I made a topic over on another forum too if this seems like a repeat, just wanted more possible discussion.
Just stumbled upon this news item that popped up, tracked it back to Steam, then back to both GOG and the makers website.
Everspace. Any of you aware of this or even pre-bought into it or otherwise backed it in alpha/beta? It goes final version a week from today.
It looks stunning, has a xbox version if someone has that too. It looks like much what Star Citizen wanted to before years of begging for money, delays, scrappings, re-writings, and adding in other dumb crap that wasn't space flight combat.
It's action oriented, but it's got roguelike elements to make it more risky. You take down stuff, try not to get greased, you can craft better or find better stuff for your ship (or replacement ship), and so much more. Seems to be single player so it's like a really beautiful old Wing Commander love letter in ways I think. The game also seems to randomly create much of everything for your challenges so nothing is the same twice, and challenge could be an easy one or something that'll get an experienced pilot their ass handed to them if they're not really careful. And even then it says death in inevitable.
Just reading up on it and watching what I've seen I haven't felt this interesting or amused by this kind of game in a very long time. Goes for $30 if you buy from GoG/Steam, get a few bucks off if you order direct (you get a key for either site instead) with a few small perks.
Anyone on board with this or like me had no idea?
