Fancy your FTL with a side of The Sims? If you’re looking for a space sim with a more distinct personality than perhaps it’s worth taking a detour into Cosmonautica.
Players must of course battle against enemy space ships, but they’re also tasked with managing their crew. Mainly, though, you’re going to want to work out deals with a multitude of aliens to improve your ship and fund continued space exploration.
Cosmonautica is available in Early Access right now for $9.99 and will increase in price when it launches on July 31. So, if you’re interested, it’s probably best to just buy right now as the full price will be set at $14.99.
