Since its official release earlier this year, Everspace has been an immensely popular addition to the roguelike genre. Its smooth controls and intense combat give it a highly polished feel, which most space action games can't seem to nail down.  

There are a ton of great concepts that come together to make Everspace what it is -- and it can be hard to find games that are as satisfying. But here are a few games that should scratch that space adventuring itch just as well. 

FTL: Faster Than Light

Recognized as one of the games that popularized the roguelike genre, FTL: Faster Than Light is a phenomenal experience. Players must manage their ship as they travel through the galaxy, fighting rebel forces and other procedurally generated hazards. They have a variety of ships and weapons to utilize, as well as different races of crew members with their own special bonuses.  

Where Everspace sometimes gives the player missions to complete, they are largely optional. FTL utilizes a text-based event system which, more often than not, will include some kind of negative effects to the ship or crew. All in all, FTL is an excellent choice for any players looking for a more challenging style of gameplay.

Elite: Dangerous

Stepping away from the roguelike genre, Elite: Dangerous is a more realistic space simulator. Players are given the freedom to choose their own path -- whether that be piracy, trading, or exploration. Then they can upgrade their ship however they feel would be best for whatever lifestyle they've chosen to pursue. 

Ironically, that amount of freedom is also one of the biggest issues with the game. Given how little it guides you, it's easier for players to lose interest in this experience because they don't have a specific goal. Despite that, Elite: Dangerous has a ton of content with environments that come from real astronomical data, as well as unique procedurally generated planets. You might have to set your own goals, but if you're looking to make a living in space, Elite: Dangerous is worth checking out.

Pulsar: Lost Colony

An Early Access cooperative space simulation, Pulsar: Lost Colony is an exploration-based game where players team up to take over the various roles in a single ship. Players can complete missions for NPCs, explore planets, or play the pirate and attack other ships.  

It's still in Early Access, so there are still some features that haven't been implemented. With that in mind, the game is still enjoyable -- especially with a full crew. Players looking for a more cooperative space adventure are likely to enjoy Pulsar: Lost Colony

Strike Suit Zero

A combination of spaceship and mech suit dog-fighting, Strike Suit Zero steps into the spotlight. Players are given a ship that can swap from a standard spaceship into a Gundam-style mech suit, allowing for a variety of gameplay options. Strike Suit Zero is said to be getting VR support soon, too -- so if you're in need of a VR space shooter, keep an eye on this one.

Humble Indie Bundle X Adds 3 More Games Tue, 14 Jan 2014 18:21:27 -0500 Courtney Gamache

As if the Humble Indie Bundle X wasn't amazing as is was with the starting games, they've added three more games that will be difficult to deny.

Starting Games in Humble Indie Bundle X

The games that made up the arrival of the X bundle include Reus, To the Moon, Joe Danger 2: The Movie, Papo & Yo, and the infamous Surgeon Simulator 2013. For a full compilation please either refer to my earlier article, or the Humble Bundle website itself. Within both links are details pertaining to all of the games said above, which are all available on Steam

Holy Batman, 3 More Games!

Although the Humble Indie Bundle X started out strong, they're going the distance by adding three more games that will complete your Steam library.

  • HOARD - As the title implies, you'll be hoarding something indeed, and in this game it is gold. You'll be playing as a dragon whose goal is to gain the most gold possible. In this arcade-style game, you'll have the pleasure of scaring villagers and burning them to the ground. Burn, baby burn!
  • Strike Suit Zero - Set in the future (286 years exact), this spaceship simulator game gives you a universe where Earth is near extinction and in need of dire help. The fate of the world rests upon the Strike Suit ship, which you are in command over. Destroy your enemies and save the day, or there won't be a tomorrow.
  • Toki Tori 2+ - It's time for adventure as you set through this very vast land in this puzzle platformer game. Playing as a cute yellow bird, you sure might get angry when facing the puzzles that get in your way.
More games, but what price?

Even though the Humble Indie Bundle X has added these new games, the price still remains at the small amount of $5.32 (USD). Keep in mind, the proceeds will, of course, go to charity, and you'll get hours of wonderful games. The charities included are Child's Play Charity and the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
