Captain Jameson Alpha, by Farbs

Farbs has released an alpha version of Captain Jameson, the latest game in his Captain Forever series. Jameson has a lot of new features, including asteroids that block your path and large docking stations where you can sell scrap and buy add-ons, among other things. By far the most important station is the oxygen station, though – your oxygen levels deplete quickly and it takes many trips to explore even the perimeter of your starting area. New stations can be unlocked by trying to dock with them and defeating the guardian ships that appear.

    Thanks Derek! I was just about to mention this in the announcements thread :D

    It's like the internet KNEW I'd just cashed a paycheck…

    Certified fun.  Cellulose seal of approval.  (I've been helping test this.)  The short life of the oxygen tank may be a little bothersome until you get used to it, though.

    This is a great moment to return to the Captain Forever's universe.

    Minecraft rip-off

    The oxygen mechanic really breaks up the action. Is it in place to limit the distance you can explore?

    hey farbs how about making one more of them available for free? would be a good PR push methinks

    I believe I am now the first person to beat this game.  :B

    Alpha 0.2 is up! I've loosened the oxygen restriction and added oxy storage modules. There are also lots of other little tweaks.

  • Farbs

    I've thought about it, but unfortunately there's already this weird expectation that all the games will eventually be free. I need to counter that :/
