Hi everyone!

We've made our first major milestone! The first playable release is a proof of concept which give an idea of what is DSS and where it is going as well as showing that the game is real! The F.P. release will not go in steam EA yet as I feel - and probably most of you - that steam early access should be for games that are close to being completed, which is not the case for Deep Space Settlement.

However, if you would like to grab this build and try it out, give feedback and have you voice heard on the development of DSS, you may get the "Lieutenant" package which give access to the game right now! Head over Dss.stephanierct.com to get it.


So what's next?
Next up is adding more feature basically. I am listing the upcoming feature on our website's forum. Check it out, comment & suggest right there ->Stephanierct.com

Finally, thanks everyone for your support and patience on the development of DSS. The F.P. release is the fruit of many years of engine and game development and is a very important achievement. A special thank to everyone who got/will get the FP release and help me spot bugs/issues through feedback and play tests. You are awesome! <3

-Stephanie

Your lead art director left the project?! This doesn't sound good, I am a bit concerned.
