Dawnstar is an action-oriented spacesim RPG by Wraith Entertainment that puts players right in the middle of an organized crime war.

Taking on the role of a young pilot looking to make a name for himself, you brush off the warnings of your peers and get involved in a war of organized crime. The story unravels in a branching, non-linear fashion that allows players to control their destinies as they make key decisions as they venture through the Dawnstar region. The decisions you make not only impact the story, but also the relationships you forge with your colleagues and companions. You can position yourself to push back against the lawless nature of Dawnstar, or slowly plant the seeds of deception to attempt to reign over the sector yourself.

Cruising through space in Dawnstar is a delightful experience.

Dawnstar’s non-linear story not only provides different players different ingame experiences, it also improves the replayability of the game for those inclined to try and take a different path to infamy. Furthermore, the game’s wonderfully shaded visuals are a pleasure to look at as planets glisten and stars twinkle while you blast your way through enemy forces. The rpg-inspired inventory and loot systems also reward players for their efforts in battle, as you pick up items and armaments to augment your ship’s firepower and abilities. The game’s developer Wraith Entertainment has also worked hard to continually improve on the game’s core mechanics, as upwards of eight post-launch patches have already been applied to the game, improving the experience for new players. Finally, Dawnstar features 4-player cooperative multiplayer that promises to give friends a reason to take on the mafias together. If you’re looking for a co-operative game that lets you and your friends decide the fate of an entire region of colonized space, then hop into your ship and set off to Dawnstar.
