|Naikari 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.|
Naikari is a 2-D space trading and mercenary sandbox game forked from the Naev project. You pilot space ships from a top-down perspective which you can collect and customize more or less however you want. To get new ships, you can deliver cargo, hunt bounties, join and assist various factions, or even turn to piracy if you dare go against the Empire. Additionally, to keep the game feeling fresh and allow you to seek out goals beyond just getting more credits and ships, several storylines are available which you can proceed through if you wish. All storylines are optional and kept out of the way if you have no interest in them.
