I’d like to thank Reikijenosaido for today’s suggestion, which is free for one day only in celebration of its own launch. It’s called Ultraviolet Dawn and it’s an open space shooter with a trading aspect. You fly from port to port, accepting missions, shooting stuff, and gaining wealth.
It’s got some great visuals and a killer bit of music, although the shooter aspect is very much a case of flying around in circles until something dies. Still, it’s totally worth snapping up for the launch price of free, so go do that thing!
