Spacebase DF-9 Early Access

Spacebase DF-9 is now available for Steam Early Access, announces Steam News, saying Windows, OS X, and Linux gamers can purchase access to Double Fine's upcoming sci-fi construction game and help influence its development going forward. Here's the quick pitch on the game:
In Spacebase DF-9, you'll build a home among the stars for a motley population of humans and aliens as they go about their daily lives. Mine asteroids, discover derelicts, and deal with the tribulations of galactic resettlement in Earth's distant future. Meteor impacts! Explosive decompression! Unbearable loneliness!

This was one of the games in the double fine amnesia fortnight that I was most hoping would be made into a full game. And it is!!!

Reminds me of Startopia!!!!

Me too. Great little-known gem that one.
Man I love that game!!

Also Space Colony is another fun one.

Startopia arrived on steam recently:

I've not tried to figure out what version is on steam, 1.01 was the last official patch, then there was 1.02 with shadows. I'm trying to remember what else there was... seems like there was a semi official mod with content add, but I could be misremembering.

Looks cool, but as others have said, I'll wait until it's done.

I think we've crossed the threshold, and there are now more incomplete games being sold, than complete games. I'm tired of it.

Yeah, were I younger, and had no family, I would actually enjoy participating in alphas or betas for certain kinds of games like RTS or TBS so I could maybe have some input in the design. But I have only time to play complete games these days.

why does everything look so dark in the screen grabs?

I also felt it was too dark in the game. Of course it's dark when the lights are out (ie, the room isn't done or some emergency is going on), but even after that it still feels a bit dark. It also took some effort/learning to get the room building to line up the way I like. This would be solved by being able to rotate the map.

That does look pretty cool. I can wait until the game is finished though.

Out of all the DF clones I've played, this one probably has the best interface. Might be because it's only a single level in height (as far as I've seen). Like most Early Access games, it's buggy as hell. Looks like it'll be fun though if you're in to DF.
