    I salute you, my enthusiastic fellow hunam Captains and especially you, the Ur-Quan Masters team, for keeping the flame of Star Control alive.I salute you, my enthusiastic fellow hunam Captains and especially you, the Ur-Quan Masters team, for keeping the flame of Star Control alive. May the Pkunkian enlightenment guide us all home, through the dark, cold depths of space.

    Ur-Quan Masters HD is a glorious remake of Star Control 2, which was The Game back in the day. I played through the original one few times about 15 years ago. Today, even after more than two decades of enthusiastic pc gaming SC2 is still the best gaming experience I have had.

    SC2 is an unforgettable adventure among the sea of stars - a classic masterpiece. And now it's available for the more modern audience in the form of Ur-Quan Masters HD. Heed the call of the Galaxy, seek out its mysteries, but beware, for this journey will change you forever.

    This HD remake brings the outdated graphics of Star Control 2 up to modern standards without sacrificing the charm of the original. As soonThis HD remake brings the outdated graphics of Star Control 2 up to modern standards without sacrificing the charm of the original. As soon as you enter the home solar system, you can see major improvements to the planets and the stars. The planets rotate and orbit their stars. Each alien race looks more life-like.

    Some gameplay mechanics have been improved as well, such as fixing glitches in the original code, and generally making things more user-friendly (no more wasting minerals because your lander was full!).

    An incredible effort has been put into this project, and it's worthwhile to check out for fans of Star Control 2 and newcomers alike.

    One of the greatest games of all time, and my personal favorite of all time, redone into an absolutely beautiful package.

    I nearly cried
    One of the greatest games of all time, and my personal favorite of all time, redone into an absolutely beautiful package.

    I nearly cried when I discovered it, and I wish I could drive to the creators' houses and give them all the most awkward hugs humanly possible.

    Words cannot express this games greatness, and neither can they express the feeling I got when I started playing.

    Thank you. Thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

Virtually everything about theThe Ur-Quan Masters HD is an enhanced and updated port of Star Control II, an excellent, but older game. Virtually everything about the original game has been enhanced and improved in a positive way, from the graphics (which are gorgeous), down to minor gameplay tweaks. All in all, it's very worth the time spent playing it and I can't recommend it enough. Expand

    This HD remake makes the game look fantastic, of course. And not only that, it also includes improvements to the gameplay elements, making it much better experience for the new players.

    This game is much better than many full priced games, and it's free.

    This fork from the original Ur-Quan Masters is what you're supposed to play. The work on the graphic is simply amazing! The latest BetaThis fork from the original Ur-Quan Masters is what you're supposed to play. The work on the graphic is simply amazing! The latest Beta version has even introduced "authentic planet surfaces for the Sol systems planet", which is a real blast!

    Ur-Quan Masters HD makes the game as modern as it's possibly can be at this time. But the team is planning other ways to make it even better.
