Set to release in Early Access on Steam in October 2017 for Linux, Mac and Windows. Since the full release date is scheduled for Q1 2018.
“We have come up with a very distinctive and quite precise idea of how the game should look like and how it should play, taking the basic inspiration from such games as Darkest Dungeon and FTL: Faster Than Light. Yet we are very much looking forward to pushing the game further with the aid of the community during the Steam Early Access period and implementing the players’ best suggestions for the perfect Deep Sky Derelicts experience,” said Dmytro Zhovtobryukh, CEO & Co-founder of Snowhound Games.
Deep Sky Derelicts card combat will bring the players into the burdensome life of a society outcast. A scavenger trying to make a living, while aspiring for a better life of a full-fledged citizen. Players will be exploring derelict alien ships, fight, loot, hire mercenaries into their team. Buying new weapons and upgrading their gear. The games loaded with a retro-futuristic comic book aesthetic style. Creating a distinctive dark atmosphere of deep space. With unknown locations and a lost dystopian society. Rogue-like elements featuring such popular mechanics as procedurally-generated dungeons. Along with turn-based combat and card-based actions. While lethal threat lurkes around every corner. Drawing players into an unforgiving, yet fascinating world with its own unique lore on Linux, Mac and Windows.
Deep Sky Derelicts Teaser:
While set in a grim dystopian future, where mankind has scattered across the galaxy. The human society has split into two distinct classes. So players take on the roll of the games poor stateless outcast. Forced to live off scraps from derelict alien stations and ships in the outer space. Yet you dream of becoming a privileged citizen and living on the surface of a habitable planet. Enjoying non-synthetic air, water and food. So the fabled alien derelict ship is your ticket. Somewhere within the Deep Sky sector of space is your voucher for a citizenship. And a promise of cozy life on a hospitable planet.
Hire and control a squad of up to three mercenary characters and set on to explore derelict ships within your reach from the scavenger’s base. Searching the derelicts for loot and clues, you come across many friendly inhabitants and traders, but more often – various enemies. Challenge and defeat them in tactical turn-based fights, where randomly-drawn cards form your changing arsenal of combat actions, gain experience for yourself and your crew, loot dead bodies, resupply and upgrade once back at your base. The scavenger’s home ship gives you the opportunity to heal and level-up your mercenaries, recruit new ones, equip them, upgrade their gear or recharge energy for life support during missions.
