Progressive indie publisher Modern Wolf and developer Blue Bottle Games launches a new trailer for Ostranauts: the noir spaceship-life sim, set in a solar system cut-off from a ravaged Earth. Set for launch in early-2020, Ostranauts challenges you to design your one-of-a-kind spaceship, hire crew with physical and emotional needs, enjoy detailed ship control panels and interiors, and then manage your dysfunctional crew and ship as you fend off bankruptcy… or worse!
Ostranauts is a detailed simulation of owning and living aboard a spaceship, in a solar system where honest living is a slow death sentence. Set in the NEO Scavenger universe, where Earth has suffered cataclysmic collapse, the rest of the System lives on in a state of capitalistic dystopia.

Detailed Custom Ship Design
Players can build their ship, in any shape, from functioning modular parts. The parts have physical properties, interact with each other, and can wear out over time.
Crew members have physiological and emotional needs, ranging from basal needs like food, water, oxygen, and temperature, to more esoteric needs like privacy, security, intimacy, and esteem.
