Sol Trader is making an appearance at the PC Gamer Weekender on 5-6 March! Join us each day from 9:30 to 6:30 at G70 in the Gaming Zone as we show you what all the fuss is about. You'll be able to play a late beta copy of the game, which includes asteroids, mining, careers and missions.
Tickets are available here.
Latest build: a career as a... hippie?
You can now take a career with any organisation: the navy, the government, crime syndicates... even the local hippies. This opens up exciting new missions, the possibility of meeting famous and legendary characters, and travelling further through space. You can also now listen in on character's gossiping to each other, and mine different asteroids for wealth.
This build is available to insider backers at the forums.
Mining Ice Asteroids
Trying to get a job
Catching up on the latest gossip
We're in the final stages. After finishing off asteroids and mining, I'm working on the full list of mineable and tradeable goods that will appear in the game. After that, I'll be adding ship customisation and the full solar system. Then we're on the road to launch!
Until next time,
