We are happy to announce that Deep Space Settlement enters its pre-order phase! Head over to for more info on how to pre-order.

The game has been in production since 2011 and will hit the First Playable milestone by the end of the year. By pre-ordering now you will get exclusive access to this very first milestone release and will be a privileged early backer and supporter of the development team. We will listen to your first-hand feedback and you will help shaping the awesome 4X RTS game Deep Space Settlement thrives to be.

The game has been completely self-funded until now, at first with personal savings and later through side contract jobs. Now, full time dedication to the project would require your support and we feel the game is close enough to a solid first playable release. In this release you will be able to:

  • build your first colony
  • design and build you first corvettes and capital ships
  • mine resources
  • basic trading with local non-player factions / races
  • defend against invaders
  • Single player
  • Multiplayer(allied)
  • Have fun!!

Q. When will it release?
A. We strongly believe that in order to make Deep Space Settlement one of the best 4X RTS game out there we need to take the necessary time to nurture the game in all it's glory. Setting us hard deadlines would compromise the quality of DSS. Please understand that we are a small team of passionate and dedicated indie game developers who will do whatever it takes to put an awesome game in your hands. By pre-ordering the game you will contribute to this goal and we can't express our gratitude enough. Thank you!

We are also starting a Steam Greenlight page, vote yes to help get us to the Steam store!

You can preorder it on their site, however bear in mind it is fairly pricey, but I can understand that at the moment preorder money goes directly into development.

Finally got around to finding you guys on greenlight and giving you guys a thumbs up.

Anyways, mining planetoids sounds like an interesting idea and while I don't know what ideas you have floating around for cracking them open. Might I suggest a vessel, armed with something equivalent to a pile driver, using a large elongated piece of metal pointed at the tip so that it can pierce the crust, not sure if that's doable in engine but other than massed fire power (which you already pointed out) I've got nothing.

Story scripting support? Unit abilities? Movement type modding(Such as figher pathing, vs capital ship)? Looking forward to modding.

Holy ****, this game looks like an awesome marriage of several games I love!

Say, I'm a 3d artist who currently have no projects going on, and I'd love to get some solid experience in on developing something real, something proper. How would you feel about some pro-bono outside help? Send me a mail if you have the time and are interested, and we'll talk!
