Development[edit]

The game was designed by William David Volk.[1][3][4] Volk says that at the time he was a fan of the animated series Star Blazers and borrowed themes from the show for Conflict 2500.[5] Volk also explained that he had played the Startrek game and wanted a more complex version of that game.[6]
