      Thanks. Updated my list for missing free paid games. Not including any of the 24 free to play titles or other free content.
      9 games (Abzu, Celeste, Enter The Gungeon, Hyper Light Drifter, Inside, Into The Breach, Kingdom: New Lands, Overcooked, Torchlight II) have been given away twice.
      3 Out of 10: Season One (5 episodes) is also free to play so not sure If I should remove that?


        Nah, in my opinion leave that one in as not explicitly marked as free to play game.

    Finished this game last month!

    Here's my steam review if anyone is interested in playing it:

    After watching The Expanse, I was looking for a scifi game that would let me be a captain of a space exploration ship. I'm happy to say that this game scratched that itch and was a blast to play through.

    The Good
    + Pixel art and animation was memorable
    + Different ships are customizable have their own quirks/strengths
    + Multi-part story lets you meet different characters from the galaxy (Can be very dark and grim sometimes)
    + Ship to ship combat is decent. (Some ship's abilities are very fun while others are underwhelming)
    + Game also allows you to send troops to planets to find resources
    + Combat in the final chapter is intense!

    The Bad
    - Planet exploration scenarios can feel repetitive.
    - Pacing of the story was okay but
    - No voice acting whatsoever
    - Some ships feel underwhelming

    All in all, I would highly recommend this game if you want a story-rich space adventure. :)


    thanks op


    We must console the sad Sun's!
