Shallow Space Videos, Screens, Info – November 1, 2014

In Shallow Space, you’ll take control of a fleet of customizable Capital ships, Cruisers, Frigates and Wings, perform policing and escort duties, harvest resources and respond to random encounters. Each task will require the player to assemble packs of ships to respond appropriately. This response can take different forms and will result in dynamic gameplay.

At times, you’ll be required to direct action on multiple fronts. TCN command may call on you to perform storyline missions as well.

The screens at right (above) show Mining Barges, a Space Station, Light Cruisers and a Heavy Battlecruiser.

Mining mechanics as well as the workings of the game’s production and economy are still being worked out by developer Crackdown Games. The screen shows several Barges engaged in mining operations.

The new Space Station is massive. It’s pretty much the center of anything and everything.

Light Cruisers are fast, maneuverable and highly effective at darting around a battlefield and providing help where it’s needed most.

Heavy Battlecruisers are armed to the teeth and ready to provide massive firepower. They’re also able to take quite a beating.    

Shallow Space has been Greenlit, and Crackdown will be conducting a crowdfunding campaign at some point in the future. The game will initially be released for PC, followed by Mac and Linux. Crackdown says it will cost somewhere between $1 and $500. 🙂

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
