The arcady space shooter called Everspace, which is made by Rockfish Games (the same guys behind Galaxy on Fire), will be leaving Steam’s early access program on May 26th. I like Everspace a lot; mostly because I am a fan of space games like EVE Online or Freelancer and fast paced shooters in which there’s too much action for you to handle.
An update this week has added functional cockpit displays, a “mysterious alien race” and other changes, as the roguelike-ish, sci-fi, VR-enabled starfighter shooter transitions to a full release next month.
In addition to that, you can watch the latest trailer right here:
In patch 0.7, a lot of new things will be added and old things will be fixed. “Version 0.5 and 0.6 fell off the back of a gigantic space truck if you’re wondering. Kidding aside, a lot of comments indicated that version numbers were often being associated with completion percentage (though they’re really just numbers to us), so we’ve decided to play along and go with version 0.7 – as the inclusion of the functional cockpits, the Glyphs and the Ancients are all big additions and we’re fast-approaching full release,” says Andi from Rockfish in their latest forum entry.
