Interstellar Rift

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.

Something about this game that brings me back time and time again.
Love the devs are still working away on it so I nominated in this year's (2021) Steam Awards.
Love the music.
Love the flying through space.
Build your own ship.
Love it is MULTIPLAYER - The way all good games should be.
Love the ship gets damaged and needs repairs when in a fight.
Have even watched quite a few live casts.
Hope they keep going, an interesting Space game but better played with friends.

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!

It is astounding that only 12% of players have killed a Skrill Grunt. Or only 7% of players have opened a Rift! Yet there are so many Negative Reviews.
I started my own dedicated server, and I must say, it was easier than some other games I have set up a server for. And then in the span on a couple days I spawned into my server, and began playing the game. I mined resources and built my own ship... A ship of 3 decks, and an asteroid mining station none the less.
I then figured out how to sell stuff, and trade between stations, and then I opened a Rift and traveled to a new system.
Yeah, it took some figuring out, and it took some buildup to get into the game. But it wasn't overly hard. In fact the game is quite addicting.
Bugs? Honestly the only bugs I have noticed have been desync bugs related to the odd time a container is picked up, but doesn't register as being picked up. A server restart fixes that, but it has only happened to me twice so far.
The online player base is not too great. Only me and about 5 other people online it seems. But really, there is no reason that number shouldn't grow.
This is a great game, and it is still in development yes, but it's concepts are sound and well thought out.
I think the issue here, is that so many players these days are lazy and give up too easily. I mean really? Only 12% of people have killed a Skrill? and 7% have used a Rift... come on.

Needs some work. But a great game.

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

Review from Steam

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.

Review from Steam

Really great space game, with a "minecraft server" multiplayer feel. Building ship is complex enough that it feels like an achievement and it being your own ship, but contrary to other space game with ship building there are actually things to do with your spaceship once you have built it.
