If you like what you see or are interesting head on over to their website and see what else they have to show you. The game does have a full on story that you can play through with your custom character and it does look to have a massive amount of replayability due to the whole randomly generated universe with hundreds of star systems, it also helps that the game will be coming out with mod support. There also looks to be very many options when it comes to customizing ships and building a fleet, take a look at many of the ships that are being considered right now.
It is easy to compare this game with Space Pirates and Zombies, but let them not complete, let them both be unique and interesting in their own rights. Great space games are rare, especially these days, and it's worth watching out for games like this and as soon as I can I'm going to get in on Starfarer and let you all know how it is turning out. The game is available for Windows, Mac and Linux. Thanks for reading and do check it out, at least visit the site and read about it. Thanks to RPS for making me aware of Starfarer's existence.
