Explore space in AuroraRL, now in Early Access for Linux & SteamOS

Posted by , | Views: 2,499
AuroraRL is a space exploration game where our precious earth is in crisis, and it's your task to seek out alien life and make new friends.

The game isn't finished, as it's in Early Access and only has about 1/3rd of the story put in.

I haven't been able to get far at all, as the game has a number of issues. I would have liked to have been able to give this one some detailed thoughts, but it's broken.

Right now the fullscreen mode is quite buggy. At 4K resolution the text is far too small. At 1080p resolution on a 4K monitor the Ubuntu Unity sidebar will stay there, so it's not proper full-screen.

Also, I can no longer launch it due to Java errors. I am not the only one this is happening too either, see this forum topic.

Right now, it has too many issues to be worth a purchase, sadly. I will update you when it's a bit further along, but right now I wouldn't waste any money as it's so broken.
