ArkCo News - 3/17/15: PAX, Unity 5 and More!

Hey ArkCoNauts!

Been awhile since we did a newsletter and caught you all up on what's been going on, and what's still to come. We've kept the patches coming, and the majority of our focus as been in that direction, and rather than just news, we wanted to be cranking out patch notes. With the latest patches coming to opt-in, players may be wondering what's going on, so I felt it was time to sit down and give you guys a lot more insight into the current development of the game. So, what IS going on with the game, you ask? Last weekend, the team headed out to PAX to show Edge of Space, and it was awesome. We got more media showing up, and more player engagement than any of our previous PAX showings. Overall, everyone enjoyed the game, and we were able to pinpoint a few of the things that were making hitches in the early game experience. Here are a couple of great articles from some of those who played at PAX:

http://armedgamer.com/2015/03/edge-of-space-more-than-terraria-in-space/

www.gamecrate.com/edge-of-space-interview-pax-east-2015/ (http://www.gamecrate.com/edge-of-space-interview-pax-east-2015/)


On the development side of things, we've turned an eagle eye to the beginning of the game. We watched players at PAX, and have heard the community talk about the beginning of the game being slow and difficult to get into. With that feedback in mind, we're going back and looking at ways to remove grind, and to smooth and enhance the beginning part of the game. To that end, we have eliminated the extra step of having to craft data to advance research. Instead of being mandatory, it will just become an option for those who are crafting it to share. You can now directly spend your research points, which we agree with the community will bring a much more simplified and streamlined feeling to the research system. It should definitely cut down on wasted materials, especially for those playing single player or not interested in leveling friends.

Along with this, we are exploring ways to bring more objectives into the early game, to help shed that feeling of bewilderment after first spawning on the planet. Edge of Space is, and always will remain a game where the player is writing their own story, and has the option to play in the style that best suits them. While embracing that fundamental freedom in the game experience though, we want to incorporate new ways to give the player something to do. Looking for a material that's rare and hard to find? The goal is to keep you busy while you search, so that even while carrying out routine tasks you can accomplish more in that time. Our thoughts are that we can bring in more ways for a player to earn those materials as well, so that random chance isn't your only chance.

Coming back to the big question, why the opt-in, there is good news on that front. Edge of Space is making the change to Unity 5! During the upgrade, we've chosen to keep updates on the opt-in branch, to allow us to transition the main branch first. Once that's done we'll bring over the new updates to the main branch, and continue to smooth them out.


Still not enough going on? Don't worry, we've got you covered! The wheels are turning and we're planning something fun for a Spring event. We won't spoil too much just yet on what we're up to this time around, but keep your eyes on the social sites for news as we get closer. Thanks as always for reading, and we'll see you next time for ArkCo News!

We’ve survived another PAX, and it was a great one! Now that we’re home, we’re rounding up the bug reports on the opt-in and getting to work on the fixes for those. For the time being, this will remain on the opt-in test, but for the most awesome reason: UNITY 5! We’ll be going in depth in a newsletter soon on what that means for Edge of Space, and what our current plans are. In the meantime, enjoy a fresh helping of squashed bugs!


Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where certain placeables were not functional
  • Fixed an issue where creatures would spawn in crafted bases
  • Fixed an issue where science xp was not being spent in MP mode


Changes

  • Tutorial tasks no longer need to be completed, they will autocomplete
  • Phase shotgun 1 and 2 increased base damage
  • Pushed zombie spawn during the night a little bit lower
  • The tutorial tasks have been updated
  • Right-click no longer puts items in chests in the tutorial

Acerca deste jogo

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 (Launch Version)

  • 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
  • Cooperative Exploration – Engrossing gameplay, built from the ground up, to support multiplayer focusing on cooperative exploration and combat with team-based tactics.
  • Advanced Crafting System - Using the power of science, craft advanced technology for weapons, gear and base constructions from basic resources
  • Loads of Armor – Ranging from stat boosting battle armor to quirky vanity costumes, craft armor to survive the changing environmental conditions and specialize in different aspects of mining, exploration, and combat.
  • Weapons – Create a wide-variety of dynamically generated weapons ranging from guided rocket launchers to Experimental Gauss Rifles and discover new advanced weaponry to expand your arsenal.
  • 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.
  • Pets – Create and collect pets that assist you on your epic exploration of space by granting defensive, offensive, or exploration perks.
  • Anomalies - Random world events both dangerous and helpful
  • Vehicles - Craft items from hover boards to massive mechs to safely explore the dangerous world
  • Terraforming - Conquer space by turning the land into a livable habitat
  • Continual Support – Regular post-launch updates will bring fresh new content

(Many features listed above are currently in the game but since we are still in Early Access some will be added in the future. Vehicles and Terraforming are among them.)

