Disclaimer: I am a backer of Infinite Space 3: Sea Of Stars. Do I need to disclaim that? It’s not like I’m an investor. I just gave them money to make a game I wanted to play, and I only backed at the lowest tier. If anything, I was making an investment in me. I pre-ordered happiness. Disclaimer: I am an investor in Craig, and Craig is well happy at seeing the first glimpse of Infinite Space 3: Sea Of Stars. Digital Eel‘s third entry in their farcical space roguelike series is making the transition from a top-down 2D adventure, to bulbous and spacious 3D. There’s a roomy video below.
This is the first look, so there’s a lot left to go into it. Some icons are represented by cats and dogs, and though I’m totally cool with that I expect they’ll change. And I’d imagine the text will have a long soaking from the humour hose, as the main reason to adventure in the previous two games was to encounter the wonderfully silly item texts. But look, it is new Infinite Space! I’ve been waiting eight years for more of it. The bingy-bongy music, the space font, the lovely icon cards! It looks like they’ve captured the feel of the series, which is no small feat if you’re returning to it after all that time.
With this and FTL, lunchtime is spacier than eating a dark matter spread space sandwich with Chris Hadfield.
