It’s time to trade in that bomber jacket and suit up for some snug red velour. While the multi-million selling, critically acclaimed strategic simulation game Bomber Crew is getting a long awaited sequel.
The Brighton based independent studio Runner Duck are eager to announce Space Crew. This is also the next instalment in the massively successful Crew series. In this brand new entry, players have to defend Earth. While facing off against a mysterious new alien menace. Doing so by carefully recruiting crew members and designing your own spaceship. Since you will be venturing across the cosmos.
We’re using Unity (as we did for Bomber Crew).
Currently, the game isn’t listed on Steam as being available for Mac or Linux. But last night I tested the Linux build on my other computer & it’s running fine. So, despite the Steam page not listing it yet. I’m fairly certain it will be happening.
Space Crew will feature the same compelling gameplay loop. Just the same as its beloved predecessor. Since play players will control the actions of their crew moment to moment. All in in the trivia of navigation, scanning and combat. The new space setting allows much more player freedom and campaign instability. While including much greater mission variety and deeper strategic gameplay.
Space Crew | Official Reveal Trailer
Players will have to be more alert than ever when venturing through space. Having the challenge of protecting their vulnerable crew from alien boardings. Getting sucked out into space, running out of oxygen, and system failures. Also putting out ship fires and whatever else the campaign AI can throw at you from mission to mission. It is these moments of seeing your crew triumph over adversity time and time again. Although with a few casualties along the way. Which makes the original Bomber Crew such a runaway hit. And developer Runner Duck is aiming for a similarly thrilling emergent story telling in the sequel.
Now the really great news is that fans of the original Bomber Crew. And aspiring space adventurers won’t have long to wait to try Space Crew. Runner Duck and Curve Digital’s sequel has been selected by Valve. And available for Steam Summer Games Festival, with everyone able to try out an early slice of the game. Which is still live on Steam for free to try. The Demo also works really well on Proton.