Almost missed this title due to mixed reviews. Glad I didn't! Please do not let mixed reviews scare you off like almost happened to me. I will tell you why. Most negatives were probably from the early stages of this game and from people who expected a full game during early access.

Pro's:
-Excellent grahics for the genre.
-Good sound effects.
-Many innovations, like vertical progression and unlocking new craftables with Science points.
(at first I hated the science points thing but grew to love it once I understood how it worked)
-Darn good tutorial for an Early Access game.
-Very few bugs so far.
-Very involved and helpful devs and community.

Con's:
-Even though it has a good tutorial I found it still hard to know what to do next after start and what path to take to progress into biomes below after start.

So there you have it, I think the label 'mixed reviews' is very misplaced. I can't stress enough that this is a solid and good game with friendly devs.

10/10 Would commit suicide to bring my stuff home again.

Edge of Space pits you against the environment as you progress downward as opposed to side by side. You gradualy start to encounter bigger badder challanges that not only require you to be well prepaired equiptment wise, but it also requires you to bring more advanced tools.

The versatility in Edge of Space's tools seperates it from alot of other sandbox games because you can choose to have a longer, less powerful range, or a shorter more powerful version of your tools. This gives you options to work with.

The armor sets also differnt from other games in the aspect that they are not necissarly combat focused. Instead of Ranger, Mage, Melee, you get Builder, Explorer, Fighter. Each armor catering to a particular task rather then a weapon role. All items are created from crafting data of a specific sub catagory in crafting, so you can specialize and focus on one area at a time rather then pooling all of your science (aka accumulative xp pool ) into everything at once.

Edge of Space also offers a challange factor with it's dungeons. It disables things like jet packs and grappling hooks and building so that you can not cheese the boses for easy wins.

This should give you an idea of how the game plays out and how it differs from other games of it's kind.

*Feb 25, 2015*

Development Stage: Early Access

Early Access Compitence Rateing: 9/10 - Things were bumpy at first for what ever reasons, but things turned around quickly. The developers never gave up despite the road bumps and updates are comeing in frequantly. Edge of Space is a very good example of Early Access done right.

Exploration: 9/10 - The environment can be dangerous, there's danger around every corner and you need to prepair accordingly. There are events and outposts that keep you busy and though it is currently in an infant state of things, I can see how the world will gradualy become more and more full as time advances.

Crafting: 8/10 - Crafting is based on xp and tends to get a bit grindy, but it's quite rewarding once you unlock new things.

Game Controls: 8/10 - Some obvious bugs are still around, but it will not hinder the game experince too much. Jetpacks can also go wildly out of control and some of the grapple mechanics can send your character bouncing about.

Game Play: 8/10 - I suspect the game will greatly improve with time, but at the moment there is a limited amount of content to keep you busy, so the game becomes a bit grindy. Again, I suspect this will change greatly in the near future.

Music: 9/10 - The music is very fitting for the game and quite immersive.

Graphics: 8/10 - It's gritty and retro, but also very fitting for the game style. Some of the texture look weird, but it's a fair representation of what it is conveying.

Newbie Friendly: 7/10 - Newbies will catch on eventualy, but the learning curve is a bit harsh. But in a good way. It is suggested to have some platformer experince before attempting Edge of Space. Newer generation gamers may have trouble where as older generation gamers will have little trouble with landing platforms and timeing jumps.

Community and Moderators: 9/10 - Very few fights, healthy interactions. Strong communication, very good staff members. Moderation is fair and efficent and well handled.

Developers: 10/10 - Very approachable developers, they are always happy to answer questions. They have sense of humor and are reasonable people. Very good company to invest your faith and funds into.

TL:DR Version:

Is it worth it: YES!

First off let me appologize, I'm not the best at words and this review's probably a bit all over the place, but do yourself a favor and give it a chance.

