ah wow. I love space games like these, but I'm not a fan of roguelike so this is welcome news.

I tried the alpha. It's good. It's empty for the moment but the gamplay feels better than most recent space games I've tried (I quit Rebel Galaxy Outlaw because of its horrible gameplay). Even tho the engine is the same as the first game, the graphics are very good for an independant studio. Really looking forward for the game, planetary landing and full campaign sounds exciting.

I loved Rebel Galaxy. Outlaw wasn't nearly as good, but I thought it was ok. Added Everspace 2 to my Steam wishlist. Early access not until December? Sheesh.....hopefully it be worth the wait.

The first game is one of my fave games. I'm so disappointed with what they did for the second. It's clear they haven't mastered fighter-style gameplay yet. The ships move weirdly, it's difficult to align shots. Boring battles.

Agree. And I miss the massive capital ships. Those things were awesome.
