How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will simply have more of everything. More ships, ship components, progression systems and features. As well as an expansion of the currently very limited story.”

Impactful, Understandable Decisions

Choose wisely when equipping your ship with weapons and defenses, selecting power-altering modules, or determining the optimal combination of shards to use.
