What Is Halcyon 6?

On the edge of Terran space lies Halcyon 6, a starbase left behind by a mysterious precursor race. Your mission is to reclaim the derelict station and rebuild it. That is, until the mysterious and powerful Chruul appear, eviscerating Earth and the entire Terran Federation in one fell swoop. Halcyon 6 is the last human outpost, save for a network of small-scale mining facilities and colonies. Humanity can survive, but not until the Chruul are gone. Establish new alliances, research new Technologies and the secrets of Halcyon 6, and win the war with the Chruul, if you can. Using only the Resources you can scrounge or duplicate from Halcyon 6 and collect from surviving Terran mining facilities, it’s up to you to rebuild the entire Terran Federation. Oh, and rain fiery, wrathful vengeance upon The Chruul. That'd be great too.

Halcyon 6 is a heartfelt passion project inspired by years spent playing classic games like Star Control, Master of Orion, X-COM, Civilization and of course, rogue-like games like FTL and Starbound. The goal for Halcyon 6 is based on building core design and gameplay elements that makes a great sci fi story: characters, with distinct Icon Engineering Salvage Harpoon.png Skills and personalities, working with the community to accomplish a difficult, meaningful goal.
