Description
Release date: Second quarter 2014
Star Trek meets Dungeons & Dragons!

Approaching Infinity is a top-down turn-based strategic retro space exploration game

Pursue combat, quests, and loot in an ever-expanding universe, or set your sights on any of nine unique paths to victory! Explore planets, caverns, shipwrecks, star temples, ruined cities, and more. Trade commodities between sectors, discover schematics to craft powerful items, and hire officers and level up their skills. Befriend alien races, help them reach their goals, or just kill kill kill!

Inspiration has come from a lifetime of sci-fi and video games, including the Ultima Series, Star Trek, Orson Scott Card, Borderlands, Babylon 5, Neal Asher, Brogue, Prospector, Space Empires IV, Star Wars, Peter F. Hamilton, and classic Dungeons & Dragons.

During the Greenlight campaign, Approaching Infinity will be on sale for 34% off [ibol17.itch.io] All purchases include a steam key.

I'd say this is HEAVILY influenced by ProspectorRL, and very lightly by the other mentions.. Until this offers everything that ProspectorRL does (and it either already does, or is really close), I'd probably prefer good ol' Prospector.. But this is shiny, nonetheless (compared to prospector, at least..) so I thumb it up (and remain suprised it hasn't been Greenlit already..)

Seems well integrated and appears to have a lot of depth. You got my vote.

Hi, Beanchilla,
Thanks for the interest!
I tried to contact you thru itch.io already.
Early Access is closed. the only thing offered right now is the demo, which is free. I still need to change some web pages, sorry. I completely disabled the "pay" options today, which I thought I had done.

For now, the full game is not available until release in May. Check your email, and we can talk there.

Hey there.
I'm a bit confused. It says 34% off but the site says name your own price. I paid 6 dollars and it sent me to a page with the demo and level designer. I'd love early access but understand if it's closed. I'm also curious if this means I'll get a steam key or access to the full game. Would love to buy it.

Let me know what's up and feel free to add and PM me if that's easier.

Thank you! looking forward to the release!!!

My only issues with the demo have to do with the UI. Hope you will surprise us...

Thanks, Foopy64!

@ GnoSIS:
There are multiple ship tiers, and some need to be unlocked.

Also, ships at the shipyard *do* get better, the further in the game you go. Like way better ;)

There are already quite a few different kinds of sectors / biomes, and still more to come yes!

Also about "biomes", there are 8 different kinds of planets, each with its own selection of terrain and monsters.
