StarCrawlers: Music Update with Ben Prunty
Description
Release date: Late 2014
Lead a crew of freelance adventurers and navigate a web of corporate intrigue on the fringes of space in a classic CRPG style.

You’re a Crawler, and that means you work for those that can pay. Asset recovery, commercial espionage, and mayhem for hire are just a few of your crew’s specialized services. If something shady needs doing, chances are a Crawler will be involved. Succeed and you’ll be rewarded with better pay then any corp drone can dream of. Plus, you'll earn the respect of the eclectic assortment of merchants, opportunists and adventurers who make their home in the fringes of space.

In StarCrawlers, you’ll lead a crew of Crawlers, each with their own unique skills and abilities. Together you’ll take on jobs to explore abandoned spacecraft, battle mighty enemies, and unravel corporate intrigue. Some key features of StarCrawlers:
  • Classic first person dungeon crawling in a detailed sci-fi universe
  • Narrative AI procedurally generates missions and dungeons with randomized encounters, traps, and enemies
  • Strategic RPG style combat featuring a time unit action system
  • An atmospheric soundtrack by Ben Prunty
  • Class ability customization and modification
  • Randomly generated and upgradeable loot
  • PC, Mac, and Linux support

Classic CRPG with a sci-fi flavor

In StarCrawlers you'll be navigating the halls of massive abandoned ships and sneaking through corporate facilities in a dynamic and interactive environment. Hack terminals to create shortcuts or find valuable data, disable or evade a variety of traps, grab as much salvage as you can carry, and keep your eyes peeled for hidden areas, loot and enemies.

Narrative AI
Randomized environments doesn't just mean slapping rooms together! The Narrative AI in StarCrawlers builds procedurally generated levels based on the story of the mission you're running. Whether on a rescue job in a pirate hulk or extracting data from a corp security station, your dungeon will be custom built to match. Lower the difficulty level for a casual dungeon dive or crank it to 11 and face fiendish traps, complex dungeons, and the toughest enemies. The Narrative AI is also responsive: your choice of allies and how you resolve events will alter not only the results of the mission, but the course of your story.

Strategic RPG style combat
Combat in StarCrawlers has a traditional turn-based RPG style and features a time unit action system. Unleash a series of light attacks with speedy, low cost actions, or strike a mighty blow with a heavy, high cost action. Smart choices about which abilities to use and when make the difference between victory and defeat. Take a look at the video below to see combat in action.

Build a Relentless Crew of Crawlers
No Crawler can survive alone. You'll need to hire a crew, level them up, specialize their abilities, and customize their gear. Each Crawler class has a unique set of combat abilities as well as special skills that provide advantages outside of combat - helping you to navigate your environment more effectively, and deal with traps, encounters, and threats. Assembling a crew that works well together is a focus of StarCrawlers! Initial classes include:

The Cyber Ninja
A swift fighter, the Cyber Ninja has high damage output and is handy in situations that require stealth and cunning. As melee combatants, they can be vulnerable to counter-attack, but have abilities that help evade and retaliate against the clumsy strikes of their foes.

The Hacker
Technical virtuosos, Hackers possess powerful tools to corrupt and control their enemies, but lack in direct damage attacks. Their high-tech skills are vital outside of combat to disable traps, hack security terminals and access secure data.

The Soldier
Specializing in advanced weaponry and raw power, the Soldier’s a likely candidate If you need something blown-up, exploded, or detonated. If you’re looking to charm the locals - you may want to consider other options.

The Void Psyker
The Void Psyker draws power from a dimension beyond what is visible to average humans. They are capable of building up tremendous psychic energy and unleashing high damage attacks to obliterate their foes. However, tapping into the void is dangerous and carries the risk of unleashing a deadly backlash.
