Yes this game is STILL in early access 4yrs later….. I have the game but I haven’t played it because I have been waiting for it to leave early access. But over the years the game has looked to have gotten a facelift and a lot of different features added to the game. It is definitely leaps and bounds better than Miner Wars.
I have this game and so does my son, he actually likes it a lot. He loves building things so this game is right up his alley. I found it kinda boring since the planets I landed on were basically lifeless. Now I haven’t played or read up on the game in a few months but I basically only played it for 2-3hrs with my kid and I haven’t played much since so it didn’t suck me in to keep me coming back.
I do hope Keen Software does keep supporting it and doesn’t just drop it like they did Miner Wars, because this game could have some great staying power if they start building on NPC’s and making the universe seem populated. I will read up more on this to see what they have included and hope to get back to the game soon.
