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 – our current expected target is Q2 2021.”

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!”

Build like you never did before:

  • Pick bricks from a large selection and rescale them on the fly to create unique shapes. Simple yet powerful! Paint everything and apply decals to make something really unique and personal.
  • Blend large and small bricks to make small Starfighter or massive Dreadnought down to the smallest details. Customize interior and cockpit to your liking.
  • Make use of a comprehensive selection of logic bricks and mechanism like sliders, rotors or hinges of various size to create the wildest moving contraption you can envision. Landing gear, turrets, cockpit opening or anything you can dream off!
  • Play with gravity by building configurable gravity field generators or jump pads.
  • Use the repulsor system and the hovercraft computer to create and control funny anti-grav machines!
  • Build custom handheld weapons using small bricks! Give them a personal look and design their balance with weapon addons.
  • Assemble space stations in a modular way using the docking port. Create shipyards in various configurations: landing pads, drydocks, hangars...
  • Put your multi-tool to good use: link systems, repair your ship, use symmetry or have fun pushing things around with the anti-grav tool.
  • Use the Mag-lock block to grab other ships or simply store your smaller ships inside a carrier.
  • Steam Workshop: Share your creations and explore the community amazing builds!

Go to war:

  • Use Laser or Beam weapons core and augment them with Barrels or Side add-ons among Gatling, Sniper, Recoil, Supercharge, Damage boost and more. Experiment and design the weapons that fits your style!
  • Fight NPCs or friends in tense space battle: manage your heat, power, shield and hull levels. Decide wisely to either blast enemy hull, target systems or snipe weapons to get a kill. Use the Repair tool to make emergency repair!
  • Engineer and experiment with ship design: make sure to 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!

  • [New, still in Beta] Interstellar Travel: Use the holomap to schedule Warp Jumps and explore the galaxy.
  • Land on large ring-shaped space habitats or small outposts. Visit planetary ring asteroids and fly seamlessly from planet to planet.
