Pioneer, a space adventure game set in the milkyway galaxy at the turn of the 31st century.
The game is open-ended, and you are free to explore the millions of star systems in the game. You can land on planets, slingshot past gas giants, and burn yourself to a crisp flying between binary star systems.
When Pioneer is finished there will be many ways to make ends meet: piracy, smuggling, bounty-hunting, mining, doing missions for the various factions fighting for power, freedom or self-determination.
"We occasionally make alpha releases of Pioneer to showcase recent developments and to get feedback and ideas. We'd love for you to take Pioneer for a spin, but you should be aware that this game is not finished, has very few missions and other gameplay aspects and will crash and exhibit other weirdness."
The latest release is Alpha 26, released 14 September 2012.
