The successful space game Avorion (by German indie team Boxelware) is still in Early Access on Steam. However, it has already gathered an impressive following among core gamers. The community especially loves the ship building aspect of the game – so they decided to give a shoutout to ten of the most impressive DIY-projects of the Avorion players:
A few years back, three screenwriters had the idea to make their own sci-fi space series… but they couldn’t. Sci-fi premises are usually expensive, and anything they put together would be low-budget. Then they got the idea to film the entire series from the perspective of a camera in the ship’s computer… and Personal Space was born.
The Thargoids, an alien species in the Elite: Dangerous universe, first appeared in the game almost a year ago. This first contact event surprised players, who were given no real warning that they would be coming over to their galaxy. The situations was tense but this quickly turned to intrigue when meetings between the alien ships and players were seemingly peaceful.
Space is a place that we as humans long to go to. But, it’s also the source of many potential stories.

One of the most popular types of games are those that are set in space.

Today is a historic day for solar system exploration. The European Space Agency spacecraft Rosetta ended 10 years of sailing through the solar system to come to its destination, cosmic spitting distance from comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.
Yesterday, a group of civilian scientists was able to make contact with and control a spacecraft that has been wandering alone in the solar system for decades.