While this game is quite underdevelopped with stuff like missing info, dev notes on a few items and unfinished content (Note all the twits posting bitter reviews. While they do have good points on some of them THIS IS FEEDBACK TO BE GIVEN FOR THE DEVELOPERS, not splattered onto the review section to give the game a bad face. They listen AMAZINGLY well to feedback.), the developers have been producing updates and status reports at a decent rate and on top of that they are highly responsive in the forums, having replied many times to my silly little posts in the past about small things. They feel like people, not faces put on for a job but at the same time remain professional, and to top it off they feel honest and seem to genuinely care about their game.

To be blunt, I see this game going places if they market it right when the game's finished, I just hope people give this game a chance and help fund it by picking up a copy while it's in early access. It's fairly priced, and as I said before the devs are a stellar example of what developers SHOULD be like, and I can honestly feel the game improving a good amount as the game goes through production with lots of polish and fine tuning, feedback from the community being taken into account, and big bugs that pop up are usually fixed very quickly. If you've played this game before and hated it, do yourself a huge favor, give it another go upon release. I might just be overly optimistic, but I have good feelings for this game, and that's saying a lot in the world of scams, lies, "bullzhitting" and greed that is the current gaming industry.

Oh, and if you're wondering why I didn't really talk about the actual game, it's because the game's changing a lot so quickly, to review it while it's doing so would be completely unfair and unreasonable. You can find some info you might be after on the storefront. Just do yourself a favor and ignore the bitter reviews for reasons I've stated already.

And another little note, they usually have a countdown INGAME for their next updates with info on the patch usually found in the forum, and while this can be off a few days for valid reasons they generally provide, it's pretty reliable.

Very slow. I recommend Starbound over this. This, the 2D adventure/survival is great, with stuff like Terraria and Starbound, but those both bring new stuff to the table. This really doesnt have any groundbreaking concepts.

this game is getting a LOT of negative reviews and I see some same complaints-- No tutorial (There wasnt, there is now) - cant skip the tutorial (You obviously DIDNT read anything at all, did you?) - There's no content updates blah blah or theres not enough of X in the game yet... well I have been involved in a TON of early access projects (DayZ pops into my mind when people say "No content") and I would personally want them to re-hash and re-do gameplay mechanics before adding content, and this one has gone from having nothing but tiles, to having a power grid, to having a control system (Machines need command nodes to run) and more, and more content and bosses... went from having nothing but a few penguins with rocket launchers to terraria crossover bosses and random events... it is still early and the team may not be as large as you would like, but development is constant, and consistent-- meaning they arent working on other projects with early access money from this, at least not to the point its affecting development. Most complaints are people "I cant find ores" those people are used to easier games (Like terraria, which is fun, but face it, not hard at all) this game forces you to completely upgrade before moving much further through an exposure system (Go too low, die from the planets core radiation. makes perfect sense, but most people cry) and extremely tough enemies that dont take much damage from the starter guns.

All in all I am excited to see where they go with the rest of this project. As 2 out of 5 biomes are done as of this review, and countless systems still planned, and some tweaks to existing ones. Amazing progression system if you arent a crybaby.

TL:DR: Most reviews on this game are because people are stupid and don't read, this game is solid, and has constant updates and shows not just promise, but progress.... suppourt it if you liked terraria but it was too easy

EoS is still a buggy and slow paced game. No real wiki to find out your information from, you gotta learn it all by yourself. It'll take you a couple of hours before you really get started on how to play the game. Some of you may be bored after the first couple of hours, because you simply have no idea what you are doing.

BUT for those of you who can get past the first 5-8 hours of playing this game, it may become interesting to explore, to dig to find new stuff, head towards dungeons. With that said, how well you fare in this game is how much patience you really have. You have to read stuff in the codex to learn how things works, you may never get past some parts without help from the community. Its grind intensive, one thing that I don't really like. You have to kill, and kill, and kill, like in an MMORPG, just keep killing, and leveling, want to build more stuff? Kill more, get more science points, convert it to research data.

Eventually it gets so absurd that you need so much research datas and at the same time, you reach a point where you get alot of science points that you either have to find a couple of upgrade platforms and extend your Science maximum capacity OR you just kill and stop, convert it to datas, every few minutes.

