My game is about the adventure of space travel. You blast off from your alien home planet to explore the galaxy with yourself as the captain and your crew. You are task with managing the ship and responding to events that pose threat to your ship, like an incoming asteroid field, space battles with enemy pilots, or perhaps repairing a broken part on the ship or outside (Requires spacewalk). Some events are shaped as minigames while fixing the ship events are framed as puzzles. The player maintains life aboard the ship as they travel. They will discover new planets and civilizations that require the player's help. Once a planet's problem is fixed and there is peace, the player and their crew continues on their journey finding new planets.

The player is motivated by their interest in space, just like their parents who set out into space and never returned. The player is on a mission to explore the galaxy and reach new planets, in hopes of discovering what happened to their parents. Along the way, they will learn about the stories of people and their specific planets.
I have five characters who are part of the crew, there's Lux, Jules, Orion, Phoenix, and Juno. They interact with the player aboard the ship and help out while they aren't fulfilling their daily tasks.
From a book I recently read called the loneliest Girl in the Universe and my desire for a space RPG game.
