Star Traders: Frontiers
Might contain spoilers.
A terrible UI—don’t even get me started on the illegible font—doesn’t keep this from being a very good game with first rate music. I’m not sure how well the late game works, though, as your ability to earn money peaks quickly whereas costs continue to rise for much longer. I wish the dialogue choices indicated which ones move the story forward; the game puts me in mind of a top-down, entirely spacebound No Man’s Sky , where I had the same quibble.
