On Thursday, publisher 505 Games released a trailer announcing that Objects in Space is now available in early access on Steam. Developed by Flat Earth Games, Objects in Space is a 2D open-world stealth game set in Apollo, a huge cluster of star systems far away from Earth. The game uses starships that are modeled after Cold War submarines.
Players take on the role of a ship captain, buying and selling wares in order to keep their ships afloat as they attempt to stay one step ahead of pirates, organized criminals, corrupt governments, and shady laws. What makes this open-world game different is that it is time-based. Objects in Space takes place over the course of three months, but players are not bound to a main storyline. Instead, they can follow a variety of short stories. The amount of narrative a player wants to involve in their campaign is based on their choices meaning that they can fly straight into combat or find ways to avoid it completely.
You can check out the trailer below. Objects in Space is available for PC and Mac in early access on Steam, and if you grab it before June 28th, you can get a 10% discount.
