    For those who don't venture into the Console space, here's my Star Control inspired space shooter:

    It's in Steam Early Access. I've just completed a major update to include full controller support for the TV big picture experience, and cloud saves so you can continue your game on mobile (currently free Android Open Beta).

    Quick overview:

    • Console like control and gameplay
    • Design your own spacecraft
    ♟ • Optional strategic sub-game
    • Very adjustable difficulty
    • Classic '90s space-game flavouring
    • Cross platform saves

    After three years' work thus far, it's at a point where user feedback is very needed to make it properly good. ;)

    There's KB/M support for the Glorious PC Master Race, as well as controller support. I should link this movie - all Intel PC, no pesky console peasantry or lame mobile OSes featured. ;)

    Whoa it came to pc!

    Btw how do you make into early access? Is it more cumbersome than play store? Easier? Cheaper?

    Did you maybe consider adding versus play akin to Spacewar! from '62 and its modern spiritual successor Senko no Ronde sometimes in the future?

    Pay Valve a hundred bucks and put whatever crap you like on their store. ;)

    Nope. Single player only. The primary goal was something good on mobile for gamers to play on the train etc. Multiplayer will be too costly to add this far in.
