ROCKFISH Games, founded by mobile games veterans Michael Schade and Christian Lohr, has provided the first information on the brand-new IP from the indie studio based in Hamburg, Germany. The Hamburg developers are staying true to their roots in the sci-fi genre and have announced the spiritual successor to the Galaxy on Fire series with EVERSPACE. It is a roguelike 3Dspace shooter, with a unique, non-linear story and fast-paced shooter gameplay which will thrill the hardcore gamer community. In EVERSPACE, players awaken onboard a battleship in a remote corner of our galaxy. They receive a mysterious command to appear at a specific place. Searching for the origins of their own existence and the unknown commander, they must fight their way through more and more new, uncontrolled territories where they will encounter other skilled combat pilots, who range from cooperative to hostile. Death will be a constant companion and constantly recurring flashbacks of the protagonist will gradually shine a light in the darkness of the mission. During the course of the game, players will not only have to continually prove their combat skills, but also gather fuel and raw materials in order to travel to various star systems and repair and upgrade their equipment.

The roguelike character of the game offers a quick and easy entry to the game and adds constant twists and surprises to the game events. Along with gameplaying skills, this also demands improvisation by players and provides an individual, always motivational game experience. Unlike in classic roguelikes, game progress is not completely lost at the moment of death, but rather remains available in the form of persistent upgrades. “With EVERSPACE, we want to build on our successes with the Galaxy on Fire series and let our 30 million GOFfans experience an even more intense, action-packed outer space adventure with a really exciting story,” says Michael Schade, founder and CEO of ROCKFISH Games.

Check out these stunning screenshots that show how good the game will look on it’s release.

I've been gaming since the dark days of the ZX81 and have owned almost every console that has been released. I spend waaaayyyyy too much time playing Destiny but when I'm not I enjoy writing reviews of other games and sharing them on here.

    There is no official word that Everspace will come to the ps4 Q4. Maybe next year after Microsoft timed exclusive expires.

      You’re quite right, thanks for that. Post now updated and PS4 references removed. Still looks good though. 🙂
