Summary

Everspace is a roguelite space sim in which you play as a pilot trying to escape an authority that tried to kill them. It's an objective you are going to fail over and over and over again...

Each run is randomised so you have a variety of levels to get through that seemingly provide endless permutations. You start a run by jumping in to a sector of space. Here, you gather fuel, loot and cash by mining and fighting before jumping through a gate to the next sector.

The map you go to between jumps is reminiscent of FTL and several other games - you have multiple paths to head down with unknown challenges in each sector. At the end of the map is a final gate to jump through leading to ever-increasingly difficult encounters. The greater the risk is, the greater the potential reward...

With those risks, of course, also comes an increased chance of dying. Once dead you return to the start, but not before you have a chance to change ship or upgrade the one you are currently in. There are a lot of different ways to enhance your vessel - better maneuverability, increased weapons output, it all helps you get a bit further on the next run.

Death is inevitable, but each death is another step in a much larger journey.

This Stellar Edition includes the Encounters expansion pack, which injects tons of additional content into Everspace in the form of new questlines, characters and equipment.
