The Captain just released.
A decision based point & click adventure game with exploration elements and optional turn based space combat.
Tried the start and this is quite interesting. Exceptionally well done on a technical level. Great pixel graphics.
You get flung far away by an accident and have to return to Earth. You move relatively freely on a space map. Different locations are short-ish point & click mini adventures.
Puzzles have decision points and alternate solutions that impact the game in various ways. You might for example get a new crew member for your voyage, or that person might not be willing to join you, or you might accidentally (or intentionally) kill them. You collect achievements for the various story threads you picked. The game promises some larger scale decisions and results concerning the fate of entire civilizations.
Space combat is a turn based management challenge with a seemingly decent amount of depth, including an economy system to upgrade your ship and special abilities.
While not terrible so far the writing has been not as exceptional as the technical side. A somewhat generic story and world on the level of below average Star Trek episodes. The atmosphere is good as long as you don’t think about anything too hard.
The pixel graphics are gorgeous but the design of say your ship and some other world elements is kind of …mediocre.
Overall pretty neat though.
