Everspace in its Final Week on Kickstarter
The space shooter is a genre that's making a comeback in a big way between games like No Man's Sky and Star Citizen but none of those games are offering a space shooter based roguelike. Waitaminute! How would that even work? Thankfully the Kickstarter page is here to explain – you get a destination and a route plotted, on the way you make the most of the situations presented by fighting, sneaking, exploring or running away. The modern roguelike staple of persistent progression is handled via ship upgrades and perks that give you a better chance of survival during your journey.
With no sim elements, a focus on action, and a ship that looks rather a lot like the Vic Viper it's easy to see the appeal of Everspace. If that isn't enough to sell you it also has crafting, an advanced damage system, lovely Unreal Engine 4 graphics and physics that'll allow you to blow asteroids apart.
Stay tuned for more info as we get it.
