Eager to blast some spaceships to bits on your Mac? Well, Everspace looks like it might fit the bill. This beautiful-looking shooter finds you commanding your own vessel amidst the stars, and has drawn a lot of comparisons to Microsoft’s classic genre entry, Freelancer, offering a mix of combat, looting, and even crafting.
And although it doesn’t look the part, Everspace has also been frequently likened to FTL: Faster Than Light, the much-loved roguelike strategy game. Everspace focuses more on hands-on action, but like FTL, it’s a survival challenge that tests your ability to react to unexpected threats and other curveballs. It just exited Steam Early Access with a full 1.0 version release, and reviews are very strong so far.
