If you're in the mood to explore space, you're in luck. After the release of the demo last month, The Last Starship is now on Steam Early Access. The game has players choose a ship hull and then kit her out with different features, including engines, sensors, railguns, and life-support. Right now, it's being offered at a 10% discount until February 23.
