Deep Sixed - A Space Survival Adventure - on Kickstarter

Deep Sixed by Little Red Dog Games is a space survival game where players are given a defective spaceship and a large nebula to map with plenty of mysteries to reveal. As you explore, things will go wrong on your expeditions and you will be expected to make command decisions. You can conduct a distracting and extensive repair, or implement a temporary make-do solution so you can focus on what’s happening outside. You can attack nebula creatures head-on, or study their habits and hope to avoid their attention. Perfect journeys are impossible, and players will find themselves building upon and applying a core set of basic engineering skills to address competing priorities.

This game comes without an undo button. There will be no savescumming. Your ship stays with you from start to finish, and if something breaks, it'll stay broken until you figure out how to fix it. In this game, everything matters: using duct tape to seal a pipe in your first mission can come back to haunt you in your last.  

The nebula you are exploring has many procedurally generated mysteries for the ambitious explorer, and a diverse ecosystem of intergalactic fauna with their own predator, prey and scavenger roles. 

As a court-mandated involuntary employee of a ruthless megacorporation, you will be sent into the breach time and time again in the hopes of earning your freedom. Your ship will also contain an artificial intelligence unit with its own objectives that promise to surprise and entertain. 

The Deep Sixed story is told through cutscenes that occur between missions, through e-mails sent and received in the game’s space-station hub, and in-situ as the Pilot discovers something interesting in the nebula. These narrative vignettes weave a thoughtful and compelling tale of friendship and compassion under unexpected circumstances inspired by classic works of science fiction.  

Check out the Kickstarter Page for more details and of course to support the game if you think it looks interesting!  $10 snags you a copy of the game, among other rewards.  Deep Sixed is in development for PC, Mac and Linux, with mobile formats anticipated to follow early next year.
