Sector Six is a side-scrolling, sci-fi shooter with silhouette aesthetic, procedural loot and extensive customization.

Save the Universe

Enter distant future and join the desperate fight to stop the Eight Machines from destroying everything.
Unleash apocalyptic weapons, break laws of physics, resurrect ravaged dimensions - nothing is impossible in a war of this scale.

Build your spaceship

Build your spaceship from procedural parts, obtained by destroying minions of the Machines and completing missions.
Every part has various properties and can be placed anywhere on the building field, allowing you to customize performance and appearance of your spaceship however you want.

Become master of spaceship combat

Test not just your spaceship, but also your skills as you dodge enemy projectiles and find the right timing to counterattack with your own.
Each enemy brings new attacks, defenses, and strategies to defeat - it’s up to you to hone your combat skills and take them down.

Spaceship part customization and part sets

Combine, upgrade and re-roll parts to create ones that are ideal for your dream spaceship.
If that is not enough, collect set parts to activate game-change set effects and transform your destroyer of invaders into something even more powerful!

Modular difficulty system

Make the game as hard as you want it to be!
Forget "Easy / Medium / Hard" - the modular difficulty system allows you to modify almost every element of the combat and even gives rewards for it.

Since the last time I have posted, I have made a new introduction and tutorial, loot rework, region select screen, another MDS reward rework, character customization, and...
And something else probably.

The most important of those is, of course, loot rework!

It's very simple - making missions more difficult will make enemies drop more and better parts.
Additionally, drop quality is now influenced by minion power and whether it is modified or not.

For example, modified dreadnought will drop better parts than the normal dreadnought and normal dreadnought will drop better parts than a tank.
There are still a lot of random chances involved, so don't expect this to be true all the time.

Introduction cutscene has been removed, because it was too long and, well, not that good.
Instead of it, there are several dialogue boxes that appear before and after the tutorial.

The tutorial has been shortened as well, so it takes a lot less time to get to the real game.

Region select screen allows to quickly jump from one region to the other, without using arrow buttons.
This is useful to higher level players and it will be even more useful when the Restoration War activity will be added.

Finally, now it's possible to create a custom character for dialogues.
You can change character's name and dialogue appearance.

I'm really happy with the improvements, but not that happy with how fast I've been working.

Unfortunately, ETA has not moved forward much. Now it's at 45 days.
This is because there were several delays and because loot rework was not included in the previous ETA.

Two steps forward, one step back.
This weekend I won't be at home, so that's another delay, but when I'm back, I'll be working on the final story mission and the Machines.
My current estimate is that it'll take 3 weeks, but if I can do it faster, this will bring the release much closer.

Currently, story mission XIV and the Machines are the biggest tasks on the list.

This is best of the best. I played so many games, but this staff is extra segment element. Maybe to add player reinforcements ships in missions. So the game become much interesting to play. Or missions, defend supply ships under heavy fire or similar. Extract vips from planets, so many ideas have to realise.
Keep it up ..

Thank you!

Maze and rescue missions are in the plans.
(Maze - non-linear mission during which you explore maze for loot)
(Rescue - you have to destroy enemies and demolish ruined buildings to free trapped civilian ships. Demolishing will require precision, to not hit civilian ships)

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.

Played the game on our channel. Really enjoyed it and hope it goes all the way!

Reply Good karma Bad karma+3 votes

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.
