    Fugitive Games has created a unique twist for typical space strategy games, and what they have will appeal to many looking for something that isn’t Elite Dangerous or a typical real-time strategy game set in space.

    Into the Stars is a fun adventure with a bit of everything (strategy, action, adventure). It would be just a bit better with improved UI, though. Regardless, it's certainly worth a look.

    Overall, I’m genuinely impressed by Into the Stars. It’s a fun game that’s easy to control and learn, but provides enough depth that strategy fans will likely get a kick out of this, along with more casual players.

    Into the Stars is a gorgeously-rendered sibling of FTL, featuring all the tension of collecting resources and fighting space aliens with none of the tedious micromanagement.

Game feels like work, tiresome, boring ass work, without any rewarding moments to speak of. Flying the ship, boring, exploring planets, boring, getting in to combat, unbelievably boring.

    Well, unfortunately this is as bad as others have made it out to be.

    Battled with a lagging interface to finally get full screen and resolution set correctly.

    No tutorial. Asked to select crew, given list, why would I do anything other than chose the best for each category? Made it to first planet, went into orbit. Went to deploy 'mining probe thing' - informed this would cost 75.

    SEVENTY FIVE WHATS? Units, people, include units, like you were taught in first year university.

    Stopped playing in case it was 75 years off my life, or seventy five more dollars for a game that HAS NO TUTORIAL.

    Avoid.

    El juego es aburrido y al mismo tiempo estresante, mencionan que no tienes que dedicarle mucho tiempo al micro manejo, pero la verdad es queEl juego es aburrido y al mismo tiempo estresante, mencionan que no tienes que dedicarle mucho tiempo al micro manejo, pero la verdad es que solo cuentas con 6 miembros de la tripulación para resolver conflictos internos de la nave, si alguno muere es IMPOSIBLE reponerlo de la población, el juego te obliga a recuperarlo desde alguna mision en la superficie de un planeta o luna, que dicho sea de paso, es absurdo que solo permita 3 intentos.

    Cuando llegas al final no hay alguna animación, ni pantalla de créditos, siento que el juego está sin terminar, me pareció más una beta.
