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.

Installed it, Desura asked to download install tool helper and it installed, couldn't load pipeclient, so I'm not going to get a chance to rate this game.

Sorry to hear that, there is not much i can do with regards to the desura side of it, don't forget you can download the full installer from the Ghostship web site, you should not have any problems with that.

Looks promising. The atmosphere was reminiscent of Dead Space. There was an annoyinjg bug with some of the menus, the "exit" and "back" buttons didn't always work at all. And it was pretty hard to shoot without a crosshair. In this type of games for me, the problems can sometimes be repetitiveness and lack of interaction (i. e. a certain emptiness). Anyway, I'm gonna keep this game in mind because it certainly seemed very interesting:)

While I'm not quite ready to put money towards this... (Mostly because I don't have the money.)
I will say, I very much like what i see thus far.
I hope you can keep up the good work, and that the funding still steadily comes in.

Funding is our biggest challenge, but essential for development.
