What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“After a long period of closed pre-alpha the game core technology and creative aspect is finally stable. It is now providing a top-notch and very mature building experience and a fun combat gameplay. Quite a few testers already played it 100+ hours!
In order to put the game to the next level and make our way toward survival mode we need player feedback on combat and see how player creations are pushing the game balance.
Sandbox building game are by nature very player centric, having as much player input during the development is key to any voxel game and especially true to a game with as much creative freedom as Starship EVO.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Starship EVO has a tremendous potential, which means that with the help from the community were are willing to push it as much as we can! Once a stable and enjoyable survival gameplay loop is implemented we will exit the early-access phase.”

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

“Right now the game is in a Creative plus Battle state.
We are looking forward to deliver a survival mode where players will start with a small ship and slowly make their mark in the galaxy by earning cash, mining asteroid and building bigger and more powerful ship as they go. As we work toward this main vision we also want to add features wanted by the community that add value to the overall experience: more vehicle types, planetary tech and more.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Starship EVO has been played by a lot of testers and backers for a long time. After several major changes to the building experience we now have a very mature building experience. Combat is a more recent addition but already had quite a few iterations and will provide a fun and tense experience to the player. Player can expect to work immediately on their spaceship vision and bring them to combat. They can spawn or repair any ship for free.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will progressively rise as more features are added. Early Access includes the full game on release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Starship EVO started its life as a kickstarted game (under the name of Skywanderers), and has had play testers from the beginning. The dev talks a lot on youtube and github and frequently ask for feedback. Many features were added directly because of player requests or after a brainstorming with the community. This has been working very well for us and we will continue on this path!”

About This Game

PLEASE NOTE: Starship EVO is still being worked on. Content is added regularly (check the update history). At this stage you will enjoy a mature building experience and fun, engaging space battles and a vast galaxy to explore.
Soon a survival mode will be added! Multiplayer uses a Server / Client framework and require port forwarding. Please check the minimum configuration!

Starship EVO blends Space Sim with an unparalleled level of creative freedom.

Build like you never did before:

  • Stretch bricks on the fly to create unique shapes: simple yet powerful! Swap the grid size from 0.125m to 32m: blend large and small bricks to make small Starfighters or massive Dreadnoughts down to the smallest details!
  • Paint everything and apply decals to make something truly unique and personal.
  • Engineer moving contraptions with sliders, rotors, hinges or pistons. You are free to make landing gears, turrets, cockpit openings or anything you can dream off!
  • Create starships, stations, hovercrafts and even custom handheld weapons! Share your creations on the workshop or explore the amazing builds created by the community!
  • Use various systems like artificial gravity, mag-lock and shipyard. Wire everything easily and trigger logic with event gates or sensors.
  • Quality of life tools like multi-plane symmetry, copy paste and prefab export.

Explore a vast world:

  • NEW: Land on planets! Each planet is unique and procedurally generated.
  • Interstellar Travel: Use the holomap to warp to different systems and explore the galaxy.
  • Land on large ring-shaped space habitats and have fun with hovercrafts.
  • Fly seamlessly from planet to planet and visit space stations. Explore the massive planetary ring asteroids.
  • Play as a human male or female or as one of four Aliens race.

Go to war:

  • Tackle bounty missions and hunt down pirates. Use the Space Battle Editor tool and fight epic battles with several ships from your design or the workshop.
  • Use Laser or Beam weapons and customize them with add-ons like Gatling, Sniper, Recoil, or Supercharge. Engineer the weapons that fit your style!
  • Experiment with ship design: find the right balance on the heat and power level. Tune your ship for agility or strength. There is no right or wrong, each ship will play differently!

Crafting and Survival is Work in Progress!

    We are hard at work to bring a survival experience to Starship EVO. For now you can:
  • Mine asteroids, collect Ore and craft Ingot with the Furnace
  • Craft various bricks and components with the Assembler (in the Experimental beta branch)
  • Harvest fuel nearby stars.
