    As announced during Gamescom, Ostranauts, the spaceship life simulator from NEO Scavenger creator Daniel Fedor, is out on Early Access today. We already saw its launch trailer then, but publisher Modern Wolf put together a shorter version for the actual release. Here it is along with Daniel's announcement post:



    Hey Folks!

    It's official. Ostranauts is now available on Steam Early Access!

    Roll-up a new captain, head out into the boneyard, and start picking over derelicts for useful parts. And when you find "the one," start fixing it up with spare parts and elbow grease, and make it your own. But don't forget to take a break every now and then to visit K-Leg for some R&R. And maybe convince a crew member to join you?

    If this sounds like something you might be into, head on over to the Ostranauts Steam page! There's even a 20% launch discount this week.

    Soundtrack and Special Edition

    Steam also has Josh Culler's excellent Ostranauts soundtrack for sale, including 25 in-game tracks, and 9 bonus tracks. Plus high quality FLAC versions of each. If you enjoyed Josh's music in NEO Scavenger, you should check out his latest work!

    The OST can be purchased separately, or as part of the Mescaform Edition, which bundles them together at a bigger discount.

    I hope you all enjoy the game so far. This is the beginning of a game I've wanted to play for ages, and I look forward to developing Ostranauts even more with your feedback!
    Judging by the Steam reviews, Ostranauts has launched in a pretty buggy state, but it does have an entire two years to be in Early Access. If you'd like to get in early, the game is available on Steam for $20 with a 20% launch discount until next week.

    This is a tough one. Really excited to dive into it. At the same time, early access, lot's of comments on steam about how it's quite a buggy mess at this point...

    But being the guy that bought NEO Scavanger twice (PC, Android), I think a leap of faith may be in order.

    Looks very promising and quite a leap in production values over NEO Scaveneger.

    If the gameplay is at least as good, I'm in (after the bugs have been sorted out).

    I've been playing Neo Scavenger since its alpha days before steam. The dev got a good head on his shoulders.
    Even though I might not want to dive in this early this time around I'm inclined to support the project with
    my wallet in early access. I've supported games with way less hope of ever coming together.
    Hey! Don't judge me for supporting Barkley 2! I so very much wanted to jam. :sadsmiley:

    Always a good lesson to not launch into Steam's EA too early.

    But it is a good sign that most negative reviews even acknowledge that they trust things will eventually be fixed due to good rep.

    I planned on waiting a little longer before playing it. But I might just give it a spin to give Kodexia a little insight.

    See last two pages in this thread.

    At the moment I'm getting some task queuing bugs so I haven't managed to fix a ship fully yet. It occurs again after reloading so I figure some variable is set to something dumb and it got saved as such, I probably should restart.
