It's been such a long time since we started this project, and we are so incredibly proud of what we've accomplished so far. We hope that you all love the game and have a blast with it! That being said, this is one milestone on many we have planned. Our early access journey is just starting, and we are looking forward to making this game amazing with your help. So please leave your feedback on the Steam discussion boards, it helps us tremendously!

Thank you also to all the support we've received from our testers, youtubers, and the community that is beginning to grow around this game. You all are awesome and it will be so much fun iterating this game with you over the next year.

Over the coming days our focus is going to be on fixing these known issues:

  • Random multiplayer instability
  • Need to be able to load multiplayer saves, currently not working
  • Need to have news items saved into save game files
  • Hotjoining games not working
  • Short lag spike when ordering new ships at times

Key Features:

  • Help humankind spread throughout the galaxy by managing resource flows and the supply chains needed to sustain it's growth. Balance colony expansion against resource deliveries to ensure you never bring a planet to starvation. Using a highly sophisticated and complex simulation, every decision you make can have lasting consequences throughout the entire game.
  • Interstellar Transport Company has a scientifically grounded galaxy generator which produces challenging and believable maps. Play with 1 to 300 star systems in custom game mode or use predefined game settings and try to top the leaderboards. You can even play without our solar system (replaced by a randomly generated starting system) if you want to freshen things up even more!
  • Manage cash flow, take loans and issue bonds, deal with the local authorities and maintain high reputation throughout the galaxy. Invest in developing markets and hedge your risks. Balance expenses against value to crush your competitors.
  • Play single player custom games against AI or alone with many different galaxy and difficulty settings. Or play with the predefined settings and compete on the global leaderboards. Maybe competitive multiplayer is your thing? Play a shortened balanced game against players near your own skill level. You can even play a co-op multiplayer game, teaming up with friends against the AI.
