Recently I received an PR email that was saying that the game Halcyon 6 is getting an update under the name “Lightspeed Edition“. The update comes as a “new game” that is given free to all the old owners. All Right! I remember checking this game ago and I somehow liked it. However it was a bit slow. I also read some Steam reviews and a lot of people complained that the game is a little bit grindy.
Well, this new Lightspeed Edition fixes exactly that! They spend some good months thinkering with all the numbers, all the variables in order to make things more engaging and entertaining.
The game managed to keep me engaged in those past couple of days and this is a big thing 🙂 I have been having problems in the past year getting into new games. I keep playing Heroes of the Storm because that allows me to do “something else” while I also play the game. With Halcyon 6 it’s a bit of the same. The game is deep enough but not to deep that requires my full concentration.
Anyway, Halcyon 6 manages to combine a couple of genres that I enjoy a lot. I enjoy management games where you have “something” and you take care of that “something” and you enhance that “something” making it better. Basically the game is an RPG game where you manage your crew, you build ships that have abilities, you have tactical combat, you level up your crew, you research stuff to improve your ships, base, crew, you take care of your outposts that give you resources … while at the same time you have a story that keeps giving you stuff to do, stuff to defend.
So give the game a try!
