Epic Space Online hosts players in a single universe with absolutely no borders or boundaries. You can fly in any direction in a procedurally generated universe.
The game is incredibly deep with too many aspects to cover at once, but anyone can scratch the surface and start flying, trading, and building space stations now. (Soon on the iPad)
About the Project:
We're going to be bringing Capital Ships to Epic Space Online. These will be the largest ships in the game and will require not just you to operate, but an actual crew of real people!
This has never been done before in a 2D Space game and will be a significant feat. But the end result will be a ship flyable by anyone, where you can transport goods, people, and anything else you can think of across the universe.
This is going to be an add on to an already in depth game that's playable right now.
The Transport Ship (Crewed by You and Others)
The expansion will include Carrier and Destroyer Capital ships.
- One shared persistent sandbox/universe.
- No Borders or Boundaries, fly in any direction.
- Mining, piracy, industry.
- Build and deploy space stations.
- Deep crafting with hundreds of craftable items.
- Unlimited Exploration.
- Weekly Updates / Features.
- 100% Player Driven.
- Dozens of different ships.
- Randomly generated content.
- Epic Space Battles over an insane amount of territory.

Risks and challenges
Edward Melville and his team are creating gameplay aspects that have never been seen before; as proven with the Epic Space Online game currently live now. We wanted to create a universe that's infinite and never ending. Now we want to have players share their experiences on a single ship in this universe.
It's a bold goal, but even with limited means we've come this far.
Capital ships are the next step in Epic Space Online's evolution, one way or another this will happen.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
