Hey G-LYFE Nation, guess what just hit the radar? Underspace, the spiritual sequel to the retro legend Freelancer, is making waves with its gameplay reveal. Get ready to dive into cosmic warfare laced with Lovecraftian elements. It’s a galaxy brain blend of deep space sim, questing, and open-world exploration.
Here’s the download: Underspace isn’t just another space shooter. It cranks the dial by combining the open-world freedom players cherished in Freelancer with today’s cutting-edge combat and ship upgrade mechanics. Think the finesse of games like Squadrons and Everspace and you’re in the right nebula.
Co-op and PvP Features
Hold onto your joysticks, peeps! Early Access in 2024 will feature not just a solo flight through the cosmos but also co-op and PvP multiplayer modes. Imagine squadin’ up with your buddies or blasting some randoms out of the asteroid belt.
Wishlists and Early Looks
How hyped is the gaming community? Well, Underspace already tallied over 20,000 wishlists on Steam. Not to mention, indie Youtuber Splattercat gave the game some sweet props in its Pre-Alpha state earlier this year.
Developer Spotlight: Kevin Brock
Who’s the whiz behind this cosmic masterpiece? None other than Kevin Brock, a solo dev with an illustrious background. Brock has his coding fingerprints on several Bethesda titles and is also a big shot when it comes to Skyrim modding. Expect a mashup of the depth, scope, and passion found in open-world RPGs that Brock both worked on and fanboyed over.
