Spacebase DF-9, one of Double Fine’s Amnesia Fortnight game prototypes, has been released through Early Access via the official website and through Steam.

The game tasks the player with building and operating their very own space station filled with beings, the needs of which you will have to meet.

Players start off with three beings and will have to build, mine and expand upon the station, all the while dealing with whatever the universe throws at you: sickness, asteroids, and the like.

The team has all sorts of thing planned for the game along with additional goodies it would like to add to it over time – all posted through the link.

Double Fine has released a wiki on the game, showing all sorts of things included.

If you drop $25 you will get a copy of the Alpha build for PC, Mac, and Linux; however there are other tiers available which offer more.

Project lead JP LeBreton has produced a trailer detailing more about the project and it is posted below alongside the Early access launch trailer.

    The sprites just make it look weird. That’s kinda keeping me from buying in. Neat concept and all. Reminds me of Star Command.

    I do love the look of this. I even like the weird super-deformed look of the sprites. My only concern is the alien races — if I buy into something like this, I want interesting aliens. The Star Control series was brilliant for weird aliens, but so many people opt for really unimaginative, dull aliens that just aren’t interesting at all. (So why bother with alien races in the first place?)

    And that kind of bums me out. So I’ll wait to see whether they have interesting looking alien races before I buy into this one. If they do, I’m sold, because I really dig the aesthetics. I just don’t want to buy into another space game that has boring aliens, because that’s sending the wrong wallet-message.

    Maybe I’m the only one that feels this way — but if you’re going to do a space game, and you’re going to include aliens, the least you could do is make them interesting.
