It looks like a sequel to Starcom: Nexus.

Yeah, this doesn't look like it's at all Starsector-derivative. At most inspired by some of the same stuff?

...So to answer the question in the thread title: Yes, this looks to be okay.

Also potentially interesting, so thanks for pointing it out.

It's this.
Which itself was a sequel to the 'original' Starcom, which was a Flash game that was published in 2009.

I actually found Stasector because I got bored with the original Starcom game, which is pretty cool by the way.

I was looking around for "games like starcom" and found starsector mentioned in a thread.

Starsector is much bigger and with mods is vast/infinite. I keep coming back to it and haven't really played starcom since.

The original starcom had a pretty good storyline, tech upgrades system for the pilot and the only ship you fly is the one you build piece by piece as you learn new tech.

So to me it's really a totally different game within the same genre.

It's in the first one too, worth trying. A lot of fun, more arcade style combat and awesome that you build your ship design as you progress.

I hope no-one minds that I'm enthusiastic about another game on this forum.  ;D

I've enjoyed the Starcom: Nexus a lot. Looking forward to seeing where they take Starcom: Unknown Space.

I believe that the developer wanted to keep the modular ships from Nexus, but make them look a bit less "blocky" in a sequal. Looking good so far!
