Stranded in Space

Stranded in Space is one of the games I'm making. I like to describe it as a story-based survival game. The goal of the game is to travel from planet to planet, ship to ship, station to station and survive in space with a minimal crew. Each location brings new surprises and adds to the story that keeps the crew going through the galaxy in hopes of finding someplace hospitable to live out the rest of their days.

 

The premise is that a deadly virus spread across a colony ship. The ship's android managed to save two members of the population from faulty cryostasis pods by repairing them before the people within froze to death. Years later, after the virus finally died off, they decide to awaken the two people. Soon after, the ship is boarded by a crew of space pirates who abandon their leader and take off. Together, the four must survive and find somewhere to live.

Thank you!

I am thinking of a turn-based system, but I need to consider a few things before I make up my mind. I would like to make this a commercial game, but I don't have the money to pay someone for the use of a script or pay someone to make the script. I am open to other options until I finalize it.

I have spent a while practicing. I do not expect any part of it to be easy. I am still on the basic designing part of the game and it's hard! haha I just hope the game is as good as I want it to be and as interesting as you both say it sounds.
