According to the description of this game on its page on Steam:

Galactic Crew II is a roguelike sci-fi exploration game that takes place in a procedurally generated galaxy full of ruthless criminals, notorious pirates, monsters, miners, and merchants. With nary any credits or crew, you have to acquire goods, mine, and loot to build up your spaceship and crew to contend with the harshness of this galaxy. A wrong decision could bring death to you and your crew. Will you risk your life and ship to obtain the goods you need to survive this galaxy?

You can watch the trailer for Galactic Crew II on YouTube below!

Features for this game include the ability to explore various different procedurally-generated planets, customize your ship however you please, and a whole galaxy's worth of raidable areas in the worlds you come across.
