Interstellar Rift is an open world Starship Simulator with an emphasis on ship construction and multi-player interaction. Players can explore and conquer the galaxy with their own custom designed and constructed starship. Space is vast, but you don’t have to face it alone, other players will be able to join your crew, and help out, or build their own rival fleet and fight you across the galaxy.

Prepare to make these custom built spaceships your home when exploring the galaxy! Use the ship editor to design a ship to your liking, from small exploratory vessels to large cargo haulers, or even enormous battleships. With the editor you build your ship deck by deck, inside and outside. If you'd rather get going immediately you can always browse the workshop for ships that other players made, or you can upload your own blueprints.

The galaxy can be a dangerous place, even when playing solo. Strange rifts have opened up, unleashing a hostile race of alien creatures called the Skrill. If left unchecked, they will take over solar systems wreaking havoc on your enterprising. You can fight them alone, or call in the help of your friends, and man a ship together. But not all pilots will fight for a good cause, pirates and opposing fleets can come after you and your cargo at any time. Fight them ship versus ship, or hack your way aboard their vessels and bring the fight to them, in close quarters shootouts.

The economy of Interstellar Rift runs on the resources that can be gathered out in the galaxy. Vast asteroid belts circle planets and solar systems, filled with precious ores and minerals. Start up your resource extractors, or send out a wave of mining drones to do the hard labour for you. Visit the stores of LogiCorp and Galactic Trade, or drive a hard bargain with stranded pilots as you delive them fuel. Automate production lines with the ACTR (automated cargo transfer relay), and set up your own store to trade with other players, or any trade drones that might be nearby.

After choosing a faction to ally with, the galaxy is open for you to explore. Use rift generators to open up spatial rifts that transport you to new systems, exploring a system will help you map out the galaxy, and pinpoint the location of systems with special resources you might need. Construct new trade posts for the companies and factions that want to expand their influence, and help them set up secure stations and sectors. Take on missions for U-nits, or find good deals across multiple systems to make a profit from.

This game is very underrated. I've played Elite Dangerous, but this game, tough the graphics are outdated, has allot more under the hood then most space games. System management, players can take roles as a crew member in a self made ship, You can actually recreate any spaceship/crewrole in the SF universe. It's best to play it in coop. You can still enjoy the game by yourself, but it's easy-er to devide tasks. It does not compare to space engineers in any way. The ship editor is a top down view, it reminds me of building in a strategy game or the Sims. Also, I hope there will be a #2 because this game has so much potential. Another thing, it runs as smooth as rocket league on a 15y old PC. My fellow nerds, buy this!!!

Needs more NPCS and Life with an update to the skybox. ok now that the wishes are out of the way pretty solid 7/10 game. haven't gotten super into it deep or even remotely finished it yet so that could change still. I think it could be a absolutely solid multi-crew MP space game for sure. Captain = check, Crew, ammo loader & engineers = apply today!

Needs some work. But a great game.

So first up this game doesn't have a learning curve it has a learning wall that you head butt constantly but once you break that wall it gets fun.
Yes you will have to juggle power management and constantly watch you fuel but that's half the fun.
You can walk around you ship and stations.
You can build your own ship if you want.
Workshop integration for ships
The learning curve
Flight controls for ships can be hit and miss until you get used to them.
If you want instant gratification don't buy this because the grind is real but give the game a chance and you will love it.

It's a fun game but I wish the ship building was better

Needs a bigger player base, however, this game is amazingly fun to play. Great with friends!

Review from Steam

I really like this game. I wish there were more people playing online.
The ships have lots of displays and devices to control things so that multiple people can be useful at the same time on the same ship. Things would be easier if I had a companion to help run my ship.
Fighting NPCs (pirates and aliens) has been very interesting, with your ship shaking and fires breaking out as devices get too damaged. I recently installed sprinklers in many of my ship's rooms to help combat that.
Using warp is also really fun, and feels good.
You can also collaborate with shared vaults for crew mates and fleets at NPC bases.
You also can get boarded by other players in PvP zones, but I haven't had any experience with that.
I guess the ship designer isn't as flexible as some, but it's the right level for me, with a clear distinction between inside and outside
