The lights are on
Its countdown site didn't quite refresh as quickly as it was supposed to, but Square Enix's announcement is here, and it's for a game called Star Galaxy.
The website is in Japanese, so there isn't much information to us English speakers, but here's some rough Google translation answering the question, "What is the game Star Galaxy?"
"Star Galaxy" is a simulation strategy game that takes place in the galaxy.Enhance the military to develop the territory of planet that is home to organize our officers were brought up to their liking, emergency, fighting to the sector.In cooperation with the friendly, self-force will lead to victory.
So, there you go. Simulation strategy in space. It will be entering beta soon and hopefully we will have more general information about the game soon.
Update: According to rumor (and our comments section) it looks like Star Galaxy is a browser game. The best evidence so far to confirm this rumor is that the system requirements list assorted Internet browsers and the latest version of Flash. Is this something you are excited about checking out?

Nah you just were not patient enough :p
I think it took 10 minutes for the website to finally work. Way to go on the Google translation. I was too lazy to do that and figured someone would eventually figure it out.
It's going to have to be really, really good to get me to play it, given that it's browser-based. It says it's a sim, so I wouldn't be surprised if it makes you wait or pay like many facebook games.
Lmao.. thanks for response Kyle!
Well, news of a browser game is underwhelming, but there certainly is a market for it. I guess if it utilizes the Unity engine, Enix could pull off something really cool.
a browser-based game. well, I dunno about that. if that game is good, might try it as well. (after beta, if entering beta test, you still need a Japan yahooo account.)
Way to go square.. Let me down again... Used to be the biggest square and Enix fanboy but in recent years its all crap, rehashes, and more crap, to the first poster, interest negative 100 for sure, another let down by square, not surprised though
Ah, I've been wondering about this. . .
Frankly, I am sick of browser based strategy games. If Square can make some really compelling gameplay and actually bring something new to the table maybe I'll give it a look. If its anything at all like Faster Than Light then I am definitedly sold.
Star Galaxy takes place in the galaxy?! I can't believe it!
I for one am really tired of all these developers that are getting lazy. Why put effort into a triple A game when we can make a browser game that makes money from ads. The gaming world is going to he'll and its stunts like this that are getting us there. I for one am glad to see developers go out of business when they lose focus. I wish someone could bring the art of gaming back. If we allow these hacks that can't think of something new to copy and paste an old title with the next number for too long it's all we'll get.
