About the game Endless Sky

Work your way up from a relatively wimpy shuttle, cargo ship, or fighter, to a highly upgraded and customized flagship or to a massive fleet of warships or freighters. Earn money by carrying passengers or cargo, escorting convoys, bounty hunting, or plundering and capturing enemy ships.

Take sides in a civil war, or ignore the story line and just enjoy exploring the galaxy and blasting pirates. The main story line takes about 8-16 hours to play through. The galaxy contains hundreds of star systems and planets, and several alien species with their own unique technologies.

You can choose between more than fifty ships and several hundred ship upgrades. Anyone with a text editor and a paint program can create new ships, weapons or missions.

'Galaxy-editor' allows users to add their own star systems and planets in to the game.
