Longshot is a game about space combat. The majority of the gameplay is dueling with other ships, flying maneuvers with allies and destroying the enemy. You play a merc either for the humans or the aliens. There are six ships on each side, two of each of three different classes. There are four weapon types and two missile types. There is a central base which can be captured to allow you to build automated defense turrets. The purpose of the game is either to destroy the enemy base or hold the central base long enough to win.

It may be a longshot, but because the world is going to end... for sure... we might as well give the game away steeply discounted. Sale starts Friday just after midnight UTC. Mayans used UTC right?

Since we're procrastinating on putting out the next build to see if the world will still be here to play it, we figured we might as well deeply discount it so at least you can immerse yourself in virtual fire and chaos on screen while the fire and chaos engulfs you offscreen.

Or if the world doesn't end, you will be able to look for the new game mode, soon to be released after the world continues existing.

Thanks for playing!
