Alone in space, light years away from your family, you are Cargo Corps’ latest recruit, a Cargo Commander. Your responsibilities are simple: travel through the vast reaches of wormhole-filled space salvaging priceless cargo from alien infested containers. The work, however, is hard, honest, and hairy: punch and shoot deadly mutants in the face, while traveling between your ship and containers. Jockey for promotions with thousands of other Cargo Commanders in the galaxy, collect over 80 different cargo types, all the while earning your way back home. * Randomly generated sectors based on names that you can choose, shared with other players * Fully destructible environments; create your own path with your Platform drill and explosives * Compete with other players; each sector has an online leaderboard * 2 modes: Career and Journey * Loot the bodies of other players * Upgrade your weapons and tools * Find and send postcards, and encounter cards lost by other players
Has always on DRM (you can play, but can't progress). Expect this from EA and Blizzard, but I thought indies respected the gamer more.
Also requires Steam, but than doesn't start properly from the Steam client (on Mac), so you have to run it directly from the file system.
Game itself has very repetitive game-play.
