Today’s Niche Spotlight is Carrier Command 2, a strategy sim by Geometa and MicroProse Software.
Based on the cult hit from the ’80s, Carrier Command 2 places players in control of a futuristic aircraft carrier loaded with sophisticated weapon systems, and an arsenal of advanced combat drones. Juggle between the carrier’s various battle stations and systems as you coordinate attacks using fleets of UCAVs and amphibious assault drones.
Direct your drones from the command room, or jump into one to control it yourself. Fight to conquer a war-torn archipelago alone, or team up with friends in co-op and competitive multiplayer modes.
You can find the launch trailer below.
Carrier Command 2 is available on Windows PC and Mac (both via Steam) for $49.99 USD.

Carrier Command 2 is Strategy, Planning and Teamwork on a scale that is both engaging and manageable. True to MicroProse’s heritage, Carrier Command 2 is all about meaningful decisions.
Command and Control
Take command of a carrier and operate its systems to launch your offensive and conquer the Archipelago. Get in the shoes of an admiral and lead from the front.
Gather intel from your vehicles’ radars, pick your tools of the trade, and launch your attacks where the enemy presence is thinner. The approach you take to a situation will play a big part in the outcome.
Once you have taken an island you will need to exploit and defend the resources it provides. Ensuring these supply lines remain open will be key to your survival. Think ahead.
Make the most of different unit types synergies and create combined arms assaults to efficiently win battles. On top of that, get into each and every vehicle and take part in the action!
