-I downloaded from a 'freegames.com' type of website when I was really young in the early 2000's. Graphics seemed very MS-DOS looking.

-Very similar to No Man's Sky, every star, planet, thing you could see you could travel to and land on, but you couldn't move freely there, just the animation of the ship traveling their at warp speed would play.

-Your ship was a simple futuristic 3D cube, but like a near flattened/1 storied cube, with window covering most of each of wall inside the ship

-The interface and inside of ship was very minimalist, very beautiful and well thought of game for its time!

-You could walk freely inside the ship

-You could call upon other explorers in the game that I believe, would fix your ship or something? (was too young at the time to understand what was happening) you wouldn't meet the pilot of the ship face to face but just the ship would arrive and you could see it outside your window, and it was rectangular cube like your one and a light would emanate from their ship scanning/possibly re-energizing your ship or something and then it would take off. Was really amazing when it happened, really felt like you were alone traveling in space but their were people you could call upon, but only
while you were in space to my knowledge.

-When landing on a planet you could freely walk around, some planets were inhabited by lone puma, lioness looking entities that would just run in one direction, they wouldn't react to you, they were more just for you to look at.

-All of this you could do on this very old game! It was amazing for its time, very minimalistic , eerie and mysterious, infinite, no music, but there were sfx I believe.

Thank you!
