Spacebase DF-9 is a space-station sim from Double Fine

Double Fine has a space-themed sim game in the works, and its origin can be traced back to the studio's Amnesia Fortnight game jam last year. While the concept of running a space station is still in tact, Spacebase DF-9 has been "overhauled from the ground up." It's available right now for Windows, Mac, and Linux on Steam Early Access.

The animations are underwhelming in their current state, but I like the sound of this. Prices start off at $25 for the base game, with additional tiers offering the soundtrack, extra Double Fine games, and other bonuses. The team also has a big list of features it would like to add, should you want to trace where Spacebase DF-9 is headed. I'm sure feedback would be appreciated.

The press release for the game references "space madness," by the way. Have to give props.

An extended look from project lead JP LeBreton:

I'm totally gonna murder some amber waves of grain

Videogames are largely about power fantasies that real life simply can't provide. That's why 98 percent of games (rough estimate) are centered around a man with a gun that knows no bounds to save the country that he loves. P...more
