Indie Showcase

Shallow Space: Insurgency (SSI) by Special Circumstances Games

About SSI

Shallow Space is an action packed Real Time Strategy space game in a true 3D environment.

It’s been 10 years since the true greats of the genre arrived on the scene (Homeworld and Nexus: The Jupiter Incident) and we think that by looking at what made those games great and adding a few twists of originality we can help breath a bit of life into the fairly neglected niché of the 3D movement, space-faring RTS genre.

Players will control a wide variety of heavily customizable ships throughout an in depth story line and skirmish scenarios, in single player and multiplayer throughout a variety of game modes. With a heavy emphasis on gameplay options, Shallow Space: Insurgency’s asymmetrical balance will ensure plenty of variety and replayability.

The scope of play will be a set of planetary systems in which you will be tasked to assemble your battlegroup to deny the opposing force access to your zones of control.

You will do this by mining resources, building stations, acquiring blueprints for ships and weapons assembling your fleet from the individual turrets right up to flotilla organisation. You will complete both structured story and incidental missions for rewards and you will play the game as a battlegroup commander, a small cog in a very big wheel.

Shallow Space’s gameplay will focus on the “macro” style of strategy games. Rather than spending all of your time piloting one ship, or even four or five ships, you will be commanding several flotillas across your designated sector of control. This allows players to focus on the strategy of combat, rather than the tactic involved with piloting a single ship.

Players will have access to a variety of tools to aid them in managing large scale war. Ships will be organized into “flotillas” and “wings,” enabling easier fleet management in the intensity of combat. Furthermore, ships will be have some level of autonomy to them, they are piloted by an entire crew after all.

These ship organizations and intelligence allows players to focus on the big picture strategy.

Features

  • Intense Real Time Strategy
  • Immersive Single Player Campaign
  • Deep Backstory
  • Customizable Ships and Fleets
  • Wide Variety of Hulls and Modules

There is much more to come from SSI, it’s only in the Alpha stage and updates and tweaks are happening all of the time! Keep you eyes peeled on their IndieDB page (see below) to be kept up to date on all the latest updates.
