimizing so most devices should work well. From our own testing we can say iPhone 4s upwards commander.

Oh,I like the "epic" music from trailer, immediately sets the mood for me for such game, but hope it's not just a music for trailer and not part of game music..

The game features multiple different ships that you can buy for your fleet. These have different sets of slots for cannons and hangars. You can then customize each ship by deciding which cannon you want to equip, which hangar (The game has many different hangars as well), and which facilities (Teleport, shield boost etc.). These will give you many strategic options and nice depth to the game!
