Open for Pre-Orders + Greenlight is a go!!!
Hello gamers!
I’m happy to announce that Deep Space Settlement[] enters its pre-order phase!

The game has been in pre-production since 2011 and will hit the First Playable milestone by the end of the year. By pre-ordering now[] you will get exclusive access to this very first milestone release and will be a privileged early backer and supporter of the development team. We will listen to your first-hand feedback and you will help shaping the awesome 4X RTS game Deep Space Settlement thrives to be.

The game has been completely self-funded until now, at first with personal savings and later through side contract jobs. Now, full time dedication to the project would require your support and we feel the game is close enough to a solid first playable release.
In this release you will be able to:
  • build your first colony
  • design and build you first corvettes and capital ships
  • mine resources
  • basic trading with local non-player factions / races
  • defend against invaders
  • Single player
  • Multiplayer(allied)
  • Have fun!!

Q. When will it release?
A. We strongly believe that in order to make Deep Space Settlement one of the best 4X RTS game out there we need to take the necessary time to nurture the game in all it's glory. Setting us hard deadlines would compromise the quality of DSS. Please understand that we are a small team of passionate and dedicated indie game developers who will do whatever it takes to put an awesome game in your hands. By pre-ordering the game you will contribute to this goal and we can't express our gratitude enough. Thank you!

You are part of a multi-generational mission to colonize distant regions of space. Your journey brings you to a star cluster rich in resources and lightly populated. Or so it seems. Your goal is clear: setup a space settlement and thrive. Whether you choose to make allies or conquer through supremacy is up to you.

Who is behind this?
Deep Space Settlement has been in development by a tiny indie team for 3 years.
After having worked for 6 years in AAA game development, Stéphanie Rancourt has founded Escape Velocity Studios, seeking more independence and more creative freedom.

Doing all game design and programming she is supported by Mathias Koehler, an Industrial Designer focusing on Entertainment Design Spaceships and everything else art related.

Our aim is to bring to you the best 4X RTS experience we possibly can, without publisher involvement, for the love of the genre and making games. This is about creating our and perhaps your dream game.
DSS is built from the ground up on a custom engine populated with all original content.

I would definitely purchase this since SOASE is getting a bit old, and this looks quite amazing. Is a coop-based team system going to be available? (Such as in Starcraft whereas 2 or more people can control a single side with shared resources).
