What is Star control?

Posted on Thursday, September 15, 2016

Greetings folks, I am a long time fan of the Gal Civ Series and and ardent supporter of Stardock. I have also been living under a rock.

So is Star Control a 'real time strategy' like Ashes?

Is it a turn based game?

Is it a 3rd person perspective game like Pillars of Eternity or Baldur's Gate?

Is it a single player action or adventure game like Witcher3? 

I am not sure what the game is exactly so forgive me and my ignorance. I never played any versions of Star Control so I do not have any of that history or information/experience to draw on. 

Thanks much!
