This one is a bit hard to recommend just yet, because it's obviously very early on in the development. However I am going to go ahead and give it a provisional recommendation, simply based on the fact that the game already has all the hallmarks of a game that is going to be good.
There is a lot of things that this game is already doing right, that so many other space games have got wrong. for example, in this game you get your normal speed plus an afterburner key to double your speed, you get slipstream speed for flying at very high speed, and then you get the jump/warp speed, where you shoot off in to the horizon.
While I can't seem to make the ship move up or down, the handling is nice and responsive, and it looks like there will be plenty of options in this game, like stock markets, ship dealers, missions and so on.
However, the game is still missing lots of things, and because of this, it is a bit frustrating.
As the game stands at the moment, it is just a curiosity, and not even really playable, as it's just too simple and incomplete. You could in theory play it, there does not seem to be any bugs or glitches, but its just a bit boring at the moment, and just kind of makes you wish that it was ready to play, and that all the missing features were in place already.
It is basically too early on to bother playing this game for hours and hours, but it is well worth supporting to get it to a more finished state. I believe it will be good when it is finished.
For what it is worth, here are some things I would like to see in the finished game:
- More things to buy and sell, 100's and 100's more things. At the moment you get to trade allt he elemental based things, like metals and water and what not, but I would also like to see more exotic things, such as alien goods and fictional materials.
- The game could use some voices, it feels kind of empty at the moment. It could use a robot companion or control tower telling you bits of advice and making odd jokes.
- It would be nice to be able to move up and down if not yet possible, even if its just jump up or down 1 level of set space.
