Sector Six is under attack, the Machines, massive automatic spaceships are destroying everything! No weapon can stop the Machines, the only hope is the Elder Mechanism, an ancient device of the mighty Almadi civilization, who colonized Sector Six a long time ago.

You take the role of the Negati Armada's best fighter, who, due to a dramatic chain of events receives the Elder Mechanism. Go on an epic journey across the mysterious Sector, develop your spaceship, activate the Elder Mechanism and defeat the Machines, before it's too late!

Sector Six is an elegant and innovative RPG/shoot 'em up hybrid.

The core feature of Sector Six is the unique spaceship building from randomly generated parts, which can be obtained by destroying enemies - the minions of the Machines.

Other key features are:

  • Story-driven missions including cutscenes and dialog
  • Unique silhouette art style
  • Complex combat system
  • Deep character customization
  • Millions of randomly generated items

The game is still under development, upcoming updates will further enhance the gameplay experience!

Sector Six has been updated!
This update adds a lot of new content and improves various parts of the game.

Five new abilities!

Era's End, apocalypse class ability: The most powerful damage dealing ability in Sector Six!
Overload, apocalypse class ability: Overload removes armour and in exchange sets all ability cooldowns to 0.
Nine Bladed Mines, carrier class ability: Releases nine bladed mines, that deal damage and remove shields.
Attract Mines, carrier class ability: Attracts mines that appear above, bellow and behind enemies and deal damage when detonated.
EMP Grenade, carrier class ability: Launches grenade that explodes and jams enemies! Jammed enemies cannot move or attack.

Three new enemies!

Collectors: Large, powerful enemies with unique attack abilities. Destroy collector's emitters to prevent them from using their most powerful attack.
Mosaics: Medium sized enemies that are composed of fragile parts. Mosaics launch mines that are difficult to dodge.
Drones: Small enemies similar to demolishers.

New game+

If you have completed all story missions, you can now go to settings and reset them.
This allows you do them all over again!
This feature has not been properly tested, due to the amount of time it would take to do that.
If you encounter any issues related to it, please report them immediately.

Cities have been improved.

Now they offer more items and have fewer glitches!
Also, spaceship now moves faster in secure regions.

Other changes:

  • Ability removed: Mine Mayhem.
  • Fixed Detonate sound effect glitch.
  • Added elimination mission.
  • Acolyte seeking shards are now slower.
  • Ether on hit removed.
  • Possibly fixed broken inventory slot amount.
  • Shards of Chaos ability now deals more damage.
  • Shatter ability now deals more damage.
  • Fixed shield depth glitch.
  • Fixed tutorial glitch.
  • Side missions now have better rewards.
  • Side missions now may give units as a reward.

The controls feel a little clunky, so I'm looking forward to any changes in that matter. Other than that, the aesthetics are so cool, and the overall execution is pretty good.

im really looking forward for the full game.

there's something i've noticed during Colony Seeker fights. when it charges forward and u get in his way, it starts to constantly bashing u until u die. the controls arent working, so u cant step aside anymore.

also, if u fly all the way back, when fighting it, it will go off-screen, leaving u in empty space with nothing to do.

Gives you time to reassert your bearings. Useful, I'd say.

have you thought of adding game pad compatibility?

Update: I got suggestion to make a co-op mode in Sector Six! I like this idea a lot, imagine building two spaceships and teamwork while fighting bosses! So I might implement controller support just to make co-op possible.

Of course, I'll need for people to support Sector Six to make this happen, because making co-op mode in Sector Six is as hard as to make whole new game.

Yes, but I don't think Sector Six will ever support game pads.

I think you can only mod game that has mod support. Which leads to same problem, because Sector Six will not have mod support. But I might be wrong, I don't know much about modding.

And to be honest, I don't like mods. I tried to add them to few games, but it only ruined them.

Well, I can understand mods that fix game flaws, but only those mods. Others are horrible =]

Well, to force a game pad on a game that doesn't have support for gamepads, you don't need to mod it. Instead, it typically involves some sort of keyhooking so, for instance, "R1" emulates the left mouse button, so on and so forth, but such things also require the user to configure all of which button to which key, and do fine tuning as well, (Deadzones, anti-deadzones, sensitivity, axis switching/rotation etc) so, yeah. There are special programs you can find for this, such as X360CE, JoyToKey, Motioninjoy, and Xpadder, among others.

If you do decide to use one of these, without any personal tuning pertaining to your specific gamepad, using a gamepad would be even MORE clunky than using the keyboard itself.

As for modding games that don't have mod support, that's kind of complicated, because it comes down to "at what point do we cross the line from modding to cheating" when modding that type of game, because usually it's more along the lines of hooking to alter specific hex/floating point values.
