Tech Guide

Techs are skills usable by the player which cause enhancements to your character, or to the nearby area. Examples could include Energy Dash which causes your character to move left or right extra fast with a blurring effect, or Pulse Jump, enabling you to have an extra boost when jumping.

Tech is available through the Tech Station on the Ship computer and must be unlocked with a blank tech card. More techs will become availabe once you upgrade your ship

To equip your Tech, access the ship's Tech Station, and equip any discovered Tech.

While you can have up to four Techs selected in at a time.
