Astrov is a (WiP) space combat sim focusing primarily on ship-to-ship dogfighting, taking inspiration from some of the best games of the genre. Take to the stars, earn money, become a legendary pilot and utilize powerful ships, ranging from deadly fighters and bombers to carriers and destroyers as you make your mark in an unforgiving network of worlds outside our own. A playable prototype is available, which both showcases implemented features and is a platform for future dev updates.

If this is your first time playing I highly suggest you enable the tutorial within the main menu and follow the provided steps after launching to space. Bear in mind that you have to press the displayed keys at least once to proceed.
Outside of the in-game tutorial, you can also refer to the included keybinds for reference.