If you want to go by the first method to make things a little easier, dig more! The upgrade platforms which are so beneficial and essential but of course, it is so god damn rare. For those of you who have played terraria, it is pretty much like the Crystal Hearts but rarer. Its interesting but also tiring because of how big the world is, You have to explore and explore and explore to find these upgrade platforms. There is simply no way you can chance upon this without luck since there is no navigation help or map for you to refer to.

So do I recommend this game? Sure, I do, but overall I give this game about a 6.5/10. Keep in mind that this is still in early access.

It has a massive content, but not enough help support, things are still very buggy, but it is not unplayable, the designs is pretty and simple, but a little unappealing. The developers are helpful, they respond alot, the game is updated very frequently,

My unsatisfaction with this game is due to its grinding factor of kill dig kill dig, find stuff, continue killing, build stuff, and finally, just finally, you can get to the first dungeon and die more, realising you need better armor, and to get better armor, you need better buildings, so you kill and dig more, to build these buildings and armor, but it is way too slow, so you need to build better tools, but for better tools, you also need to kill and dig more. THEN you also need better weapons, and you know where I'm going with this.

*edit*
So why am I still playing it? Well to be honest, it is because of the developers. They want to improve this game, so I close an eye while writing this review and at the same time, try to tell you guys about the truth of this game. It is not exciting, half of the game is not completed yet, but hearing what the developers have to say, I'm sure that EoS will be much more fun when it is launched. So i'll give you a couple of reasons to get this game and a couple not to.

Get this game if you
- are patient and want to see the game grow, contribute to the community and give feedback to the developers.
- are willing to fork out money to support the development of EoS.
- are willing to take the risk and pay a cheaper price for early access, with hopes that this game does not end up like other Early access games.
- You are a rich ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, so why the hell not?

Do not get this game (now) if you
- Just want another Terraria-like game to fill your time. (Seriously, if that's your motive, don't get it yet)
- Want to get the full experience right now, and you are unable to tolerate buggy, and slow-paced game. (In this case, you should try Starbound for a better experience)
- Want a multiplayer game for you and your friends to play with. (Yes, reasons for this is because it is likely that either 1 of you are gonna get bored, and when you buy this for multiplayer, you are gonna play this for multiplayer, and end up not playing it when your friends stop.)

*Update*
While this game is not terrible, those of you who do not have that much patience, did not have an enjoyable experience or with expectations that are not met, but at the same time would like a concept similar to EOS, maybe "Signs Of Life" would appeal to you more.

This game is one of the good examples for Early Acces. The Dev team is really nice and are very present and working with the community. Constant patches and addet content keeps making the game get better and better and i don´t regret buying into this at all. The art style, music and ambient is just awesome and everyone who like this genre should give it a try.
Even tho it got Terraria content in it it is by far not a clone and got it´s own unique feeling to it as it is more focused on action and plays more like a metroid game when it comes to progression and gunplay.
A big thumbs up from me .

Edge of space is a very ambitious game with current plot holes and some minor glitches. The game however its self has a unique array of weapons, functions, game mechanics overall are interesting. At first I thought this would be somewhat like terraria but I was quickly mistaken. It only looks somewhat similar. Probably a concept overlap in overal cosmetics but other than that it all functions quite seperately. It revolves around you and your character who crash lands on archoa. You need to terraform the planet to be suitable, build a base, etc. Terraforming is not available yet unless they consider base building terraforming but that's unlikely. Overall, I don't have too much to say but this game is great. I'm hooked and it's absolutely a blast with friends! They come out with new content regularly, and while some times things break, other times you get cool things as of now like a gun that glitched past the clip capacity to have 65 ammo. Neat stuff all around. If you like the idea, please support the game and buy it! I pirated it first, and was happy with it until I ran out of cyro rods. That killed it, but then I bought the real deal and ho boy! 10/10, as of right now, I suggest it! The deal maker was cyro rods dropping from jellyfish for me and the fire fox. It takes a bit of brains to figure things out on your own, but do not give up arconauts, it is a journey to see through to the end!

Checklist:
Story: Work in progress but check.
Weapons: Check! (wish they had bigger hit boxes, though you get used to it.)
Monsters: I hate you. (check)
Mechanics: Colorful. Lots of stuff to do and figure out. Check.
Difficulty: Hell yeah! Check!
Variety: I'm not sure. Check in my book.
Fun: Check!
Many moar checks, including bugs. Oh well!

BUY.
THIS.
GAME.

