Any underdog free trader games?
« on: February 10, 2016, 05:36:56 PM »
Are there space games that you all have encountered where you're not allowed to fly wherever you want? Like imagine the current version of ASCII where the pirates run everything, and you have to sneak from place to place to try to get past patrols, rather than going to pretty much every spot and only getting trouble if you run illegal goods. Or imagine playing a Han Solo type during the time around Episode IV, where you've got pressures from employers and authorities while the rebel organization is making the authorities clamp down on things.

You tend to run into free trader games where things are pretty unrestricted in that respect. I think that added tension might make things more interesting. I'm not quite thinking of stuff like Starflight by the way, but I guess that's as close as I've played since space isn't policed. And I don't mean EVE, I guess. Just single player stuff.
