Game modes and news



News from the latest Alpha update
Backers with access to the Alpha (those who paid 100€ or more) can now play the second chapter in the main storyline.

We have also added a character editor as a new feature. The editor lets you create a captain of your choosing. Shape their look any way you like, change their name, background and even special attributes.

Right now we are adding new events and main missions to the game and in a few weeks we will work on important features such as controls, performance issues, camera etc…

Game modes and salvage pods
One of the most asked questions we have received is about the stash system on the stations and the salvage pods. We’d like to clear up that salvage pods are completely free. Between the Stars will not have any form of in game purchases.

-Salvage Pods are rewards obtained when sacking a destroyed enemy ship, or purchasing it in certain space stations. In them we will find weapons, systems, materials, money… A juicy bit of loot that you’ll want to open immediately. These boxes can also be stashed away on stations so you can open them further along on other play throughs.

-Space station stashes will allow you to store these boxes in order to recover them on other playthroughs after your death. This will let captains to supply themselves prior to a new battle. Every time your captain dies you will have a series of penalty’s depending on your chosen method of play.

-Normal Mode: Your captain’s death penalizes you.
You will appear in your previous save point, with your captain and crew intact (if they were still alive at this point). Nonetheless, you will lose all weapons and objects in your inventory (keeping items coupled to your ship). In this moment a thrifty captain will have access to loot boxes that he had stored up for himself previously in his stash to be able to stock up and continue on the adventure.

-Hard mode: Death is the end.
Your captain’s death is the end of the game, but not the end of the game. In the next playthrough you’ll have access to your blueprints, unlocked ships, and salvage pods that you had stashed away on the station when you start fresh.

About This Game

Between the Stars is a space action video game with traces of RPG, management and roguelike elements that puts you in the shoes of a stellar cruiser Captain. Your mission is to protect the civilized world fighting the Children of the Sun, the faction that dominates the outer worlds of the known universe. To carry out your mission you will have to cross the galaxy, face new challenges in each jump, make difficult decisions that will affect your ship, your crew and the world around you, improve your ship's equipment and fight in exciting battles to survive.


  • Fight in intense space battles.
  • Use the special abilities of your ship at the right time to make a difference on the battlefield.


  • Unlock new ships through achievements. Each ship has its own style and special abilities that makes it unique.
  • Choose your captain in each game. The captain brings his fighting style and unique bonuses to the ship, but keep in mind that death is permanent and if they dies in the game you will not be able to choose it again and a new captain will replace it.
  • Captains have an unique look and attributes combination.


  • Sectors, star maps, enemies and space stations are procedurally generated. No game will be like the previous one!

  • Equip your ship and upgrade your equipment during the course of the adventure.
  • Recruit new crew to replace the casualties and make the right decisions to increase their level more quickly and keep your crew safe.
