Between the Stars is a roguelike game where you play as a captain of a military spaceship. The final goal is to get to the capital of the Republic to defend it from the attack of the outer worlds. During the journey you will have to make decisions that will affect your ship and crew, buy and upgrade weapons and systems of your ship and fight with enemy ships.
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:
