Hitting Early Access this month is Ostranauts is a survival game set within a ravaged solar system.
Starting as the captain, you have to design a one-of-a-kind spaceship and manage the crew’s physical and emotional well-being in an attempt to stay alive, salvaging parts to keep the ship functioning.
Sounds a little like Tharsis but without the dice.
Only in Ostranauts you get to customise everything – not just the ship but your character such as name, appearance and how they wish to be identified. But don’t be fooled in thinking it’s a glamorous game as debt plagues your career, so you have to manage resources effectively.
Additional feature include:
- Fly to different worlds completing tasks, get more tools for characters and parts for the ship
- Encounter a variety of ship types, makes and models
- Combat elements – space battle and hand to hand
- Meeting with other ships – possible hostile encounters (you never know who to trust)
