The Spacefarer Gazette

News

Greetings, Spacefarers!

As we speed through the weeks leading up to Kickstarter, we’re ready to share more about the game and give people an in depth look at what BTS has to offer. This week, we’re bringing out our brand new trailer. Be sure to check it out, it will be shared on all of our channels today! We also want to share that we’ll be starting Kickstarter on September 4th, with the aim to launch Between the Stars in Q1 of 2019. It may seem far off, but it’s just a lightspeed jump away!

This week, we bring an in depth look at the crew in Between the Stars, and what role they play in the game. They are a critical part of being able to complete missions and complete a variety of tasks.

Hiring crew members will help flesh out your team of 8. These additions to your team will be able to progress as you play the game. Should death befall any of them, you will be able to fill those slots with new hires in order to keep your ship running full speed ahead.

Crew will advance in rank as you play the game, giving them even more capabilities through insignias which can be given to them. Your crew provide various effects and execute many of the tasks you need to perform in game.

As your adventure continues, your crew will be busy with a number of activities, including creating and improvement of objects, curing diseases, investigating new technology, dismantling salvage, and more. These tasks are available according to your crew’s capabilities.

Space is a dangerous place, and the effects this has on your crew are no exception. In addition to the danger of perishing due to poor decisions, your crew can also be faced with injuries and illnesses which cause negative effects. You will need a medical crew to combat these conditions and ensure your recruits are at their best and ready to take on their tasks. Should a member of your crew die, they will need to be laid to rest at a space station to open up room on your roster to replace the unfortunate soul.

These are the roles available for your crew:

  • Specialists are a critical part of your crew, and are directly responsible for the attack system of the ship, as well as the looting of chests on destroyed vessels. They are a passive group, and are not assignable to rooms
  • Engineers can build new weapons from materials or scrap existing weapons to recover materials and blueprints.
  • Scientists are in charge of investigating technology, and the devices they investigate lead to obtaining different rewards. They are also responsible for healing your crew, so be sure to take good care of them!

Be sure to join us next week for another Spacefarer Gazette, and we hope to see you on our Discord server!

There isn't a complex commerce or world system. Between the Stars is a roguelike style game, you have to accomplish main missions (like "bosses") to advance in the star map.
It's a single player game, no multiplayer planned.

You can check out the last article, there's a gameplay that will answer your questions.
