Sea of Stars is a starship roguelike, a sandbox adventure game of interstellar exploration and combat. Travel from star to star, upgrade your ship with new systems and weapons, build up your flotilla with allies and mercenaries, and take on a variety of alien menaces.

Sea of Stars continues the Infinite Space series of games that defined the genre of short-form space roguelikes in Strange Adventures in Infinite Space (2001) and Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space (2005). It compresses a galaxy-spanning starship adventure into the space of a single sitting, but as the game world is randomly generated each time you play, you will keep coming back for more. There is enough variety in items, aliens and special encounters that you will always discover something new - no two sessions play the same.

Sea of Stars begins in the Glory star system, in an area of space known as the Purple Void for its colorful nebular clouds. The long-isolated Terran colony of Hope has discovered the secret of faster-than-light travel, and an age of interstellar adventure has begun. Choose your starship and blast off into the Infinite Space in search of fame and fortune! Travel from star to star, explore planets and discover strange lifeforms and artifacts left behind by ancient empires. Find technology to upgrade your ship and gain allies to grow your flotilla. Encounter bizarre and delightful alien races, trade with them or blow them up - the decision is yours. And sometimes, you will face an existential threat to all life in the sector, and get to save the world.


Always good to see a classic series continue to keep at it alongside yet another KS success.   8)

Seasons greetings from the Purple Void!
Let's start the holidays right with a Sea of Stars update!

To celebrate the traditional Terran solstice festival, Digital Eel is proud to announce a great new update for Infinite Space III: Sea of Stars!

The new version 1.1.0 introduces totally re-vamped mod support with a handy browser for launching mods, and now lets mod makers access the built-in editing tools that we used to make content for the game.

We have also added new content to the game in the form of a new special quest featuring a special guest, the notorious Tiberian swamp pirate Arch Fenster! Oh, and just possibly a ship from that other space roguelike-like game created by one of our Kickstarter backers may make an appearance!*

For all of our Steam fans, this update just keeps on giving by adding over fifty achievements, as well as Steam trading cards, badges (not steenking), profile backgrounds and emoticons!

Sea of Stars will be updated to the new version on Friday (today), December 18. Get it from STEAM, IndieGameStand (DRM-free) or the Humble Store (Steam or DRM-free). Non-DRM users may download a v1.1.0 Windows patch HERE.

May the Star-Krampus be gentle!

Ripcord out.
