Title screen
The appearance of your starting ship is based on the race you choose at the beginning of the game...
... For example, the aquatic Hylotl species starts off with a fish-themed spaceship.
You can explore all sorts of terrains and biomes, including this peaceful forest area...
As well as dangerous, lava-filled caves.
Sometimes, you can find other forms of civilization (such as this Apex base) while exploring the numerous planets.
The NPCs have unique things to say to characters from different species.
Weather effects are also incorporated into the game, as well as hunger.
Once you're ready to visit to visit a new planet or galaxy, (and if you have enough fuel) your ship can take you there in seconds!
