Suit up as an operative of the Ark Corporation, sent to the farthest reaches of the universe in search of habitable planets to terraform. However, after the long space journey you awaken from cryosleep to find that your ship has gone way off course and is disabled near a strange new world. With no choice but to descend to the surface and figure out how to survive long enough to complete your mission, you step into the escape pod.
Along the way you’ll gather resources to craft armor, weapons, facilities, and vehicles to help you explore the world and conquer its aggressive inhabitants. Your base of operations will evolve from a few basic facilities exposed to the elements into a hardened fortress full of advanced technologies that let you accomplish amazing improvements to your equipment and alter the environment itself.
Be careful, though; almost everything down there wants to kill you, including fierce laser space sharks, artillery-toting polar bears, wickedly quick jetpack penguins, and even crazier horrors. Out on the Edge of Space, you must adapt or you die. Good luck, ArkCo Operative!

Edge of Space is a Kickstarter funded game inspired by the game Terraria. Some of the differences with Terraria is that you fire a laser to mine for resources and to dig into the ground instead of using a pickaxe, you also have access to a jetpack, and you can create different pets to aid you. Mining gives you experience to improve your character instead of just being done to find items. It feels easier and more fun to new players, giving you items to more easily mine and guns that can be used to fire projectiles that give off light instead of you needing to craft torches all the time. Your jetpack also helps you to escape areas that you would need to create platforms or to find other ways out of in similar crafting games, you can also upgrade your jetpack to be more efficient. The game was in Early Access for a long time, over two years, and released back in September, it still feels like it needs some work but it has been improved over time and the game is likely a good choice for people who want a crafting game that is easier to get into.
