PULSAR: Lost Colony is a space exploration game where you and friends (or AI) can team up to play a unique role on board a spaceship. It just had a pretty huge update!

This big update, has revamped all the character art to give them a much improved look, along with a new appearance menu and more unlockable cosmetic items. They also added two entirely new playable races: The Sylvassi and Humanoid Robots.

Each race has their own unique feature too, Humans can be revived once per "jump", Robots can be repaired with a tool and The Sylvassi can cloak themselves. The AI was of course updated to support these new features too.

Last time we jumped in, which was a long time ago myself, Samsai and Sin did have a fair bit of fun. The amount of content they've added in the last year is most impressive. The only thing they really need to do now, is make exploring planets more interesting and add some more story content.

Find the full update notes here.

You can grab it now on Humble Store and Steam. It's on sale on both stores right now, well worth a look.

Steam claims I put this on my wishlist only last month---but that's gotta be wrong. Some weird wrinkle in the writhing gelatinous goo passing for the eldritch threat to our dimension known as "Valve time." I've been seeing Pulsar in constant rotation in my Steam "Featured and Recommended" section forev---no. Not forever.


I would see it and I think "yeah, call me when you get out of Early Access you ambitious promiser of Linux gaming sci-fi...something something." Worse than forgetting everything about this game, I didn't even realize I had forgotten everything about this game. The only reason I knew it was a sci-fi game was that every time I saw the word "Pulsar" on Steam's Store page, I saw a space ship.

Well fuck all that and fuck my reliably unreliable shit for an excuse memory. Pulsar looks like near perfect, and at 40% off? I just bought it! HA! Take that dire forces of Darkness and Despair!
