How much would a decent intergalactic starship cost? If you said $10,000, you are totally dreaming -- but you also might be in luck if you're willing to settle for a mere video game. A new indie project, Starship Empire, is asking for $10K on Kickstarter to purchase better artwork for this stellar ship simulator.
Starship Empire gives you command of not only your own ship but a crew as well, and then it sets you loose to trade, explore, and get into a whole heck of a lot of real-time PvP fights. The big twist with this game is that a lot of the action takes place inside the ship as you order your crew around. The developer is billing it as "Star Control meets FTL plus multiplayer."
