Chasing Carrots is trying to combine space trading and life simulations with Cosmonautica. They recently released the above gameplay footage, which shows off a little bit of everything the game has to offer.

They've made steady progress since our preview article. The newest build has added things like illegal goods and a variety of space station traits that add a lot to the depth of gameplay. Not having a repairman on your crew, for example, could make a run to the outer edge of the galaxy dangerous if the destination doesn't have a shipyard.

Cosmonautica is slated for a Q2 release for Windows PC. Chasing Carrots has plans to release it on XBLA, PSN, iOS, and Androids, as well, though there is no estimated release date for those platforms at this time.
