2014 Holiday Space Game Buying Guide: Early Access Edition

Early Access Stuff is AWESOME!

Hello folks, and welcome to my Space Game Holiday Early Access Buying Guide for the holiday season of 2014! Unlike the guide to complete games, this one covers early access titles that aren’t yet finished. This means I had to make the — honestly, rather tough — call as to determine which games were “finished […]

Interstellaria – A Completely Professional Preview

OhGodOhGodOhGodOhGod...

Interstellaria is another Starflight-esque roguelike, but in THIS game it focuses much more on crew management and survival throughout both space and ground missions.

Infinite Space III: How to Explore a Whole Universe in No Time at All!

What a Busy Universe!

The Infinite Space games do something awesome. They take the massive scope of games like Starflight and Star Control II — with their exploration, discovery, combat and so on — and boil them down to the essentials, so you can have a similar experience in a fraction of the time. The first two games were […]
