We’ve just dropped a trailer, 10 minute video walkthrough, new podcast and created a Google form for beta signups (beta will be late May, Early Access launch will be 21st of June).
I’m exhausted but relieved.
Here are the things:

Video Walkthrough: https://youtu.be/YsaSIglPnXs
New Podcast Ep: http://objectsgame.com/podcast-in-space/
I’ll refrain from doing my usual podcast summary here because this time we figured that with a big announcement there’d likely be a bunch of new people who don’t know much about the game checking it out, so we just spend the whole episode describing the game in some detail.
BUT we did mention a few things we’ve been keeping quiet until now which won’t be there on EA launch day but we plan to add before 1.0:
Sandbox mode - Endless play without the narrative elements for those who are in it for the systems and/or combat
Single player scenarios - Challenge scenarios which are combat-focused
Multiplayer scenarios - As above but made for multiple players. We’ve only got it working over LAN so far, but co-op and competitive scenarios have been tested and we’ll roll them out as soon as we can.
Wanna see a ship which isn’t the Ceres (the one we’ve been showing for years) and also shots from on actual space stations?
