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.

Very Buggy... Looks promising though. Definately hasa few issues with the HUD and the amount of space gun takes up. All fixable and capable of being smoothed up to something really good

the current version is extremely buggy to the point of near unplayability, but you get a free pass with it being Alpha and all.. I'll keep an eye on this because what did work seemed really cool.

My current issues are: seems near impossible to close the map (clicking close doesn't do anything most of the time) and I can't seem to find a way to get out of Helmet view, which, while immersive, is not very playable with that view bobbing on every step.

once the obvious bugs are ironed out I have a feeling this game will be pretty good, as it is, I'm keeping my eye on it

graphics looks nice, but the effects from guns and rifles are a bit too flashy in my opinion... (at least that's what I can tell from the video)
