Indie developer Digital Eel let us know that its crowd-funded 3D space exploration game, Infinite Space III: Sea of Stars is now available via Steam Early Access.
"Even as development continues, we're very excited to be able to share Sea of Stars early with Kickstarter backers and the gaming community at large," the company said today. "Steam's Early Access allows you to play work-in-progress versions of the game (new build updates are automatic), provide critical feedback and actually help shape its creation."
Much like its predecessors – Strange Adventures in Infinite Space (2002) and Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space (2005) – Infinite Space III: Sea of Stars offers turn-based space exploration, real-time starship combat and roguelike elements. Sea of Stars brings that gameplay to a 3D universe and adds interesting gameplay features that are new and exclusive.
When Infinite Space III: Sea of Stars is released it will be priced at $9.95. Infinite Space III: Sea of Stars is available via Early Access on Steam.
Digital Eel managed to raise $36,661 to develop Infinite Space III via a successful Kickstarter campaign that ended in May of 2013. The company has been working on the game ever since.
