Feature: Space to grow

Ostranauts is a hugely ambitious space game, but I think it’s going to work

"This is all just an excuse for me to build a universe, right?" says Daniel Fedor, as I settle in for an evening watching him play Ostranauts. And he's serious. The sandboxy space sim, which hit early access on September 10th, and which is a sort-of sequel to acclaimed oddball RPG NEO Scavenger, has some properly deep worldbuilding. And I don't mean deep as in…

Neo Scavenger “spiritual sequel” Ostranauts is now exploring space in early access

The crew behind the fantastic Neo Scavenger have returned to the universe of their post-apocalyptic survival game with Ostranauts, a "spiritual sequel" about struggling amongst the cold stars rather than on the ruined Earth.

Feature: Ah dinnea ken if I can take any more, Captain

Ostranauts is a jaw-dropping space sim, trapped in a brutal interface

Ostranauts looks like RimWorld on spaceships, and it has great nouns

You know what are underrated? Nouns. The new trailer for "noir spaceship life sim" Ostranauts introduces the game's scifi world in which you design a ship, captain its crew, and tinker with control panels, and its full of excellent fictional nouns, both proper and common. "I've smuggled contraband Lusca out of Atlantis," says the narrator, and I instantly want to do the same.

New publisher Modern Wolf declare commitment to “ethical game development”

New wee indie publisher Modern Wolf announced themselves to the world this week, and made a big show of declaring they are "committed to ethical game development." Their initial lineup of five games sounds pretty neat, including the next games from the studios behind Neo Scavenger and Out There. More folks in the industry do talk openly about its troubles these days but it's still…
