    Was in beta, got it in erly access. Really cool, but still buggy as hell. Lots of crashes, ships beyond the first one you can buy are so buggy they are pretty much non-viable. Every ship is fun and quite unique, so the game is perfectly playable now. In other words, recommended, but wait for it to stabilise a bit.

    The game also has need for some docs, especially comparison of components / modules so you can make informed decisions on what to upgrade. For this I made some python code to extract all relevant data from game and put it into nice excel table. let me know if you're interested, either code or xls.

    That's not a promising report.

    Anyone else tried it?

    As I said, I've tried it. It got way more stable since EA launch, there are updates every few days. It's lots of fun submarine-trader-in-space kind of thing. The graphics might be a turn-off for some. NPCs are also quite wordy, so if you want to just fly around and trade they might be bit annoying.

    It's silent hunter in space, but you can trade shit and meet uninteresting persons in bases. Quite good.
    You are alone in the ship though, so when shit gets real it gets real quick and painful.
    It's quite involved. Each system is configurable and repairable through a separate interface.
    EDIT: If you want a more detailed description on how to play a smuggler so you get a better feeling on how the game plays (that's how I'm playing at the moment), give this steam guide a read. It's completely spoiler-free, aside from the few equipment recommendations:

    Reminds me a LOT of Red Storm Rising (one of my most fondly remembered games for the C64 way back when) in space.

    If you are floating, though, you're a stationary object that happens to be exactly where you are expected to be when you were last seen. I'm not even going to go into the thermodynamics of how dropping off the scope in the first place wouldn't work. I'm just saying, if you don't do anything to change your trajectory, you're stationary and going to be exactly where they expect you to be. You'd have to pull off this change without going above the game's detection threshold.

    Been following the game off and on for a long time. Always liked the premisis. Now that it is actually released? Meh. It could use some more explaining concerning equipment, a more involved universe and some more ways of dealing with circumstances in space. Not to mention, a lot of bug fixing and extra content. Atmosphere wise though, they nailed it. Hope the devs keep at it. The game seems to be just shy of really becoming something.

    If you like that one, go check out Cold Waters. It's a spiritual successor to ye olde RSR. And rocks.

    I bought it today, it's pretty addictive but i think is one of those game that you burnt it and it burnt you in a week.

    You guys should give it a try. Pretty good overall
