Indie hit Halcyon 6 coming to iOS on Oct 19th, 2017

Hey everyone, we're happy to announce that our indie strategy RPG, Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander, is coming out on iOS on Oct 19th, 2017!

Here's our trailer:

Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander is a unique blend of base building, exploration, and a deep
tactical JRPG style combat system with capital starships and their idiosyncratic officers, all
captured in stunningly beautiful modernized pixel graphics.

The recent launch of the Lightspeed Edition on PC brought many new features to the base
game and all of those features and contents are now packed into the iOS release of Halcyon
6™.










Thanks for checking us out, we hope to see you on launch day on Oct 19th!

Internet requirement, I don't think so.

guys, it'll be a sure winner, my finger is already on the red button waiting for it!

maybe this is a stupid question, but i would like to know if it includes the original Halcyon 6 + enhancements from the Lightspeed Edition, or the original one was a totally different game?

edit > it runs on an iPhone 6S?

Hey Gwarmaxx, good questions!

The iOS version has everything including the new Lightspeed Edition features. It's 100% the same FULL game as what's on PC

And yes it runs nicely on the iPhone 6S.

Thanks!

Hi Xcxc,

No online requirement and yup it's a Premium game, launch price is $8.99.

The game is 100% the full content of what's in the current PC version of Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition.

We kept the Starbase Commander name instead because we didn't want to confuse mobile gamers since this is the first edition on mobile and it's more descriptive of the game itself.

Thanks!
Ken
