"Join the Star Control Fleet! Explore the galaxy! Discover new and interesting unknown sentient star-faring races! And murder them! Wait, that's not right - ah, yes, I mean, form a giant galactic alliance to dominate and destroy the forces of evil! Yes that was what I meant." Star Control II is a space adventure game that features role-playing elements alongside 2D combat and space exploration. It was a milestone for early PC gaming and a huge influence on many modern sci-fi games such as Homeworld and the Mass Effect series. Many consider it one of the greatest computer games of all time. UQMHD Remix is a fork of The Urquan Masters HD (aka the hi-res version of the open-source version of Star Control II) which fixes some outstanding bugs, improves some of the settings/backgrounds, makes the game easier to run for newbies, and enables the use of the higher-quality remix music from the Precursors remix project.

Based on one of the greatest games of all time. While I am perfectly okay with the low-res original, the HD update along with all the various fixes, does justice to it. This game oozes personality, and is packed with great tunes, fun scenarios, and a combat system that doesn't grow old (Supermelee is a blast with friends, the logical evolution of Space War!).
