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?

Well, I saw that coming. Quite dissappointing nonetheless.
DEAR EVERY DEVELOPER/PUBLISHER EVER: Please stop doing countdowns for browser/ios games. Seriously, what a bummer.
Star Galaxy... The name sounds rather redundant, and silly. But I'm listening.
Strategy, simulation, you say? Hmmm, sounds cool. I'm interested in seeing more strategy games these days.
Give me a real video game, and I'll be there to buy it. I have no interest in shallow browser games.
Plus, there's a guy with a facial dermal piercing. Really...??
Browser based game?.......HIHAKJGASksdjkaSJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJ
JJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJ Whoa, sorry, just fell asleep on my keyboard...
The last great Star Ocean game I played was The Second Story. This does not interest me in the least.
booo i wanted it to be another star ocean
i was delusionally hoping that somehow Square got their hands on Rogue Galaxy and made a sequel. Sigh.
I was hoping for Star Ocean 5, so this news bums me out. Even if it is ultimately cool, I doubt we'll get to play it.
Square Enix countdown sites are really getting out of hand. The World Ends With You one in particular still stings.
ugh a browser game? people still play those?
zzZZzz... zzZZzz.. ..ZZZZZ rgh PHEW!.. zzZZzz..
That picture, especially the focus on that blond man, looks more like role-playing as in S&M more than anything else. In which, I'm still not excited about.
I am not too excited about Star Galaxy just yet. Maybe once I see some mechanics.
Does anyone else feel "browser based game" comes with a negative stigma?
I wonder what it would take for a browser based game to be considered on par with other computer games. Can't help but think about how Realm of the Mad God and Minecraft both got good starts as browser based games. blah blah blah
Eh, a browser game? Did not know those were still as popular. Seems like SE and Capcom continue to be letdowns.
Advance Wars in space? Sounds like a good idea to me.
The nice, simple name of "Star Galaxy"? From Square Enix? Not something ridiculous and stupid, like... I dunno... "STAR: Super Terrestrial Acti-Rotation" or something? That's great for Square Enix!
This sounds promising!
Oh. It's for the browsers? Nevermind.
I mean, browser games can be great, but it's not even going to require a Unity plugin or something? Meh.
