Endless Sky is a free game. This means that the source code is available to be studied, modified, and distributed. Most projects look for help with testing, documentation, graphics, etc., as well.

Endless Sky is a space exploration, trading and combat game inspired by the old proprietary game Escape Velocity. Players can earn money by trading, carrying passengers, and completing missions. It is also possible to go pirate hunting and participate in a civil-war. Or one can go exploring, leave human space behind, and hope to find some friendly aliens whose culture is more civilized than your own...[3]


The player has just taken a bank loan and can choose which of three available spacecraft to purchase. Thereafter you head out into the galaxy making a profit to pay the exorbitant interest by whatever means—if you can.
Three powers are apparent in the galaxy: The Republic, the Syndicate, and powerful but somewhat suspiciously non-aggressive aliens known as the Quarg. A civil war soon breaks out within the Republic. At present the story line to help the rebels—the "Free Worlds"—is the only one which can be played. Numerous shorter quests can also be found by hanging around in space ports.
