Spaceship crafting, tower defense, strategy, that's what Space Run is about, the game from indie studio Passtech Games. The title is set to release in May for PC and will cost less than $10. More details inside.



FOCUS HOME INTERACTIVE PRESENTS SPACE RUN FROM PASSTECH GAMES ON VIDEO

We are thrilled to unveil today, with a video, Space Run. This PC game mixes strategy and space ship construction in real time, borrowing certain mechanics from the "tower defense" system with numerous twists and hyper dynamic gameplay. Space Run is a nod to '80s science fiction and pays homage to many of its tropes and references.

Space Run is a true indie title developed by a "one-man studio", namely Sylvain Passot who, after spending 10 years in a large French development studio, decided to develop his own concept, "'Space Run''. Although nowhere near the scale of the productions he had previously worked on, Sylvain was supported with enough resources to complete and add the finishing touches to his game, and Space Run still has plenty of surprises in store with its well-oiled game mechanics, addictive gameplay and intense, exciting missions.
We were won over by Space Run, which has already proved a hit with numerous European journalists who tested the first game levels at various press presentations earlier this year. Space Run will also be demonstrated and playable at GDC Play in the US during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco from March 17-21, 2014, when an even more complete version will be available, as the game is set for release in May priced under $10.

We are therefore delighted to reveal a first teaser of Space Run, which takes us to the outer limits of space beyond the final frontier!

The year is 2525. You are captain Buck Mann, the most fearless, daredevil and the most broke of all the pilots in the galaxy! Your new job: you are a Space Runner, one of the space haulage contractors whose job is to transport valuable cargo from one end of the galaxy to the other... and one thing's for sure: it's going to be a bumpy ride. Not only do the cosmic highways regularly pass through asteroid belts of all sizes, but they are also used by dangerous and unscrupulous pirates armed to the teeth, whose fighters and battle cruisers will make short work of your transport vessel if you're totally unprepared. And finally, you will also encounter other galactic "drivers" with whom you are fiercely competitive, so take this opportunity to give them a friendly blast from your turbo lasers when you overtake them!

Fulfil your contracts with gusto and your reputation will soar, opening the doors to new clients and more demanding and hazardous assignments... but which will also be more lucrative! The rewards earned from these missions will enable you to unlock new modules for your ship or upgrade those you already own: luxuries you can't afford to be without if you want to survive the mortal perils lurking in space. Turrets lasers, missile launchers, shield generators, thrusters, power plants and other modules will allow you to adapt to new combat situations in mid-flight that arise on your travels. Build, recycle, repair and reposition the modules and improvise as best you can to deal with the multiple threats you will face.

Retry the first missions with new and more technically advanced modules you've just unlocked to complete them more quickly and improve your score. Then enter a brutal race with your friends to finish each mission in the shortest time possible... preferably with your ship still intact!

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus massive downgrades coming from the staples achieved w/ the Halo 3 sandbox/physics, with Dice/BField it should never be a trade-off, ony thing they should be trading its engine if it isnt up 3 the job (3 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus Halo keeps being this Sonic title bait & switch "will their next title be able to Look up par with its current gen counterparts"? Never. Even Halo 4 who was pretty good on Campaign suffered from (3 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus tech? I dunno, go get some insight of Activision (the good input, not the misogyny), all they COD devs make evident generation leaps tech-wise. Do they keep being the same core IP? I think so. (3 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus so Halo must be thet bottomb of the barrel FPS to keep its identity. Add some negligible subsurface scattering reflections or some other tech only possible now and call it the day copy/pasting the ol (3 Days ago)

  • b0vril

    b0vril yea but, would it be halo then? (3 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus engines. I mean, If you can have a PS3 Ratchet & Clanck that looks like a vaseline ps3 game, and a PS5 Ratchet&Clack that looks like a goddamn next-gen game, why can't Halo Evolve - Ugly FPS Seal™ (4 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus Halo Infinite sure is one ugly damn game. Pretty obvious nothing is going to massible change if the Ip doesn't die and start from the ground up with another publisher/dev that doesn't retread the ol (4 Days ago)
