Not gone, but a lot has been going on (That Ryhmes...)

Hey everyone. I know it's been quite a some time since we have posted or patched the game.

It's been a very complex ride after the release, and I will go more into it in another post.

What I wanted to get out there was that we are still alive and we have not just abandoned you, but there were logistical things that had to take priority.

In my next post I will ellaberate on that more directly, as I can not at the moment. But to say the least, please bare with us.

About This Game

Suit up as an operative of the Ark Corporation, sent to the farthest reaches of the universe in search of habitable planets to terraform. However, after the long space journey you awaken from cryosleep to find that your ship has gone way off course and is disabled near a strange new world. With no choice but to descend to the surface and figure out how to survive long enough to complete your mission, you step into the escape pod.

Along the way you’ll gather resources to craft armor, weapons, facilities, and vehicles to help you explore the world and conquer its aggressive inhabitants. Your base of operations will evolve from a few basic facilities exposed to the elements into a hardened fortress full of advanced technologies that let you accomplish amazing improvements to your equipment and alter the environment itself.

Be careful, though; almost everything down there wants to kill you, including fierce laser space sharks, artillery-toting polar bears, wickedly quick jetpack penguins, and even crazier horrors. Out on the Edge of Space, you must adapt or you die. Good luck, ArkCo Operative!

Key Features

  • Open World Exploration– Dynamically-generated 2D sandbox set in the deepest recesses of space, explore randomly generated caverns, wormhole anomalies and dive deeper into the planet to discover valuable resources and other rare phenomenon.
  • Crazy Creatures – Hordes of enemies and epic bosses ranging from Artillabears, squid pandas, jetpack space penguins, and laser space sharks; not to mention epic bosses like DJ Penguin and Omegatron

  • Advanced Crafting System - Using the power of science, craft advanced technology for weapons, gear and base constructions from basic resources

  • Research System – A new research system allows players more freedom to discover new areas of technology in exploration, combat, base building, and much more.
  • Command Center Management – Establish your central base of operation by creating the ultimate Command Center customized with defensive turrets, hangers and repair drones. Make improvements to protect yourself from the constant environmental changes like radiation storms and other anomalies.
  • PIOS (Power Input Output Systems) – A simple drag and drop tool, letting you design electrical systems as basic as powering a light or as complex as creating your own logic gates.

Great game. Stop expecting it to be like starbound. In my opinion, it is way better than starbound. It is not starbound and never will be. So if you want some starbound replica go away. Want reasons?

Lazer sharks
Skeletron Prime
Awesome style
You can't just get an endgame item by getting the materials.

Bought this way back in 2013 before starbounds release. played it twice. completely forgot about it until now.

This game didn't leave enough impact in 5+ hours for me to remember it, or ever feel like playing it again when I did just remember it.

A small girl I barely knew bought me this 2 years ago. I am surprised we began a long relationship when this game couldn't even keep me happy for more than 10 hours.

I bought this game around the time it first came up on the steam store as an EA game hoping for a terreria in space. Not much has improved since then. The game is still full of game breaking bugs and the game feels empty, barren, and unfinished. Also it turns out the the devs slapped a 1.0 on this turd called it a day and disappeared. Don't buy it.

This game has promise - is what I would have said over 2 years ago now.

When I first got it, I loved it! The aesthetics were appealing and it was like a fresh new take on terraria, one of my top played games at that time. After about 20 hours I was just screwing around in the "end game" with my buddy who I bought the game for as well (got a 2-pack because I liked the idea so much)

And.. that was it. I was going to try playing again and went over the patch history, and it was basically barren. In fact it hasn't even been touched once this year.

Fortunately about 6 months after I bought this game I purchased Starbound, haven't looked back. If you're reading this and you're interested in a fun sci-fi side scroller just go for Starbound! It has the same sandbox elements with an actual story integrated, and about 100x as many features as this game.

Thank you for your time, and RIP Edge of Space.

Can't recommend a game that has basically been abbandoned. The developers of Starbound took their sweet time but at least they finished that game. Such wasted potential.

Normally only post reviews for games I enjoy. However, this game was awful enough that I had to post something. I didn't buy this game when it released, nor when it was in early access. No, I KICKSTARTED this game. That was the promise and intrigue I had in this game. But it is just a slap in the face. Developers, which started out with constant updates, began to slowly abandon the game. The graphics, which are actually painful to look at, never got better. The crafting system is unique but just so unpolished. This game is a complete disgrace to the games it is copying.

Sigh, was really hoping some of the other Terraria in space games would pan out, but this is so inferior to Terraria or Starbound that I can't even recommend it if you're desperate.

Even if you think 'Terraria in space' is unfair for anything to live up to, the game is abandoned early access trash and not worth it even on its own merits. If it ever gets a transformative update, I'll gladly wipe this review.

In the mean time, try Craft the World instead. No, it's not the same but it's far more polished than this, and once you get the hang of not directly controlling an avatar, far more enjoyable.

This is not what I consider a full release game. Unintuitive, so many many different gui menus that all look bad. And there's still nothing to really do, you spawn, accept a quest, and then plumet repeatedly because the planet is more vertical than horizonal with floating islands everywhere. Can't figure out half the keys, or how to finish some dungeons. Oh and 2 meters to far down = fast death from radiation for some unapparent reason.
