Okay, the game has actually been available for a week already, but we somehow missed getting a post up here about it. Special thanks to Stevoisiak
for reminding me to post this and for helping with the writing. Now, on with the post:
A little over a year ago, a little project by the name of Edge of Space was submitted to Kickstarter
. Pitched as "a unique mix of survival, defense, exploration, [and] station building", the game quickly reached it's modest funding goal.
Edge of Space has since made its way through Greenlight, even receiving recognition from one of the lead developers of Terraria,
a game that served as a major inspiration for the developers at Handyman Studios.
Currently the game is available as part of Steam Early Access for $11.99, but the price will increase to $14.99 when the game officially releases.
In Edge of Space, players suit up as an Operative of the Ark Corporation (ArkCo), deployed into the deepest, darkest, and most dangerous part of the universe. Fight against an array of creative horrors including cybernetically-enhanced laser space sharks or vicious genetically-evolved polar bears - and those are not even the strangest monstrosities to encounter!
You must terraform the entire world, craft armor, weapons, kits, and vehicles to help you explore and conquer. You start with only a laser pick and the gear from your pod, and immediately get working as every ore you mine is valuable. At the absolute edge of space you must adapt or die! Good luck ArkCo Operative!
