      It was a cool game, though I remember that I stopped playing it because after a while I had completely forgotten where to go next or something and didn't feel like trying to piece that all together. I should get back to it, considering that it's been 5 years.

    No such thing. All indie games are shit just by virtue of being indie. You need a real budget and good marketing to make a good game.

      Indies are overwhelmingly shit because there's no barrier to entry. Any Tom, Dick and Harry can make an indie game and put it on some storefront, and because of that, there's a shitload of shovelware.

      Rarely, there's an indie game that is actually good, but the vast majority aren't.

    crosscode is a boring grindy game with a ton of frustrating mechanics but its pretty and has really nice music so I hope the devs get their shit together with the next game

          well maybe it's my ADHD retardbrain but I tried playing it and it's literally just checking documents. Is there actual gameplay later on?

        How 2 Starsector, 101
        >acquire fleet
        >go near pirate bases full of lots of shit
        >turn off your identifier and use the black market to avoid taxes wholesale and get better prices
        >buy whatever the fuck is cheap but usually, stuff like biotics or mercenaries are in good supply
        >check your comodities market and see where there's a demand
        >if its luddic land, have a big fuckoff fleet and just waltz in with no comms because while they are aggro, they won't really fuck with those they can't beat, so sell in the black market
        >if its more civilized sectors, open up your comms but slap a good few bits on the black market and offload on the normal one
        >Techbros sell lots of drugs for cheap usually, Ludds sell a lot of food, independants are great for raiding with mercs, same with Pirates, a good investment in cargo ships and a force can get you steady supplies and selling material, the Diktat gets you lobsters for fucking days and shit's great, rest are kinda ehh
        >check every single fucking port and pray to RNG for a transporting cargo mission to a place that won't kill your ass since they give you everything to carry and then give you a good deal when you do deliver
        >Check opportunities and jobs on the market and try to get as many good gigs as humanly possible
        >scan everything, get a good colony, invest the dolla from this advice and make a really good fucking fleet and cash flow
        >Never ever go into combat without a plan, a lot of good ships, a lot of good guns and some experience you can get inside the free holo testing grounds in every station
        >The rest is just game feel and understanding stuff. Oh also, explore black hole locations, places are fucking loot filled.

        Good luck.

    stoneshard could've been good if they hadn't decided to make it more and more difficult with bullshit mechanics.

        Yes it is. Just not the full game, same case with FF7R
        >and it's shaping up to be trash
