Over 350 years in the future mankind has embraced space travel and exploration. We have colonized many worlds and spread ourselves across the galaxy. The Colonial Defense Force (CDF) is responsible for the security of Earth and her colonies, and our only line of defense against the unknown.

On March 1st 2368 contact was lost with our most distant colony, located in the Icarus system. Two days later the Dreadnought class spaceship CDF Goliath was dispatched to investigate. Experience the events that transpire as a Marine on the boarding party to the Icarus 3 Space Station and as a pilot returning from another mission a few days later.

Discover what happened to the CDF Goliath and why nine days after entering the Icarus system it was finally declared a Ghostship.


Story Mode

Play from the viewpoint of 2 different characters in an open world with random events and enemies, and a huge focus on atmosphere and immersion.

Skirmish Mode

You are one of the last survivors! With just 1 life, escape the ship if you can!

Onslaught Mode

A wave based survival mode where you must kill as many enemies as you can. There are 8 different onslaught maps which are based on locations from the story mode.

Challenge Mode

Offers a variety of diverse challenges which will test your combat ability, agility, and problem solving skills. There are 8 different challenge maps which are based on locations from the story mode.

Simulation Mode

Consists of a wide variety of single missions based on historic CDF battles and simulations created for the Marines on the Goliath to hone their skills.

Multiplayer & Co-op

We are planning to add multiplayer and coop game modes if there are enough funds to support it. The more friends you get to buy CDF Ghostship, the more likely it is you'll get to play it with them.

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.

The storyline has a big part, and the game play is free roaming (adventure style) rather than level based :)

The new alpha 0.43 will be released at Xmas and will have some graphics options, the full beta will have full graphics options. From alpha 0.4 there have been many optimizations and runs much better on lower end machines.
