Command your own Starship! Take control of a powerful faster than light ship. You control the crew and the stations. Your skills as a commander will either help you to survive the perils of the galaxy, or cause your crew to perish. Your crew lead the way. You keep them fed, give them rest, and entertainment. Assign them to stations to boost your ships abilities and level up their skills. Each crewman is unique and valuable. Each one you let die is a huge set back! Explore the galaxy! Trade between worlds, and use diplomacy to learn the secrets of the universe. IF all else fails, make planet fall and explore the world on foot. Upgrades are everywhere! New ships are available at every port. Purchase helpful stations which you can place on board your ship to help your crew, or your combat abilities. Powerful guns and armor are available as well to keep the commander safe on his away missions.

That’s it! from here you’re free to go hog wild. We've written some fluff on the contest page at Mastercoldrice.com
No on to the updates!
Prelimary work has begun on developing the races for Interstellaria. The goal is to have 3 main races as customizable as the humans are. From there, a handful of races which are not customizable but unique/random to find in the galaxy.
We cheated a little by making them bipedal - but overall we were looking for a very non-human looking group.
A good example of this is how we've added new skin colors for humans:
From there we jumped into allowing you to swap equipment between crewmen
We've also added Platforms:
and on a smaller note, we've also added sliders to the power system:
That's it for now! check out the contest, and of course lend us your support on steam greenlight:
