Jumped into the cockpit and will try to take off soon. Maybe I will find some good freight runs, fight some pirates or whatever the universe will offer me! ^^

Please note that the game is still in BETA phase! Because of this there are some bugs which might lead to problems playing the game. On the other hand you pay just a fraction of the normal price.

Too bad it's an MMO.

Are the Traveller RPG elements licensed?

And here answers from the devs to some of my questions and my concerns about the IAP.

I hope so ^^ Here something from their website about the team behind the game:

Marc Miller, original Traveller game designer

Marc Miller is an established, award-winning game designer. One of the founders of Game Designers’ Workshop, Marc has designed dozens of games, from World War II simulations to interplanetary travel, and received every major award for game design excellence. He has published or been involved with every version of Traveller produced, from the original Traveller pen-and-paper space role-playing game published in 1977 to the soon-to-be released Traveller5, and is excited to work with ingZ on Traveller for the mobile platform.

This looks pretty cool but the trailer makes it look very confusing? Also as a iPod touch user does this mean I can't play it as it says it uses GPS?

Wow, this looks like an --->EPIC<--- game in the works. Downloading now and will post impressions tonight or tomorrow. For .99 cents "Beta" price vs $4.99 future price, I'll skip the dollar menu burger today .

Anyone else been playing this yet???

Can I turn off the GPS option?

Wow... iPod Touch 4th gen, ios 5.0.1, NOT JAILBROKEN.

Game runs but crashes after account creation and starting new game. The HUD loads but crashes whenever I try to do something. Tried a hard reset and still a no go.

Guess I will have to wait for an update to even play? Pity, this game looks like it has tons of potential.
