What do you do when you’ve spent enough time modding one particular game that you feel competent enough to make your own? Something like Unending Galaxy is what! ;) Creating by a prolific modder to the X series of games, Unending Galaxy takes many of the tenants of those games — such as an open universe with a multitude of professions, commodities, AI pilots and factions and so on to engage with — puts it in a massive 2D universe (with multiple maps to play with) and both enhances and streamlines the gameplay. While I’ve always found the gameplay in the X series to be a bit obtuse, after reading Unending Galaxy’s manual, I had a much better time playing this than most of the previous entries in the X series. In this video, I’ll show a couple of professions you can start with in the deluxe version of the game, from basic trader to lost fleet searching for a new home to call their own. Even though I still had some interface hurdles to overcome — this is a beta after all, it’s still cooking — I had a lot of fun in Unending Galaxy’s vibrant and very alive universe. Check out the video to see it all in action, and thank you for watching!
