Running a Kickstater https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1393754749/between-the-stars?ref=569463&token=68a88e57 with 5 days left to go, 35K target and not far off it as they only have 5K left to get. will be coming to steam next year https://store.steampowered.com/app/727130/Between_the_Stars/

Gameplay footage

their is a demo of the game but I was not able to download it, the youtuber mentions that he thinks it like Rebel Galaxy but I would say it's more like a 3D version of FTL crossed with the fighting fantasy books from the 80s.

I will definitely keep my eye on this one as it progresses through early access. I rarely buy early access any more because I been burnt too many times cause the game stalls development or is in EA for many years and I loose interest.

Still following this game haven't purchased it yet because I waiting on confirmation that they will indeed finish it 😉

I read this today (Development Update): https://store.steampowered.com/news/app/727130

This is at least hopeful that we could see this game leave alpha into beta this year because they do have the end story wrapped up and they are just coding it and stuff like that. This game I think is promising IF THEY FINISH IT... so here is hoping that they do.
