While 2K Games' president thinks that strategy games just aren't very trendy these days and that all the rage surrounds the FPS genre (even though technically all the rage basically just surrounds Call of Duty) there are some developers out there who are willing to evolve the strategy genre as they see fit, and one of those developers happens to be Crypstone Games.
They recently announced that their single-player RTS, Star Prospector, is currently available right now for digital download on PC via GameStop's Impulse digital distribution service.
Mark McGrevy, Founder of Cryptstone Games commented in the press release, saying...
"Star Prospector was designed with single-player in mind from the start. There are many great multiplayer RTS games available, but I also enjoy single player games and I wanted to create an RTS that incorporated my favourite features from RPG games like loot drops, inventory, experience, and skill points, to create something unique."
Players will take control of a single miner, constructor and combat prospector as he ventures across the galaxy, salvaging resources from hostile planets all while trying to make a buck or two. The game's highlight resides in the 100 randomly generated missions, which are bound to keep gamers busy for quite some time.