TL;DR: It's an early access game with a strong foundation that needs more content, a little tweaking, and polish.

This game just had a pretty big update from what I understand. Look at your review dates, if it is dated before Nov 24th, then it's not reflecting the game in it's current state.

I'll have a more detailed review once I log more hours.
First few hours:

Cons:
-Tutorial is a little frusterating, got confused at one point and thought my progress was blocked. (Turns out I was trying to craft the wrong thing during it)
-Progress is not entirely intuitive yet.
-The gear grind is a little on the slow side.

Pro's:
-Stong basic mechanics.
-The one mini-boss fight I've been in was terrifying and fun. Tons of little critters coming after me in a cave putting out my temporary lights as they advanced. (If I didn't have the regen pack by then I probably would have died)
-Fun building mechanics (if not entirely intuitive yet)
-I made a jetpack out of dirt.

Something I'm unsure about but rates mention:
-Science xp, and these data modules: Maybe it's just because Starforge did something similar (and they did it poorly), but I'm wary of having to unlock recipies with xp and blueprints. This system could either make or break the gear progression in the game and needs to be handled well.

So, should you pick up this game now? I'm leaning towards yes. The Dev's seem dedicated and attentive to their players, and the game has a strong foundation.

Terraria is better, but only because its a fully developed game. This one is still in progress, but is incredibly addictive, even more so than Terraria in my opinion. They've implemented a skilling system, where you repurpose dirt and mud etc into experience data which you then use to level your skills up in order to unlock new weapons and armor. Its a little complicated for those who just came from the simplicity of Terraria, but you catch on pretty quick.

Its a little unbalanced, but what can you expect from an early access game? I say if you liked Terraria, you'll probably like Edge of Space a lot too, but you'll want it when it comes out fully. The world's a little too big, with not enough to do, and the Arctic Biome is really dangerous, but again, I'm expecting these things will be expanded on eventually.

Final verdict: Currently not nearly as deep and immersive as Terraria but has INCREDIBLE potential to become an even better game.

9.5/10 cant wait for the released game

Hello readers!

Let's get the obvious out the of the way: it's in Beta. There will be changes. There are glitches. Boo-hoo.

Pros:

It's engaging, especially compared to the garden variety of miners and crafters out there. There is a multifaceted approach to crafting that requires both raw materials and the know-how of a specific skill to be able to craft. Science Points (SP) are awarded for everything - killing baddies to laser-punching dirt - and are used for increasing skill levels in broad categories such as Base Construction (BUILD BIGGER CHESTS!) to Utilities (MAKE STRONGER LAZERBEAM!) to Consumables (WHO NEEDS CRYORODS ANYWAYS?). Once your skill level is increased you can then craft a better item for yourself! Enough on crafting..

Enemies! They're gorgeous! They're varied! They kick my ♥♥♥ =( They have weaknesses that make it an engaging combat game beyond point-and-click. Angles of attack, parabolic arcs, and reload times all need to be taken into consideration when fighting the local floral and fauna. Build stronger weapons! Fight bigger baddies! Get more SP! Build Data from SP into building better weapons! Rinse - repeat - pwn.

Dungeons! Just when you think you've found it all - suddenly you're platforming through a mega-dungeon fighting off mechanical brains with well-timed plasma rifle shots! Loot Loot Loot Loot.

More dungeons! Did you know penguins like pre-marital sex and Daft Punk? Play this game to find out why. They're promiscious. And deadly. More Loot! Why do I need all these brain stems? SCIENCE!

Cons:

It's in Beta. Lighting sometimes ♥♥♥♥♥ itself - sometimes there's no shadows at all! Hitboxes have been off before - but appear to have been patched. Nothing gamebreaking that I've run into with my 38 hours. 1/2 the world isn't filled in yet - but I'm sure it will be amazing when it is! There's more than enough to explore as is.

The only gripe I have is lack of map - but it is a planned implementation, and I'm sure will be here soon. It's a large and confusing world - even with teleportation available you still get your ♥♥♥ lost.


OVERALL GRADE:

WOULD BUY AGAIN / 10

I give it a solid 8.5 - with the possibility to be a 9 or even 10 when all the bugs are worked out and content is added. The time I have put into it should say enough. As a fan of Minecraft and Terraria - both Vanilla - the Edge of Space more than meets my expectations and is my current crack.

