About Halcyon 6

A mysterious alien force is making a beeline towards Earth and this starbase is the best chance for the New Terran Federation to establish new alliances, research new technologies and otherwise figure out a way to stop the impending invasion. It tends to evoke some XCOM and FTL vibes, plus a healthy dose of humor along the way.

The most exciting features

  • Base Building: spend resources to build station facilities to enhance your production and technological capabilities and build ships to help you control more territory
  • Exploration: assign your fleets to nearby star clusters, where they can handle emerging enemy threats, do missions for alien factions, or secure bonus resources
  • Crew Management: assign crew to station facilities to greatly improve their output efficiency, or to ships where they can contribute in unique ways to combat, missions and events
  • Deep Tactical Combat: fight tactical ship or ground battles to resolve hostile events and ultimately defeat the enemy mothership.
