I need some help trying to identify what game this was I played a few years back. I figure what better place to come than on here!
It was a top-down, 2d space sim/RPG. If I remember right it was either in beta or had a free demo available that let you do quite a bit but not fully explore the game.
You could trade resources, upgrade ships and follow the story as you went from one port to the next. The unique part about the game was that the story was actually worth following, but was pretty open to exploration.
Lets see, if I remember right, it was a seperate download, not browser based game. The graphics were small but still rather sharp. I had it about 6 or so years ago and even then I think it was somewhat old.
