Alpha version is out, and Backer Kit Survey
about 2 months ago
– Tue, Nov 27, 2018 at 02:06:42 PM
The alpha version of the game is now available to anyone who has backed the game at over 100 euros. An e-mail from BACKERKIT should have arrived in your inbox by now.
For those of you who have backed the game for less than 100 euros, and want to access the alpha, please remember that you can upgrade your pledge in backerkit to play the alpha now.
There are still a number of people who have not filled out the survey, and need to do so in order to obtain their rewards. We'd like to take the opportunity to remind you that there's one week left to lock the surveys, so please make sure to send them in before then! If you have any issues finding the survey, you can follow the link below: https://between-the-stars.backerkit.com/
Development News: New Dice System
In the demo the decisions you made had an indication of success and failure that was automatically calculated based on crew and character statistics. We’ve augmented the system to implement dice rolls, making them visible when determining said results.
A character trained in charisma will have a much easier time getting a good oratory skill, barter or intimidation roll than one specialized in leadership or physical aptitude. This system isn’t only made for events, meaning we have quite a few great surprises related to their functionality.
Now we want to talk about Helbound by Saibot Studios.
Hellbound is a first-person shooter in the vein of classics like DOOM, Quake, Duke Nukem 3D, Blood, and many others, but using the most recent technology in visuals and audio.
It's GROTESQUE! Focused on action, speed and gore!

It’s been a little over a week since we finalized our Kickstarter. We are now working on preparing the Alpha version for the backers with immediate alpha access.
Backer surveys will be sent out on the fifth, in 10 days via Backerkit, where you will be able to upgrade your reward level, add new add-ons and respond to questions that are needed for us to send you your rewards.
We also want to bring attention to those who had trouble processing payment, you will be able to pay via Backerkit once the survey arrives in your e-mail.
Since we've finalized the Kickstarter campaign we've been working non-stop bettering the ship's controls, preliminary work on mouse control, key rebinding, adding new events and dividing space stations and planets into unique places. Also, with this new system we'll add locations on planets where you can discover stores, new text events and more.
Other Amazing Games
Now we want to talk about King under the Mountain. It's a simulation-based settlement-building strategy game set in a fantasy world, for Windows, Mac and Linux.
Players take charge of a group of settlers founding a new colony, planning out work to be done and designing the rooms and structures that make up a burgeoning society. The focus is on having a deep simulation of characters and their behaviour as well as the world and environment they inhabit.
Thank you everyone!

Our Kickstarter campaign is arriving to its end! Only 6 hours left to go and we still have to unlock the Reassembly Bay!
In the Reassembly Bay you can place items in for a chance of making a better item! We need 3.000€ to unlock it, do you think we'll achieve it? Let's push it!
Keep in mind that you can get an extra copy of the game or a printable posters pack as an add-on to help us to unlock the Reassembly Bay!
We also want to talk about a tabletop RPG made by our friend Todd Medema.
Expedition is a lightweight tabletop RPG that combines the best of video games and tabletop gaming to get you straight into the adventure. It uses an open source companion app with over 100 adventures so that you can play with or without a GM, 1-6 players age 8 and up. This Kickstarter is for The Future expansion, which adds new SciFi elements to the game - plus a Deluxe bundle that includes everything you need to play at an unbeatable price.
