No patches since March and that was version 0.34.03.05 and in fact, launching the game now states version 0.35 (ea).
There were so many promised features and it had a lot of promise which is a shame because it is playable in this state and quite fun for a short while, but that doesn’t justify paying for an incomplete product that is now going nowhere.
Stay well clear.
So this is a fun game. Combat is fast, there are a lot of fun weapons and abilities, and tons of loot.
Sadly, it was released in an incomplete and buggy state. It’s not been patched in months, still missing one of its three classes, lacking promised features such as crafting, and still lists itself internally as an early access beta build.
If you like ARPGs, maybe get it on deep sale, or in a bundle, but know it’s not finished, and isn’t likely to ever be.

Abandoned EA. Current version lacks features and, most important, it lacks balance.
So far I really like this game. Still very early access, but playable and I’ve still spent hours flying around and blowing stuff up. Developers have a lot planned, with placeholders still all around the game, but the mechanics are pretty solid. Hopefully they work on making the game much MUCH harder, but otherwise I can wait for incremental updates and features.
Pros: Loot, special powers, loot. Stuff goes boom! Pretty graphics. Loot. Did I mention boom? BOOM!
Cons: Stupid easy – I’m not sure I can die. Expected early access type bugs.
I beat the game after 8.5 hours using the scout class.
I played on the highest difficulty (Ace) out of 4.
-It’s well worth $10 especially if they are adding more content and tweaking what is already there.
-Great ship controls, the overall gameplay mechanics feel very solid.
-Multiple classes with different playstyles.
-Solid graphics and artstyle to match what the game is going for.
-Great performance on my rig (CPU: FX-8320 ; GPU: gtx 1070) -100fps-
-Great loot system, that can only get better with future updates.
-Loot doesn’t despawn, causing massive framerate drops after extended play (reloading fixes the issue, it’s not that big a problem)
-The enemies are the simplest of AI and pose no challenge.
-Highest difficulty has no difference from normal (You will one shot everything, even the final boss)
-I never went under 100% health.
-The questing is incredibly repetitive (the same exact quests over and over).
-The story isn’t so much bad as it is simple, which I have no issue with given that there were more set pieces and more of an actual campaign.(currently the story quests are no different than side quests)
-There is no crafting in the game yet, yet it lets you upgrade your crafting areas to max (just wasting money)
-The store page says there are set items in the game, I have yet to find one.
-The looting all boils down to how much precision you have (it’s the only stat that changes damage for the most part)
All things said, I genuinely enjoyed the game and am happy to have come across it.
I recommend it to anyone who enjoy ARPG titles such as Diablo or want a simple space sim that will let them turn their mind off for a bit.
Honestly at $10, you won’t get a better game.
Most of the issues I have will probably be patched in the following weeks. So stay tuned for an updated version.
Origin Space is a great game with there new update im playing a lvl 46 scout on ace and its really fun love building my ship with drops and skills trying out what works and what dosent lol the update made the game so fun with daredevil lvls of difficulty to keep you blasting for countless hrs and game is still incomplete I havent had this mutch fun since diablo 2 to the people that are working on this game im in love lol def worth the 10 bucks all day
As surprising as this may sound; from what I had expected, Origin Space actually exceeded my expectations, and here’s why:
From the first look it looks like an unfinished piece of work rough around the edges, that still needs a lot of improvement, but it’s not. After all it’s still in early access and no, it’s doesn’t feel and play like many big titles, 50$ triple A games… but it’s a blast to kill some time. It doesn’t really stand out in any particular category ( graphics, story-telling, gameplay,… ) What makes it good is that it’s got a little bit of everything. The game’s play style reminds you of those retro top-down space shooters, that have by now almost been forgotten already… The controls are simple to use and the graphics are solid, but they can be improved. If you fall into the story a little bit, it’s kind of cool, but it won’t have you watching any cutscenes and cinematic videos at all, it’s pretty much all dialog most of the time. The customization part of the game is the thing that really stood out to me so far: It makes the game more interesting, when you have lots of options on improving and customizing your spaceship, as well as the way of choosing different classes, that require different strategies and approach to the combat. The only thing that might bother some people is, that it might not be worth the price, but from my point of view it won’t dissapoint you.
To sum it all up; it’s a good game to pick up, when you want to take a break from some bigger multiplayer and intense games that wore your nerves out too much. It has a lot of potential and it hopefully gets more support in the future.
