Ascii Sector is a space trading and combat game with a few RPG elements. Combat in space is realtime, while character combat on the ground or on board a spaceship is turn-based. Players can earn credits to upgrade their ship, either by trading goods, taking on missions or pirating. The game currently has no plot, but players can create their own quests to share with other players using a relatively simple script syntax and the built-in quest compiler. There are plans to add an overarching plot and endgame, which will see the player getting involved in shady business and finally building up his own fleet to take over the entire game universe.
