Vacuum is an open-ended sandbox game focused on placing you in the commanders shoes of a space station in the not too distant future. Manage a crew of hundreds as you journey throughout the stars.Drawing inspiration from dozens of games, notably Startopia, FTL, Black & White, and even the Battlestar Galatica television series. Vacuum is my attempt to create a realistic space station crew-management and combat simulator.
Some key features of Vacuum include:

  • Ability to have hundreds of unique crew members. Each with their own unique names, backstories, and attributes and desires.
  • Protect your crew from the dangers of space! You'll have to react to asteroid strikes, solar flares, boarding parties of space pirates, fires, mutiny, prison riots, and refugees infected with space-plague.
  • Crew interact with their environments in a true simulation styled game. If a missile rips a whole in the exterior of your ship watch out as crew will be sucked into the vacuum of space.
  • Build a harsh military station that refugees loathe being stuck on or establish a utopia in dead space that fosters a rich society.