In the first part of my review, I will point out, on the spot, that THIS IS NOT TERRARIA, nor will it ever be. Just as Starbound was seen as another rip-off of a loved game before it became famous, it's the same here. Terraria is less loved by the developers, and Starbound even moreso. The developers here are happy to patch any bug that would be found, in addition to being friendly and helpful, were someone to get lost or to ask for help.

The soundtrack in the game actually DOES give it the feel of Minecraft, what with the lonely venture and all, but it's not. The game [also] has a unique take on the 'RPG' aspect, with it not being the typical 'grind for hours and hours to get to the max'. No. You instead would get SP (Science Points) which are used for the creation of plenty of things, such as items to increase your skill in a specific area. SP is gained by killing things (as per RPG-like game) as well as destroying things, be it trees or some odd plant you've never seen before, though the amount varies.

Also, you remember in Terraria where you could feel safe at night, in your little cardboard underpants alongside your wooden sword? Not here. Go ahead; Try to survive the night in your first, second, or third armourset. You'll never live to see the sun! Speaking of 'living', it also has a reason NOT to die. You crash-land on some planet, as the lore goes, then you go on to set your small CryoPod up. Note, though, that even though said CryoPod keeps you from death for ten times, it doesn't mean you can waste them. It's quite a journey to craft up a small, cryogenic tube you slot into said CryoPod, which gives you one extra 'life', so-to-speak.

Of course, who could forget the tutorial? It's relatively in-depth, and it explains all you need to know to not die horribly the first time you set foot into the world. Now, with all these good things, what are the downsides? Well, the first, and probably most notable, is that the game is in Early Access/Beta, and has a plethora of features not-yet implimented (such as mercy invincibility after getting struck, which isn't as bad as you think, but can be kind of annoying), but even with that, it's still moving forward at a great pace, and, as I point out, it gets almost any and every bug patched up when said bug is first found.

Love this art style for sure and how helpful and friendly the dev team is. I play this game solo and really don't have any plans to play MP.

I do enjoy the idea that all the fighting (for now) is with guns rather than melee. It is hard to get used to because enemies are smaller and fast but you get better over time.

The game itself has just had a UI overhaul and progression is being changed up right now. I have no fear that this game will turn out to be bad in any way. The team listens to us and makes great decisions on their own as well.

I have been part of some rough early access games (Warz :( , The Stomping Land :(( and Starbound :-\ ) so I have had my share of ups and downs. Edge of Space has kept me even, while I want the game to be done I am not demanding them. I know they are working on everything and it will be great no matter what.

I originally came to this game because Starbound was updated and it killed a connection to a mod that made the game fun. (survivalist mod) Obviously starbound is so easy, no challenge at all. This game is actually much harder and makes you feel the need to be careful and play safe at times.
Give Edge of Space a try some time or just keep it in mind and watch for updates!

Finished playing Terraria with a friend and needed a similar game to play. With Gaben's infinite knowledge, steam recommended this game. After looking around and reading reviews for a few days I can honestly say I do not regret buying this a bit. Game felt grindy but with the new system being implemented, that's going to change completely. The devs are active and actually pay attention to people's positive AND negative reviews and react positively to both (Unlike starbound...). The reviews on the developers played a huge part in my purchase and I'll be buying a copy for my friend in the near future (aka the steam sale). Couldn't recommend enough.

I've invested in one or two early access games but what I like about Edge Of Space is the fact that they frequently update the game. To me that's a plus and the Devs seem to be dedicated and involved. Alot of people may be unhappy because they want the full game immediately but I find the pace is good so far. From the little time I've spent on it the game has a great deal of potential to find its own niche among titles like Terraria or Starbound.

Pretty cool game, little more confusing than Starbound when I get into it for the first time but I feel like the more confusing a game is the more fun it will be later on depending on the game type. It is more similar to Starbound than it it to Terraria if anything, I didn't get too far into the game so I can't say if it is much like Terraria at all.

Definetly recommended to get, it's still a bit unstable, I can see that, but the game has a lot of potential, and a couple of minutes can make you more endorsed and stuck in with the game and try to figure out what to do next, and what the mechcanics are and how it works.

I hope that the game is still under development, it could become great.
Right now the start of the game feels very slow and repetitive. I have been playing for 4 hours now and i do not have the feeling that i accomplished something.
