In Star Traders 2, you'll captain your ship, hand-pick your crew, and roam freely through a sprawling galaxy with freedom of choice in your goals, morality, and career. As Star Trader Captain, you'll lead your crew across the busy shipping lanes and shifting empires of the Quadrants. The universe around you is alive and reactive – every member of your crew and every merchant, spacer, and smuggler you meet is a unique individual with personal motivations, strengths and weaknesses. The Quadrants await, and you will chart your own path in any diverse role of your choosing – become a spy, pirate, or military officer – the choices are unbounded. As the Captain, only your decisions will determine your fate – will you earn fame and riches, or infamy and a swift kick out of the airlock?
Set against the backdrop of a complex political and economic simulator, this turn-based space RPG will challenge your Captain to maintain and upgrade your ship, assemble and train a veteran crew, and ride the turbulent winds of conflict and change in the galaxy. Mixing procedural and hand-crafted content, Star Traders 2, a new and unique experience will await each of your new Captains.
Star Traders 2 RPG is the sequel to the original lo-fi, high-strategy trading RPG by Trese Brothers Games. Star Traders 2 will continue the tradition of a deep, 2D and turn-based space-opera game set by its predecessor.
