Objects in Space is a modempunk stealth space-trading game
Similar to submarine warfare, combat in Objects in Space is slow, tactical, and all about careful maneuvering and stealth. Visual sight is useless when encounters occur millions of miles apart; magnetic, radioactive, and other sensors are your eyes in this game. Using the environment to your advantage is key: asteroid fields can muddle up sensors, high polar orbits can hide your ship's signal and nebulas are good places to set up ambushes. Projectiles take time to cross space, allowing for situations where you're desperately powering up jump drives as enemy missiles approach or shutting down systems to mask your energy output and stealthily re-position.
Objects in Space is currently in development and is expected to release in 2016. You can learn more about the game and follow its progress here.
