I always wanted to be a captain of a spaceship. And Endless Sky, for me, is the closest thing there is! I tried various fancy space sims (didn't try Starfield yet though), but they aren't quite the same as this game.

I think the beauty of Endless Sky is, since it's so simple graphically, and there's lots of text, your mind naturally fills the gaps and it's almost like reading a book! But you're not just a reader but a central character of it! I guess this is kind of like space D&D.

Maybe gameplay isn't very exciting, even repetitive sometimes, but so is life! Captain's life isn't always packed with action. But it really makes you feel like a merchant, mercenary or smuggler (or whoever you choose to be) living their routine days!

You can wander alone minding your own business or conquer the galaxy with your own fleet of warships. There are more than 100(!) unique spaceships and lots of outfits to tune your ships with. It is interesting to think about how to make the best layout, how to push as much stuff to your ship as possible, because space is always limited.

I like spending half an hour planning my route through the galaxy so I can grab as many jobs as I can and resell goods for the best price while I am at it.

I really like how every planet/station has its own picture, story and description; makes it feel more real. Trading prices and jobs are always relevant to a planet which is cool too. The game is full of interesting and unique quests; just hang out in spaceports and you'll always find some! There are also several storylines that you can complete.

The game is open source, and easily extendable. You can install/create plugins, and contribute to the game yourself. It is something you can't usually get for money, and this game gives it for free!
