Endless Sky

Endless Sky

This is a 2D space trading and combat game similar to the classic Escape Velocity series. Explore other star systems. Earn money by trading, carrying passengers, or completing missions. Use your earnings to buy a better ship or to upgrade the weapons and engines on your current one. Blow up pirates. Take sides in a civil war. Or leave human space behind and hope to find friendly aliens whose culture is more civilized than your own.

Endless Sky is a sandbox-style space exploration game. You start out as the captain of a tiny space ship and can choose what to do from there. The game includes a major plot line and many minor missions, but you can choose whether you want to play through the plot or strike out on your own as a merchant or bounty hunter or explorer.

Features include:

  • Plugin system allows anyone with a text editor and a paint program to create new ships, weapons, or missions
  • Create new star systems and planets with its galaxy editor

Endless Sky

Over time, the game universe will expand as contributors add new missions, story lines, alien species, places to explore, sound effects, and artwork.
