Pioneer is a space adventure game set in the far future in our galaxy.
Players may choose their path as traders, explorers, pirates or bounty hunters. There are several factions, each faction having an extensive history and social system described on the Pioneer Wiki.
Once being a clone of Elite II: Frontier, the game is now becoming a new game, still in the spirit of Frontier but with new ships, stations, factions and improvements in the GUI and other areas of the game.
Pioneer is developed using the git model. The major decisions, however, are made in privacy by a core team which calls itself "benevolent dictators".
