This game is a fun, yet fairly short jrpg-style game with both tactical starship and unit battles, as well as fairly standard turn-based away team ground battles. If you’re a fan of jrpgs and science fiction, you should definitely check it out, as sci-fi rpgs are hard to come by. While there might be a few minor nitpicks, I’m sure these will clear up as the developers continue to hone their craft.

Definitely looking forward to future games in the series. :D

Thanks for the review, Aesica. Appreciate it!

Great game! Some issues, but I really enjoyed it.

Thanks again for playing our game, Hawk. And yep, I felt similarly for most of the issues you mentioned.  Appreciate your feedback. Most of the issues won't be in Star Shift Rebellion, fortunately. Origins was started and completed in several months; meeting deadlines. 

Glad you still thought it was a great game. Planning to redo the maze maps in Origins; also doing something about that second tactical battle!

Cheers,
