After more than five years in development, Spacetime Studios has finally released Star Legends: The Blackstar Chronicles, a massively multiplayer online science fiction game for the Android platform. Wait, there was no Android platform five years ago!
That's right, Spacetime Studios first signed on with MMO publisher NCsoft to create The Blackstar Chronicles as a PC game back in 2006. It was a very ambitious game, filled with action, adventure, space combat, all wrapped up in an incredibly distinctive art style that captured the hearts of many a massively multiplayer fan, myself included.
But things fell apart in 2008, NCsoft cancelled the project, and Spacetime bought back the intellectual property. Without the backing of a major publisher, Spacetime decided to go it alone. In February of 2011 following the success of their first mobile MMO, the fantasy-themed Pocket Legends, Spacetime announced that Blackstar would be a mobile MMO as well.
