Gangs of Space is an indie rogue shmup MMO coming to Linux, Mac and Windows. While developed with love by Grouroux and Erhune, the games going to be free to play, coming August 10th via Steam.
Part-Shmup, part-Hack’n Slash. Your skill will be your important asset in order to avoid the myriad of enemy bullets. In addition, choosing the right abilities and equipment for your ship will transform you in a formidable space predator. But get your tissues ready: here, every death is permanent!
Since 2012, we’ve been working on a sophisticated recipe that produces a unique gameplay:
- Take a handful of projectiles, another of vicious enemies and a few ripe bosses
- Add a good amount of ships, abilities and equipment
- Sprinkle with a light dost of randomness for a pleasant change
- Mix strongly with a good amount of teamwork and conquest until your preparation becomes epic
- Your game is ready to serve!
Chose a ship among multiple classes, and level it over 10 quick levels. Create a unique build and optimize it by looting equipment from the fuming wrecks of your enemies. Over time, you will complete class objectives and unlock new build choices that will enhance the possibilities of your next ships.
The goal of Gangs of Space is simple: conquer the Galaxy in the name of the Empire! Whether you go solo-hunting or gather a squad of talented Gang-mates, the only important thing is that: conquer more and more sectors.
When the Galaxy is fully conquered, players and Gangs receive rewards based on their rank in various ladders. A new conquest campaign then starts, in a new unknown Galaxy.
So Gangs of Space will be making a debut via Steam for Linux, Mac and Windows. Since the games release is free to play and available on August 10th.
