We are happy to announce that Deep Space Settlement enters its pre-order phase! Head over to www.deepspacesettlement.com 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!

I'd pre order but every "Early Game" on steam i've purchased stopped, no offense to the devs here but
Greenlight: Check
Preorder: fingers crossed
Tip: flies spread disease, so keep yours closed.

I understand your concern, but that gives you no right to insult myself or anyone else. I've been following the development of this game for many months, at least a year, I think, and mathias has shown nothing but enthusiasm and professionalism in his dedication to creating a quality game. Sure, maybe it won't be the super-ultra-amazingest game ever, but I'm sure it will stand in its own right, be friendly to modding, and most definitely be finished.

I'm proud to support indies like DSS whose devs interact with their community and find joy in sharing their game, even if it's not perfect yet.

Nowhere in my reply to the post I replied to did I insult anyone, anywhere. I am not sure how you took offense to that. I hope they finish this I've been following it for a long time, I think I called and shouted at my friends and family to get on steam and greenlight the thing.

I love RTS games, especially when I can build an empire and a space empire, hell yeah. I was just saying all the games i've helped greenlight and pre-ordered that came to steam and went early access have been at a 100% flop rate or at least a giant pivot that completely was not what I was paying for.

if I wish to have insulted you or anyone else i'd have said "your Mother was a Newt and your father smelled of Elder Berries."

"Now go away or I shall taunt you a second time *mouth smack*"

those are quotes from a movie, don't get carried away.

lol, I was referring to "flies spread disease, so keep yours closed" which I think we can agree isn't the most polite thing to say.

I need to see Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I've seen bits and pieces but it just isn't enough!
