As Star Supremacy
continues its star trek through beta and toward release, Barbily Games
has a few treats (but not tricks) in store for testers. After gathering feedback and bug reports from players in the beta, the dev team has whipped up a few hefty updates that should improve the game end-to-end. These updates include an improved UI, a chat system, alliances, item trading, and a tutorial.
And even though the team is mired in beta craziness, there's always time for a little Halloween fun. The Star Supremacy
devs have issued a challenge to players to find hidden GM bases. Those that do will be rewarded with special in-game items, such as pumpkin helmets and longevity tokens.
Finally, Barbily is giving away gaming headsets to a few lucky fans that have "liked" the game's Facebook page
. The drawing will happen when the page reaches 30,000 likes.
will be heading into open beta on November 15th.
