Ship Building

  • Modular damage and power system.
  • Sensors that when tripped can activate your weapon & defense systems, cause a set of jaws to close shut, immediately use a special ability, etc.
  • Interactive tutorial to get you started.

Game Modes

  • Roguelike mode: Permadeth, no levelling/XP system, specials are randomly dropped by defeating enemies. All enemies are roughly the same level, bosses are a little stronger. Good ship design in this mode is key.
  • RPG mode: Experience system, specials unlocked by levelling up and defeating bosses. Enemy levels and boss levels increase as you make your way through the game.
  • Ship building mode: Freely build and test ships without any restrictions, outside of your active games.

Secondary Missions & Space Stations

As well as the primary missions (bosses), there are now secondary missions which can help you level up faster and get higher level and harder to get components as rewards. There are missions available from every space station, and roughly 25 space stations (one in each area) in each game. Missions get replenished as you go through them, and are randomly generated and scaled based on the difficulty of the area you are in.

  • Cargo missions: Attach cargo containers to your ship, fly them safely to the destination space station to get a reward.
  • Hunt missions: Destroy a certain number of a type of drone ship in the target area to get a reward.
  • Trophy missions: Take a specific type of ship component from an enemy ship in the target area, and return with them to exchange them for a reward.
  • Freight ships: Over 200 freight ships flying around all at once in the map. You can trade with them, and they can be useful in finding space stations you haven't discovered yet.

Enemies/AI

  • Over 50 AI controlled drone ships to battle and salvage from.
  • Each one is made entirely out of components that can be placed on your ships, and many have special abilities that you can unlock.
  • Enemy ships now have pack dynamics, and each one has a different personality. Sometimes they will fight themselves if one accidentally attacks the other.
  • 7 bosses

Blueprints/Steam Workshop

  • Create and test blueprints outside of a save game, and save them to your library.
  • Download blueprints from Steam Workshop into your library, and publish your blueprints to Steam Workshop
  • Import/export blueprints from/to your library and your save game libraries, instantly build blueprints in-game if you have the right materials.

  • 4+ page inventory to store extra components and crafting materials.
  • Crafting system, where elements are stored in stacks in your inventory and blueprints are unlocked by melting down components.
