CDF Ghostship is a Sci-fi first person shooter & Survival horror set in a huge FREE ROAMING space craft, space station and colony base.

We don't have much choice with these sort of games today and we don't have a free roaming one! Our vision is bring you a fun, scary, highly re-playable sci-fi game like the older games such as Doom, System shock, Dead Space, Aliens, Natural Selection etc. There are some good ones out there but we want to do a few things new such as a free roaming game and a real first person mode with a helmet view for extra realism and atmosphere.

As well as the free roaming aspect aliens, zombies and mutants will never spawn in the same place like most games, its totally random! Every new game you play is different! There are also random events and much more so more than likely you will experience and find things other players may not.

We have been working hard on CDF Ghostship for the last 2 years and are looking forward to releasing what our tiny dev team have accomplished with no funds. We want to turn an awesome indie game into an epic indie game and in the last stage of development we are looking to include a huge free roaming space station as well as the ship. We aim to add multiplayer and co-op due to many requests and we polishing up the game and raising the bar.

We have updated the videos section with our official teaser trailer and new screen shots.

As with the map, the map is meant to be this way. You have been spoon fed too much over the years with regards to maps, pinpointing your location and way-points. The map system in Ghostship is a little realistic and requires you to do more work. You have to look at your surroundings then work out where you are and where you want to go. It is a big ship but the navigation of it is quite easy really once you get use to it. Basically the Main Access corridor and Sub Access corridor link up all main 3 sections of the ship. Each section is comprised of decks where you use the stairs or elevators to move between the decks in a section of the ship.

Well nearly all of what you have said is going to be in the game. There are 7 different ways you can escape the ship, and some ways may require other survivors help. There will be lots of things which will happen through out the game, and many options where can chose not to or to do something wich will affect your game in a big way. Lots of stuff really. There are lots more weapons in the alpha, you have to find them. There will be a big updated alpha released in Mid July so keep an eye out for it :) Glad you are having fun. Dont forget to try out the onslaught mode and challenge mode for some extra and different fun.

Hi, glad you are enjoying it, looks like you have not found of the other weapons yet. SMGs, Miniguns, Rifles etc, some with lazer sights, some with tac lights. Please play a little more and try and find some of the other weapons. The alpha story mode is quite big, taking the lock-down off on the bridge is only the start of the alpha, that's when the alpha starts to get fun :)

There are different types of aliens after that point and don't forget to try out the 2 challenges on challenge mode - Just to the end of the hall & Scavenger. Also the Onslaught maps - Hangar 2 & Medical are fun.

There is still much to do on the game yet and still many improvements to be made. Thanks for your feedback.

For the Alpha Build, have you considered uploading it as a Torrent instead of a download? May upload/download faster that way.

Hi, I have tried that using uTorrent, have set it up and tried seeding it but i could not get it to work, something i am probably doing wrong as I am unfamiliar with it. If anyone can do it from there end that would be great and I give you my permission to do so. If anyone can get it working as a torrent let me know and i will post the link. I am trying again at the moment to get it up here on desura for tomorrow so I will keep you posted.

I've played The Ghostship Alpha version 0.33 yesterday for few hours and must say is good. Nice atmosphere, creepy sounds, dark and claustrophobic locations. Of course still needs a lot of work and optimisation but has great potential. And we've to keep on mind that this huge demo (sometimes full releases are shorter that this one) has been done by only one man. Both thumbs up. Well done Shaun.

Did you zip the file? That should decrease the size considerably.

The Zip managed to save 2% as it is a single exe installer. And the site i am uploading it to want the exe file and not in zip format.

You guys just don't understand how to work with lights, models, music and scenario. You need re make EVERYTHING.
