Anyhoo. This beastie is a space shooter/RPG/FTL/roguelike/thingy, quite like Everspace, but with slightly less good graphics and squiffy voice acting. That said, I enjoyed playing through the demo and the last past of it was so monumentally badass that I backed it on the spot.
Instead of Everspace's small fighter style ships, however, the ones in Between the Stars are quite a bit larger, and you have various sections which are operated by various NPC crewmembers, leading to various events like in FTL, where sometimes the character skills are enough to solve a problem.... And sometimes aren't. You can research items on your travels, build bits and bobs for your ship and find items on your travels. The star sytems that you are
Give the demo a go and see what you think
