Thank you for your support! If you have any trouble with the game, don’t hesitate to send me an email (the contact into is on the right sidebar). Read on after the break for some notes about the alpha.

It’s been quite a busy month getting Starfarer ready for an alpha release. We’ve gone through no less than three UI incarnations in that time alone, as well as countless gameplay and mechanics adjustments. But now, it is finally ready!
Without further ado, allow me to present to you the Starfarer alpha.
The alpha includes 6 combat missions of varying difficulty and a tutorial. The tutorial explains combat & piloting basics, but does not touch on the “warroom” (which is the tactical interface you use to to give orders to your fleet, toggled with the Tab key). Warroom controls are roughly similar to RTS controls, but if they’re giving you trouble, your best bet might be the manual. We’ll be sure to include a warroom tutorial at some point, it’s just not in yet.
You can also do some modding, if you’re so inclined (custom missions).
