Ready up for your next space adventure with The Captain. A blending of a point and click adventure, a space sim and much more into one gorgeous looking game. Developed by Sysiac Games, with publishing help from Tomorrow Corporation.

It's a race against time as you race across the galaxy carrying the only thing that can stop dark forces trying to destroy the Earth. Sounds perhaps a little bit like the basic story from FTL: Faster Than Light but with a rather different way to play through with planetary exploration. Check out the trailer below:

It's not too often that I feel like I need to play something but this is it. I want it. Now that was a brilliant trailer, totally sold on this already. Planetary exploration with plenty of events, space combat, decision after decision that could result in hilarious or terrible outcomes - yup this is one to watch.

You can follow it on GOG and Steam.

That's actually a failed Kickstarter from 2016. Quite happy to see it being released regardless, and with support for Linux no less! Was really disappointed that it didn't get much attention back then (though I guess I would have been even less happy had it taken 5 years to make after a successful campaign).

So what a nice surprise! Wishlisted and marked for purchase-on-release-day.

I suppose there's a decent chance that if they'd had some kickstarter money to live on they could have taken time off day jobs and written it faster.
