Ready to Beam Up! - Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy is releasing today

By Nik Gaukroger 04 Jun 2015 0

On Monday we said that assuming there were no last minute problems, Slitherine would be releasing Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy today. Well it looks like there were no problems and the 3D tactical space battles game is now available.

We brought you our first impressions a couple of weeks ago, and an interview with the developers – Australian company Black Lab Games – earlier this week. Our review of the game is nearly ready and should be with you early next week.

Until then here is the Slitherine press release with a video and pictures. More importantly it includes the link to getting the game …



The latest Novus Kraken dreadnought has just been assembled in the shipyard. With its two Medium BW T2 Turrets and its four BW T4i Turrets, this is the brand new jewel of the human fleet. Fourteen years have passed since the first encounter with the Nautilids - some space monsters not really disposed to find diplomatic solutions when a crisis arises. Peace is fragile, so human commanders manage to convince the politicians not to lower the military budget. Soon they will realize that it was the right decision as a second huge conflict is about to begin!

Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy is now available on PC and Mac! Developer Black Lab Games focused on designing a unique sci-fi game with deep tactical mechanisms. Thanks to the simultaneous turn-based approach, not only do players have the time to think about their next moves, primary targets, and fleet positioning on the battlefield, but they also have the excitement to see the result of their choices during intense real-time sequences.

Human and Nautilid factions have very different assets and superior firepower will not be enough to seize decisive victory when the enemy benefits from more units and better positions. So daredevil commanders will have to keep a cool head if they want to see the end of the war…

A special 10% launch discount is available for a limited time period. We are also going to offer a free Steam key to anyone who bought a copy from the Matrix Games or Slitherine store, once the game is available on this digital platform!

Get more information on Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy from its official product page.

Also available on Steam.
